COVID-19 is the abbreviation for the Coronavirus Disease 2019
All races of people can get it. It does not discriminate. It has no political affiliation, and it was not caused by a particular political party.
COVID-19 is spread primarily from person-to-person contact when the air, water, and mucus (droplets) from an infected individual's respiratory tract gets pushed through the air when he or she is breathing, coughing, sneezing, talking, or singing and lands in the eyes, nose, or mouth of an uninfected person. Generally, the droplets can be projected up to 6 feet. However, when an individual is singing or yelling, the increased air pressure from the lungs can cause the droplets to be projected up to 10 feet. It is important to note that the infected person may have symptoms of the disease or may be asymptomatic (showing no symptoms of infection).
Because of this, it is important that you wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth when you leave your home. Wearing a mask incorrectly makes you more susceptible to contracting the disease and spreading it amongst your friends, family, and community.
In addition to being spread through droplets, COVID-19 remains in the air for up to 3 hours after leaving a person's body. It can remain on cardboard for up to 24 hours. It can remain on plastic and stainless steel for 2-3 days and on metal for 4-5 days. As such, it is important for you to wash your hands frequently and clean your hands (either by washing them or with hand sanitizer) before touching your face.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are certain races immune to the corona virus?
No. No one is immune to the virus. Individuals with pre-existing conditions, immunodeficiencies, and/or are elderly are considered high risk because their bodies will have a more difficult time (compared to their counterparts) fighting off the virus .
Was the virus created to effect the re-election of the current president of the United States?
No. COVID-19 is a global pandemic--as opposed to something just based in the United States. This means that people in many different countries throughout the world have both contracted and died from this disease. As individuals in other countries do not vote in the elections of the US president, their deaths and the rate of infection, globally, would be an ineffective means of directly effecting an election here.
Is the virus contracted from or caused by 5G networks?
No. 5G Networks emit what is called radiofrequency radiation (RFR) within an electromagnetic spectrum similar to that of your cell phone, computer monitor, or microwave. Corona virus is spread through the spread of infected droplets --see more information above.
I don't like to wear the masks because they make it difficult for me to breathe. What can I do?
It is extremely important that you keep your nose and mouth covered in order to reduce the possibility of contracting the disease or spreading the disease. If you find the disposable masks to hinder your breathing, try purchasing or making cloth masks, using a bandanna , or a face shield that you can attach to your forehead and that falls below your chin. Remember, wearing a mask is not just about protecting yourself. It's also about protecting your friends, family, and community.
