This means disinfecting contact surfaces such as elevator buttons, escalator rails and counter tops. Cleaning frequency has been increased, focusing more on making sure bathrooms are cleaned every two hours. We’ve also installed hand sanitiser inside all of our amenities, and throughout the facility we are promoting hygiene practices in line with government advice.

Yes, it is more dangerous than flu. For flu it tends to be about 0.1 per cent rate affection. That simply equates 1 in 1000 people For COVID-19 at the moment, the global case fatality rate is over 3 percent,  At this rate COVID-19 would be about 10 times more deadly than seasonal flu, which is estimated to kill between 290,000 and 650,000 people globally every year statistically.

Unlike influenza, for which we have anti-viral medicines and vaccines, there are currently no licensed vaccines or drugs for COVID-19, although there are several in development. and testing around the world which can take quite amount of reasonable time.

The COVID19 virus responsible for spreading the disease  continues to sweep across the country and declared national emergency.

The COVID19 is more deadly than the flu around 80% of people with COVID-19 just have a mild to moderate illness that lasts about two weeks. However, the percentage of people who develop severe impacts with COVID-19 are higher than it is for flu making it more severe. According to the WHO, 15 per cent of COVID-19 cases are severe infections that require oxygen, and 5 per cent are critical infections, requiring ventilation. More over the mortality rate to assess the danger of the COVID19 is higher than for flu.  For flu it tends to be about 0.1 per cent. This equates to around one in one thousand people. For COVID-19 at the moment, the global case fatality rate is over 3 percent statistically, although we think it’s probably closer to 1 per cent. At this rate COVID-19 would be about 10 times more deadly  flu. Hence more dangerous.

People may be sick with the virus for 1 to 14 days before developing symptoms. The most common symptoms of corona virus disease (COVID-19) are fever, tiredness, dry cough, sore throat, fatigue and shortness of breath.

Most people around 80% will recover easily with not a lot of treatment while others my get sick quickly

If any of these symptoms arise it is very important to contact your health department immediately and maintain social distance to help others.

Although everyone has risk of contacting the COVID19, but these are particular groups that are more prone to contacting the virus.

For COVID-19, those most at risk are:

  • People who have recently been in a high risk country or region (such as mainland China, Iran, Italy or Korea).
  • People who have been in close contact with someone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19.
  • Elderly people (60+).
  • People with chronic and breathing medical conditions.
  • People who have compromised or weaker immune systems.

Although seems like flu like symptoms, COVID19 is not the same as flu. However there are similarities which include: they are both viruses that cause Flu and COVID19, they both cause fever, fever, coughing and a sore throat, and in both cases, symptoms can vary from mild to fatal.

Since it is SARS categorised virus it is much more deadlier then the flu. Statistically at a rate of 1 per cent, COVID-19 would be about 10 times more deadly than seasonal flu, which is estimated to kill between 290,000 and 650,000 people globally every year.

It is very important to maintaining safety from the corona virus here are some important steps to take:

  • Wash your hands frequently

Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.

  • Maintain social Distancing
