We are hearing that COVID-19 cases are on the rise as the portions of the country's economy reopens.
Is this normal? Is there cause for concern?
While the virus is considered a pandemic and mortality rates are increasing, the numbers statistically follow suit to other airborne illnesses.
Naturally, when people get together, more people will get sick.
Does this mean that we all should remain indoors? No. Does this mean we can cough in people's faces as a way to poke at the current incident? No.
What should we do? Simple. Take note of your surroundings, if you're sick, stay home. If you're not sick, don't go around hugging everyone you see. If you in a store, don't touch your face until you wash your hands. If you use the restroom, wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Also, wash your hands before you eat.
Seems simple. That's because it is.
So is there a resurgence in COVID cases? Yes, there are because the economy is re-opening in areas of the country. But what does this mean for hospitals and doctors offices?
All healthcare providers who see patients should wear proper PPE. Fortunately, you can find that here at PHP.
