How Hong Kong Residents Should Prevent Coronavirus Pneumonia Infection from Wuhan China?

  • January 23,2020
  • The recent outburst of coronavirus from Wuhan China to Hong Kong (and a few other places in the APAC regions) may have caused some health concerns.

    Dr. Yuen Kwok Yung of Hong Kong is a highly respected doctor during the previous SARS period (in 2003) who recently has given us the following advice.

    1. Hong Kong citizens/residents should avoid traveling to China during the recent weeks.

    2. When going on a flight, make sure you wear a mask.

    3. Carry antiseptic cleanser or towel at all times.

    4. The virus “Coronavirus” is a similar type of virus like the previous SARS or MERS. This time it is OC43. There is still no known method to tackle this virus.

    5. When you have to go to the grocery market, make sure you wear a mask. At the same time, be very vigilant.

    6. Health Authority announced that this virus is very severe.

    The virus is able to enter your body if your throat or throat mucous is dry, and that’s why you should ensure your throat or throat mucous is always in a moist condition.

    In fact, don’t let your throat to become dry for over 10 minutes, as this allows the chance for the virus to enter your body. The solution is to always bring a bottle of water with you, and drink water regularly.

    Adults should drink 50-80cc of warm water. Children should drink 30-50cc.

    Also, don’t hesitate to drink when you feel your throat is dry. But drinking a lot more than the amount recommended is not necessary, as the water will just pass through your system (and will have no use). The idea is to keep your throat in a moist condition.

    7. Before end of March this year, avoid entering crowded places. If you need to enter the MTR or public Transport, make sure you wear a mask.

    8. Avoid eating too much deep fried food and take plenty of Vitamin C.

    9. The control centre’s advice on the symptoms of the coronavirus:

    The infected persons may get fast and high fever.

    In the next stage, the infected persons may be coughing for long duration, and usually people who are affected are mainly children.

    Adults would get mainly throat symptoms with headaches and physical discomforts.
