How it spreads: COVID-19 is a respiratory illness, so it spreads through droplets that are shared when someone who is infected coughs, sneezes, and/or speaks.
Typical indications include coughing, fever, and flu-like symptoms, which in mild cases last about two weeks
In some cases, the virus can develop into shortness of breath, pneumonia, or potentially death
The older patients are, as well as if they have pre-existing illnesses, the more they are at risk
How to protect yourself and others
Stay home and avoid close contact with others
Wash hands frequently and thoroughly
Disinfect surfaces and objects that are touched often
Help us raise awareness and reach our goal to help those in need.
Donations (We are raising funds through a GoFundMe page for Partners In Health (PIH) which is a global health organization restoring social justice by bringing quality health care to the most vulnerable around the world. Partners in Health strives to achieve two major goals; some of which bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need of them and to serve as an antidote to despair.
They draw on the resources of the world’s leading medical and academic institutions and on the lived experience of the world’s poorest and sickest communities.
In terms of the COVID-19 outbreak, Partners in Health (PIH) is aware that COVID-19 will disproportionately affect the most vulnerable and hit countries with weak health systems the hardest.
PIH launched a comprehensive effort to support this response across its network of supported countries around the world to: contain and control the spread of the virus, ensure that patients are provided with dignified care, and demonstrate to the world what aggressive action and vulnerable settings can achieve.
