Covid19 Updates from the SSTC Nurse's Desk (Ep8)
The corona virus is now in community spread. This means that persons are contracting the disease and are not able to trace the source. As of November 16, 2020, there are 9929 reported cases, 231 deaths, 5330 recovered cases and 4237 active cases. The western region has 1027 of these active cases.
Covid19 is not over. At this time, we must double up on our precautionary measures as stipulated by the Ministry of Health and Wellness. As we are not able to trace the source of spread, everyone should be treated as positive, hence, social distance must be maintained between all the persons we encounter. If we are familiar with these persons whether through home or work, we must maintain physical distance and wear our masks. When wearing masks, they must cover your mouth and nose. Corona viruses enter the nose and then go to the throat. Covering the nose only is not protecting you. Wear well -fitting masks so that there is no need for constant adjustment. It is by wearing the mask that we will become accustomed to it.
