2020 was a unique year to say the least. A trendy term for 2020 has been the word unprecedented.
The new coronavirus disease, called COVID-19, has appeared and spread extremely quickly, making its way to over numerous countries since its December 2019 discovery in China.
A pandemic is a widespread occurrence of an infectious disease over a whole country or the world at a particular time.
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.
When a pandemic occurs, it is important to take action to help slow the spread of the virus.
Masks should be used as part of a comprehensive strategy of measures to suppress transmission and save lives; the use of a mask alone is not sufficient to provide an adequate level of protection against COVID-19. If COVID-19 is spreading in your community, stay safe by taking some simple precautions, such as physical distancing, wearing a mask, keeping rooms well ventilated, avoiding crowds, cleaning your hands, and coughing into a bent elbow or tissue.
Make wearing a mask a normal part of being around other people. The appropriate use, storage and cleaning or disposal of masks are essential to make them as effective as possible.
Some of the popular clothing & accessory terms of 2020 has been PPE & facemasks. PPE stands for personal protective equipment.
Personal protective equipment (PPE) is protective clothing, helmets, goggles, masks, or other garments or equipment designed to protect the wearer's body from injury or infection.
