The coronavirus pandemic is making headlines around the world and many of the media outlets seem to be causing more fear than necessary. While an important topic of discussion, rather than instilling fear in people, we need to provide information and advice that can help keep us safe. This is especially important when it comes to our baby. Surrogate mothers have an even more difficult task during the coronavirus pandemic as they must keep both themselves, and their babies, safe from contracting the coronavirus disease.
What Is The Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)
What is the coronavirus disease? The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China.
What Are The Symptoms Of COVID-19?
- Patients with COVID-19 have had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of fever, cough and shortness of breath.
- If you have any of these symptoms, you should contact your physician right away to ensure that both you and your baby are safe and healthy.
World Health Organization Guidelines
According to the World Health Organization, “you can reduce your risk of infection if you:
- Clean hands frequently with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
- Cover nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing with tissue or flexed elbow.
- Avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms.”
Protecting yourself and your baby from the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak is as simple as following the above World Health Organization guidelines and being prepared with the knowledge and supplies you need to stay healthy and safe.
