MERS VIRUS NOW IN KOREA






Nalaman natin ang tungkol sa kumakalat na balita tungkol sa MERS Virus dito sa Korea dahil sa concerned post ni Ms. Bhing Diamzon ng Seoul Global Center. At noong gabi mismo ay nagresearch tayo tungkol sa balitang ito at confirmed nga dahil sa mga news na naglabasan sa mga internet sites ng BBC, CNN at iba pa.













Ito ang mga links para sa karagdagang kaalaman.

Ngayong andito na nga ang virus na ito mas mabuting kilalanin natin ang sakit na ito sa pamamagitan ng videos na ating nakuha sa youtube.













Papano ang dapat nating gawin para makaiwas na magkaron tayo ng ganitong sakit, dahil sa loob lang ng isang linggo 13 na ang kumpirmadong meron nito?


Currently, there is no vaccine to prevent MERS-CoV infection. The U.S. National Institutes of Health is exploring the possibility of developing one.
CDC routinely advises that people help protect themselves from respiratory illnesses by taking everyday preventive actions:
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, and help young children do the same. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid personal contact, such as kissing, or sharing cups or eating utensils, with sick people.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as toys and doorknobs.

Papano sya natatransmit?

MERS-CoV has spread from ill people to others through close contact, such as caring for or living with an infected person. Infected people have spread MERS-CoV to others in healthcare settings, such as hospitals. Researchers studying MERS have not seen any ongoing spreading of MERS-CoV in the community.

Kaya mas maige na iwasang magkasakit at maospital dahil mas malaki ang exposure nito sa ospital. Sa ngayon mas maiging palakasin ang resistensya.


Ano ang mga simtomas ng may MERS?



Most people confirmed to have MERS-CoV infection have had severe acute respiratory illness with symptoms of:
  • fever
  • cough
  • shortness of breath
