Advice from the scientists: Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
The stages of Corona:
- Stage 1: Infection is imported, that is an infected person comes from abroad.
- Stage 2: Local transmission, when this known infected person(s) transmits the disease to those he or she interacts with (family, friends and the like).
- Stage 3: Community transmission, wherein it’s difficult to pinpoint the source of infection and a person tests positive without any travel history or any contact history with a positive case.
- Stage 4: When the disease is declared an epidemic, where it has spread to the entire country. India currently is at Stage 2 of the outbreak.
India is fighting to keep Corona at stage 2 and eliminate it at that level and that can only be achieved by self isolation and stepping back from social gatherings and not to repeat the mistake of many countries in Europe.
