We Have to Fight it!

For the very obvious reason, Covid19 is making headlines. It has become a pandemic. I cannot blame the people from worrying, but what I think is unecessary thing to do is to hoard food and medical supplies as if the world is going to end because of the virus. The virus spreads through droplets by sneezing, coughing and touching contaminated stuff like for example money that came from someone who is infected and sneezed/coughed on the money. Many have died both private people and health workers. But it is still curable. It just that it spreads faster and has a higher mortality rate than for example, a typical flu virus. The best way to minimize the risk of transmitting the virus is to wash hands often and as much as possible to not touch the face.

We can try to prevent getting sick by staying at home and avoiding crowded places. However, there are circumstances that you are obliged to go out. And somehow and somewhere someone in your household might catch the virus and you get sick. I’m not scaring anyone but this virus could be anywhere.

Since there is no vaccine for Covid19 (yet) and since this a virus, there is no medicine against it. We have no choice but to fight it. Our body has to fight it. In our Biology class we are thought that we have this micro soldiers in our system that fights intruders, like viruses, bacteria and etc. These micro soldiers are the white blood cells or the leucocytes and these are produced in our bones. So, it is very important that we drink our milk everyday because of Calcium. Also, vitamin D is important too for our bone health and immune system, as it aids in the absorption of Calcium.

Scientists, microbiologists and medical doctors are working round the clock to make a vaccine. Our health workers especially those in the frontline are risking their lives to help the infected and give strength to those who are dying. We can help our medical team by staying inside and as much as possible avoid getting sick these days. Because what actually kills is not the virus itself, but the lack of medical attention due to the higher number of patients vs medical staff (respirators). Let the situation in Italy be a lesson to everyone. Do not underestimate the virus!
