Continue to Follow Commonsense Precautions for Coronavirus

February 11, 2020

The number of coronavirus cases continues to rise, with more than 900 deaths reported as of yesterday morning, CBS news reports.

Confirmed coronavirus infections in mainland China rose 15% over the weekend to over 40,000. More than 300 cases have been confirmed outside China, including 12 in the United States. Dozens of new cases were confirmed yesterday on a quarantined cruise ship in Yokohama, Japan, with 135 people removed from the ship for treatment, including at least 23 American passengers. Most of the 3,711 passengers and crew remain under isolation orders on the ship.

It’s easy to panic with all the news about this new virus, but according to the World Health Organization coronavirus is not a pandemic. Biohazard experts, such as the Global BioRisk Advisory Council® (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, emphasize cleaning and disinfection methods to keep the virus under control. These methods include a proper risk assessment as well as proper personal protective equipment.

Medical experts also recommend commonsense precautions, such as not touching your face and staying away from people who are coughing and sneezing. Learn more about the coronavirus, a ball-shaped germ with spikes that attach to cells in your lungs, by viewing this video from CBC news.
