FAQ and latest information on New Coronavirus Infection
*Let’s try our best to collaborate, with the right knowledge*




The so-called New Coronavirus (SARS-Cov2) is one among the seven types of coronavirus known up to now. It is said that coronavirus usually is passed over between animals of the same species, but rarely passes to animals of a different species and loses its infectivity with 70% alcohol disinfectant.

There are mainly two ways for the infection to spread. A “droplet infection” is one where the virus, expelled via sneezing and coughing of the infected subject, is then inhaled via nose and mouth. A “contact infection” happens when touching the mouth with hands which previously entered in contact with chairs and doorknobs where the virus was attached. 

Effective measures for preventing infection are handwashing and gargling. It is also important to strengthen one’s immunity with enough sleep and a balanced diet.
