New Delhi: With the recent increase in coronavirus cases, the government is regularly taking new measures like escalation of beds at hospitals and 24 hours vaccination in government hospitals. The third wave of the coronavirus seems to be far more dangerous as the virus is spreading very fast.
Many people are still confused about the symptoms, how it is transmitted, how to prevent the spread of disease, and many more. According to the reports of the National Health Mission, people mainly ask questions about how Covid-19 is transmitted. The answer to that is that it mainly transmitted through contact with respiratory droplets rather than through the air.
If a person sitting next to you is having the virus then you can catch Covid-19. It spreads through the small droplets from the nose or mouth when a person suffering from Covid-19 coughs or sneezes. That is why one meter away from a person who is sick is mandatory.
People with no symptoms or asymptomatic cases can also spread the Covid-19. According to the reports of the National Health Mission, the disease is spread through respiratory droplets expelled by someone who is coughing whereas the risk of catching Covid-19 from someone with no symptoms at all is very low.
Also many people with Covid-19 experience mild symptoms, which is particularly true at the early stage of the disease. Therefore, it is possible to catch someone who has Covid-19. People tend to work even after they catch the virus as they don’t experience any symptoms like fever, coughing, no taste in food, etc.
This can be very challenging for people if the asymptomatic cases of Covid-19 rise in the future. If you feel you have recently come in contact with any patient then go and get it checked with your doctor.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) reports, asymptomatic patients include people of all ages. It was reflected in studies that children also seem to play a big role in spreading the silent spread of Covid-19. People should be more cautious about these cases as unknowingly it can be spread to another person.
