Everything you need to know about the updated COVID-19 Coronavirus.

Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that cause illnesses ranging from the common cold to serious respiratory illnesses.

  • It circulates between humans and animals.
  • Sometimes the Coronavirus that infects animals evolves and is transmitted to people, creating new diseases, as happened with the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) in Asia in February 2003 and the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS- CoV), detected in Saudi Arabia in 2012.

How is the new Coronavirus COVID-19 transmitted?

At first, the virus could have been transmitted between animals and humans (zoonosis), simply through the air, it has been confirmed that the new Coronavirus is transmitted from one infected person to another, by coughing and sneezing, by touching or shaking a person’s hand sick, or by touching an object or surface contaminated with the virus and then touching your mouth, nose and eyes before washing your hands.

Prevention Measures against Coronavirus

Sneeze Etiquette:

  • Al toser o estornudar, cubre tu boca y nariz con un pañuelo desechable y tíralo a la basura.
  • Or use the inner corner of the arm, never your hands!
  • Afterwards, wash your hands with soap and water.

Frequent hand washing:

  • Wash your hands properly with soap and water.
  • Or, use 70% alcohol gel solutions

Safekeeping at home:

If you have cold symptoms:

  • Go to a medical check-up and do not self-medicate.
  • Avoid contact with other people.
  • Avoid giving kisses, shake hands.

DO NOT share personal things:

Personal items such as: cell phones, tablets, laptops, keys, pens, folders, etc. they are excellent candidates for storing bacteria and viruses. Try to disinfect these devices often.

These non-pharmacological measures are the most effective in preventing respiratory diseases from spreading to other people.

  • The updated list of laboratories validated by InDRE will be published and each update thereof will be disseminated by CONAVE.

Temperature Detection Protocol or Process for COVID-19

In order to be able to measure without contact and at a distance, infrared thermometers need to have the property of being able to measure emissivity by infrared. Emissivity is the proportion of thermal radiation emitted by an object due to its temperature. Non-contact infrared temperature measurement is directly dependent on the correct emissivity setting on the thermometer.

Skin Emissivity: 0.98: The measurement with infrared thermometers is the relationship between the distance to the object from the thermometer sensor and the diameter of where the temperature is captured or collected. For example, if the ratio is 10: 1, it means that the optimal measurement distance would be 10 cm and it would capture the temperature of 1 cm in diameter of the body (around where the laser pointer points approximately).

Here we share the temperature detection protocol:
