There is no vaccine or cure for the disease. Very common Doctors recommend Consuming large amounts of fluids to avoid dehydration, light food and use of pain relievers and antipyretics when pain and fever are accompanied by pain and fever. In severe cases, the patient may be hospitalized to receive intravenous serum and medication.
Good hand hygiene with soap and water is essential to prevent the spread of the virus. No running off the sink either: gel alcohol is not enough to neutralize the pathogen. Regular cleaning of bedding and surfaces such as tables and doorknobs and washing food before eating is highly recommended.
Even after symptoms subside, patients should stay at home for another 48 hours to prevent the spread of the virus. It seems obvious, but don’t visit people in hospitals or nursing homes if you have symptoms.
Children should also not go to school. Although the disease is relatively easy to treat, it can put children and the elderly, who are considered more vulnerable, at greater risk.
