The situation in Kislovodsk in connection with the coronavirus

The number of infected people is increasing every day in the world, regardless of gender, age, and state of health. In Russia, the first dangerous symptoms were observed in people who arrived from countries with an unfavorable epidemiological situation. In the future, due to the long incubation period (14 days), they infected the rest, not even knowing about the situation.

Are there any patients with the new coronavirus in Kislovodsk

According to international data, covid-19 is transmitted from a sick person to a healthy person by airborne droplets. That is why it is important to rinse your mouth and rinse your nasal cavities as often as possible. If an infected person sneezes on covered surfaces (tables, dishes, phones, bus rails), then the virus can enter the body of another through them, spreading over long distances. Coronavirus in Kislovodsk has not been officially recorded due to the quality work of local authorities, medical services and the understanding of citizens about the need for self-isolation.

According to reports from the World Health Organization (WHO), people of retirement age (after 60 years of age), as well as those with chronic disease problems, are most susceptible to the new virus. They should not be left alone, and at the slightest deterioration in well-being, it is necessary to seek medical help to clarify the causes of the ailment.

A large number of people mistakenly claim that medical masks help them protect themselves from the virus. In fact, they cannot protect the body enough due to the weak fit to the face. Masks are for wearers only.
