When will the coronavirus quarantine, stay-at-home orders finally come to an end? This is the question on everyone’s lips, but still, no one knows the answer to that. The fact is, the virus is still out there, and a lockdown is the only way we can keep ourselves safe till the pandemic is over.
When it is finally a thing of the past, for those already thinking about throwing big parties to celebrate, hug and even travel across the world, not so fast. As the world adjusts to what it is was before, you must know that it will take time for human beings to go through that adjustment phase as well. See 5 Things To Not Do When The Coronavirus Pandemic Is Over:
1. Avoid throwing a party or hitting the bar:
Social distancing will be around for a while. So when you host a party or head to a crowded bar as soon as the virus is “gone,” you are opening the door to any lingering coronavirus in a host that is showing no symptoms.
As you already know, it is a highly contagious virus, so take your time and do not throw caution to the wind too soon.
2. Do not stop washing your hands:
When the pandemic ends or when the government decides to relax lockdown restrictions, your personal hygiene should continue. Keep cleaning those hands to be free of the virus and you will stay healthy just the way you want.
3. Don’t immediately visit high-risk people:
Still on the topic of things to not do when the Coronavirus pandemic is over. Most people are already thinking about visiting their vulnerable and old relatives to give them a big hug when the pandemic is over, it is a good thought but that would be a wrong move.
Maintain your distance for now, to keep yourself and your family safe. We can all hug ourselves later when the battle is completely won.
4. Do not plan any big international vacation:
I am sure some people are already thinking about every place in the world they would love to visit once the restrictions are off, bad idea.
You need to be more patient because intermingling will definitely happen at airports and in airplanes. Do not forget that numerous flights led to the spread of coronavirus globally, avoid it for now.
5. Do not sell your home office and home workout equipment:
The virus is unpredictable. No one knows if a sudden rise in new coronavirus cases might make it imperative to reinstitute quarantine measures. If that is the case, this should not lead you into panicking unnecessarily, remain optimistic and realistic at the same time and you will not make rash judgments with your properties.
More Information On Coronavirus:
Coronaviruses are a group of related viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. In humans, coronaviruses cause respiratory tract infections that can be mild, such as some cases of the common cold (among other possible causes, predominantly rhinoviruses), and others that can be lethal, such as SARS, MERS, and COVID-19.
Symptoms in other species vary: in chickens, they cause an upper respiratory tract disease, while in cows and pigs they cause diarrhea. There are yet to be vaccines or antiviral drugs to prevent or treat human coronavirus infections.
Coronaviruses constitute the subfamily Orthocoronavirinae, in the family Coronaviridae, order Nidovirales, and realm Riboviria. They are enveloped viruses with a positive-sense single-stranded RNA genome and a nucleocapsid of helical symmetry.
The genome size of coronaviruses ranges from approximately 27 to 34 kilobases, the largest among known RNA viruses.
The name coronavirus is derived from the Latin corona, meaning “crown” or “halo”, which refers to the characteristic appearance reminiscent of a crown or a solar corona around the virions (virus particles) when viewed under two-dimensional transmission electron microscopy, due to the surface covering in club-shaped protein spikes.
Human coronaviruses were first discovered in the late 1960s. The earliest ones discovered were an infectious bronchitis virus in chickens and two in human patients with the common cold (later named human coronavirus 229E and human coronavirus OC43).
Other members of this family have since been identified, including SARS-CoV in 2003, HCoV NL63 in 2004, HKU1 in 2005, MERS-CoV in 2012, and SARS-CoV-2 (formerly known as 2019-nCoV) in 2019. Most of these have involved serious respiratory tract infections.
