Coronavirus threat: what you absolutely need to know

26/02/2020 Amari Lindroos

The world is experiencing a coronavirus outbreak, and cases can be very severe. Some countries have limited travel, and tourist destinations are closed. Governments around the world are alarmed. You may be feeling anxious, even afraid for yourself and your loved ones.




Don’t worry, we promise we’re here for you. Let’s get started.

Do you know what a coronavirus is?

Here’s what our top Medical Terminology student tells us: “Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause different illnesses, from the common cold to more dangerous conditions. According to WHO (World Health Organization), what we’re now experiencing is a novel coronavirus epidemic, which means an outbreak of a virus strain that’s new in humans.”

Before we proceed, take this opportunity to peek behind the curtain of Medical Terminology, or uncover the secrets of human anatomy. After all, knowledge is power!

Meanwhile, should you be worried?

Right now, most of the reported cases are in Asia.  As of February 24th, studies show there are a total of 80 000 cases in the world. Out of those, 180 are in Europe, and only 1 is in Belgium. Rest assured: take the right steps and you’ll be safe.




What can you do?

  • Wash your hands often. Use an alcohol-based hand-sanitizer 
  • Avoid close contact with sick people
  • Avoid touching your nose, mouth or eyes without washing your hands
  • Clean and disinfect items you regularly use
  • If you feel any symptoms, contact your doctor

But you want to do more. You want to ensure your family is protected- let us help you do it. Take a look at our Healthcare modules and learn the most important things no one tells you about health and wellbeing!

Finally, let’s stay positive. Renowned scientists are working on a treatment as we speak. The outbreak will soon be a thing of the past. Imagine it: you’re sitting at home, watching the news, and you hear the vaccine is ready. Airports are open, you see footage of tourist spots filling up again. You feel yourself smiling.
