Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.
Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.
The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is be well informed about the COVID-19 virus, the disease it causes and how it spreads. Protect yourself and others from infection by washing your hands or using an alcohol based rub frequently and not touching your face.
The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, so it’s important that you also practice respiratory etiquette (for example, by coughing into a flexed elbow).
At this time, there are no specific vaccines or treatments for COVID-19. However, there are many ongoing clinical trials evaluating potential treatments. WHO will continue to provide updated information as soon as clinical findings become available.
Symptoms of Coronavirus
Prevention of Coronavirus
To prevent infection and to slow transmission of COVID-19, do the following:

- Maintain at least 1 metre distance between you and people coughing or sneezing.
- Avoid touching your face.
- Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
- Stay home if you feel unwell.
- Refrain from smoking and other activities that weaken the lungs.
- Practice physical distancing by avoiding unnecessary travel and staying away from large groups of people.

& Human Values
1. The decision by our Hon'ble PM, Shri Narendra Modi.
“This is like a curfew, and far stricter than the ‘Janata Curfew’ (on March 22),” the PM said. “Seeing the present conditions, this lockdown will be for 21 days. This is to save India, save each citizen, and save your family. Do not step outside your house. For 21 days, forget what is stepping outside. There is a Lakshman Rekha on your doorstep. Even one step outside your house will bring the coronavirus inside your house.”
PM Narendra Modi had been declared a three-week nationwide Lockdown-1 starting midnight Tuesday, explaining that it was the only way of breaking the Covid-19 infection cycle. This essentially extended the lockdown from most states and Union Territories to the entire country and provided a more definite timeline. “Social distancing is the only way to break the cycle of infection,”. after that again extended Lockdown-2, Lockdown-3, Lockdown-4, Lockdown-5.
2. Follow Indian Cultures to save ourselve and others from coronavirus.
Indian tradition & cultures teach us what we need to know to avoid coronavirus: Like Namaste Becomes New Trend To Greet People “Namaste”, the Indian way of greeting people is gaining worldwide acceptability in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
The Indian Greeting Namaste Goes Global, Thanks To Coronavirus In an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus, more people, including global leaders, are using the Indian greeting of namaste. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promoted the namaste, saying that the world is increasingly adopting the no-contact way of greeting. People around the world are worried that shaking hands, hugging, and kissing on the cheek might help spread the virus.
The Indian practice of folding hands in namaste instead of shaking hands can help you avoid coronavirus, namaste not a handshake - simple values of Indian culture can help you keep deadly coronavirus at bay.
While the current topic of discussion across the world is a coronavirus, India had ages ago shown the way to beat it. I am not referring to any new or revolutionary discovery but simply the age-old custom of Namaste. I say age-old because I was trying to trace the origin of when people started saying Namaste. But, even Google does not say how old it is or when the custom started.
In fact, there are many well-known world personalities who suffer from Mysophobia (fear of contamination and germs) who would look less snobbish and more graceful if only they understood the rich meaning and adopted the Indian Namaste.
3. Economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in India.
The economic impact of the 2020 coronavirus pandemic in India has been largely disruptive.
According to the survey, COVID-19 is having a 'deep impact' on Indian businesses, over the coming month's jobs are at high risk because firms are looking for some reduction in manpower. Further, it is added that already COVID-19 crisis has caused an unprecedented collapse in economic activities over the last few weeks.
Outcome: Sharp rise in unemployment, Stress on supply chains, Decrease in government income, Collapse of the tourism industry, Collapse of the hospitality industry, Reduced consumer activity, Plunge in fuel consumption. Rise in LPG sales.
Let us have a look at the sector-wise impact on the Indian industry: Chemical Industry, Shipping Industry, Auto Industry, Pharmaceuticals Industry, Textiles Industry, Solar Power Sector, Electronics Industry, IT Industry, Tourism, and Aviation, etc.
4. How COVID-19 stalled global warming & climate changes momentum.
Coronavirus and climate: how much impact is the current lockdown really having on our environment!, Streets are empty, cities are silent, factories are closed and skies are quiet. Surely this has to be good for the environment!
The Covid-19 pandemic has had an immediate impact on our home and work environments, but when it comes to THE environment, the picture is far less clear. Vincent-Henri Peuch believes the current situation may have a big influence on our approach to pollution, moving forward:
“We have a lot of global crises to face. I hope this will make people think: ‘What if we had this sort of air quality not because everyone is forced to sit at home but because we managed the shift to clean transport and energy?’ We have to hope this virus helps us to move forward in fighting climate change and other bigger challenges, rather than taking us back.”
As motorways cleared and factories closed, dirty brown pollution belts shrunk over cities and industrial centers in country after country within days of lockdown. First China, then Italy, now the UK, Germany, India, and dozens of other countries are experiencing temporary falls in carbon dioxide and nitrogen dioxide of as much as 40%, greatly improving air quality and reducing the risks of asthma, heart attacks, and lung disease.

