Still on facts versus fiction on COVID-19
CHILDREN CANNOT GET INFECTED
As at early February, A Chinese study proved that younger people were less likely to contract the virus, even if exposed to it. But in March, it was concluded that children were just as likely to get it as older people were. Although, younger people tend to experience milder cases of the virus.
THE HYPE OF THE VIRUS IS NOT EQUAL TO ITS EFFECT
While it is true that COVID- 19 has not claimed as many lives as Ebola, underestimating it would be a huge mistake. The novel Corona virus is way more infectious than Ebola and you never know which case will be fatal. So forget the buzz, focus on reliable news, wash your hands, keep your hand sanitizer close and elbows at the ready!!!
IT IS NOT SAFE TO RECEIVE A PACKAGE FROM CHINA
According to the World Health Organization, it is safe to receive packages from China. The virus cannot last long on the surfaces used for packages. And so for packages that take some days to deliver, the virus would have died of by its delivery date.
Stay safe, people!
