Lets talk about #COVID19 for the next 1 hour

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which are found in both animals and humans. They cause illnesses from common cold to severe acute respiratory distress syndromes

We have experienced these already

2002 - SARS
2012 -MERS
By now the characteristics of #COVID19 infection are well known. In brief:

1. Incubation period is between 2-14 days
2. Transmission is mainly through droplet via
a air,
b. close personal contact
c. touching your face, mouth, nose or eyes
Touching your face is one of the most efficient ways of ensuring disease transmission. One article published in the Am J Infection control found that on average, a person touches their face 23 times /hr

1/3 of those times touching the mouse and the nose

*the mouth and he face*
