Doctor’s advice about coronavirus:
醫生關於新型冠狀病毒的建議:

  1. It is pretty large in size (cell is about 400-500nm diameter), so any normal mask (not just the N95 feature) should be able to filter it out.
    However, when someone who’s infected sneezes in front of you, it will take a great 3 meters (about 10 feet) before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.
  2. 病毒細胞直徑大約400-500納米,任何正常口罩(不一定是N95類型)都可以將病毒細胞過濾出去。當感染者在你面前打噴嚏,病毒細胞會經過橫向距離為3米的拋物線落在地上,之後才會不經過空氣傳播。
  3. When the virus drops on metal surface, it will live for at least 12 hours. So remember if you come in contact with any metal surface, wash your hands with soap thoroughly.
  4. 當病毒細胞落在金屬表面後會存活12個小時。所以如果你觸碰了金屬表面的話,請記得認真用肥皂或者洗手液洗手。
  5. The virus can remain active on fabric for 6-12 hours. Normal laundry detergent should kill the virus. For winter clothing that does not require daily washing, you can put it out under the sun to kill the virus.
  6. 病毒在布料上可以存活6到12個小時。普通的洗衣液即可殺死病毒。如果是在衣物無需每天清洗的冬天,將衣服放在太陽下曬一曬可以有助於殺死病毒。

About the symptoms of the pneumonia caused by Coronavirus:
以下是新型冠狀病毒肺炎的癥狀:

  1. It will first infect the throat, so the throat will have the dry sore throat feeling which will last for 3 to 4 days
  2. 一開始病毒會感染喉嚨,喉嚨會覺得很乾,這種感覺大約持續3-4天。
  3. Then the virus will blend into the nasal fluid and drips into the trachea and enter the lungs, causing pneumonia. This process will take 5 to 6 days.
  4. 然後病毒會侵入鼻液,再流入氣管,最後進入肺部導致肺炎。這個過程大約持續5-6天。
  5. With pneumonia, comes high fever and difficulty in breathing. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You will feel like you are drowning in water. It’s important to go seek immediate medical attention if you feel like this.
  6. 這個肺炎的表現是高燒和呼吸困難。鼻腔堵塞的感覺跟普通感冒不太一樣,你會覺得有一種溺水無法呼吸的感覺。如果發生這種狀況的話請及時就醫。

About prevention:
關於預防:

  1. The most common way of getting infected is by touching things in public, so you must wash your hands frequently. The virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 mins, but a lot can happen in those 5-10 mins (you can rub your eyes or pick your nose unwittingly).
  2. 通常最有可能感染的方式是在公共場合觸摸了帶有病毒的物體,所以記得勤洗手。病毒在你手上只會存活5-10分鐘,不過即使是短短的5-10分鐘,也要十分警惕(不要用手揉眼睛或者不自覺地摳鼻子)
  3. Aside from washing your hands frequently, you can gargle with Betadine Sore Throat Gargle to eliminate or minimize the germs while they are still in your throat (before dripping down to your lungs).
  4. 除了勤洗手之外,還可以用漱口水漱口,這樣可以殺死或者減少存留在喉嚨裏的病菌,防止起落入肺部引起肺炎。

Take extra care and drink plenty of water.