5. Corona Warriors.
Doctors, paramedics, policemen, sanitation workers, and others engaged in different duties in the fight against the COVID-19 are called “corona warriors”.
"The virus may be an invisible enemy. But our warriors, medical workers are invincible. In the battle of invisible vs invincible, our medical workers are sure to win,"
INDIA SALUTES CORONA WARRIORS.
6. Vocal for Local ( Swadeshi Products ).
In a big announcement for 'vocal for local', the home ministry on May 13 declared that 1,700 Central Police Canteens (CPCs) or Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF)canteens will only sell indigenous or "Swadeshi" products from June 1 in a bid to give a boost to domestic industries.
‘Vocal-For-Local Will Stop Unfair Chinese Dumping Of Goods’
We are drawing a comprehensive plan to involve people from all walks of life, including workers, farmers, small-scale entrepreneurs, academicians, technocrats, industry and trade leaders, to spread awareness and promote swadeshi or local products. We will also distribute lists of such products. This is the time for the handholding of local, small-scale manufacturers, artisans, and small businesses. District-level committees will be constituted involving people from industry and trade activists for this purpose.
One of the biggest advantages of 'vocal for local' is that it will provide micro, small and medium enterprises a unique identity.
7. First, save the earth then think about other planets.
The human population is growing quickly, and certain aspects of the earth have been negatively affected by our activities such as - COVID-19 is on trending.
What does the future look like for people living on Earth if we continue to treat our planet the way that we do! then we are not safe on our planet so we should care first our planet then we should think about another planet. as we know that we are growing in the information technology sector, the medical science sector, etc but we are not that much capable to recover fast in any disease.
Could we live on another planet?
No - this is way beyond what we can do right now. so better we need to save our planet first then we should think about another planet.
7. Human Thinking & Human Values.
COVID-19 is the biggest global event—and challenge—of our lifetimes. As such, it is changing human attitudes and behaviors today and forcing organizations to respond. However, the need to respond won’t end when the virus’s immediate threat eventually recedes.
Imagine it's September. Things are back to normal. We can meet face to face. Travel is possible. Toilet paper is easy to buy. But things have changed. COVID-19 has forever changed the experience of being a customer, employee, citizen, human. Expect to see behavior change at scale for some time to come.
How Coronavirus is shaking up the moral universe ? The coronavirus pandemic is a test. It’s a test of medical capacity and political will. It’s a test of endurance and forbearance, for believers a test of religious faith. It’s a test, too, of a different kind of faith, in the strength of the ideas humans choose to help them form moral judgments and guide personal and social behavior.
There is no doubt that the Covid-19 pandemic will change the face of human society, but it forces us to ask some important questions. Will this change only affects the healthcare systems, or will it extend to consumption patterns, value systems, political regimes, and legal systems, thus leading to the fall of the huge financial and economic empires? Will the major transformations the world will undergo be determined by how we recover from the effects of this situation!
