Issues of concern after U.S. President Donald Trump's NCoV infection

U.S. health experts recommend that people "look back and act" on masks, social spasm... after President Donald Trump contracted Covid-19. Dr. Trini Mathew, an infectious disease expert and epidemiologist at Beaumont Health, said Mr. Trump is receiving the highest quality medical care. He recommends "not the time to panic," but that people should look back and take action to stop the Covid-19 spread. After the past three days, Trump and his wife have tested positive for NCoV and been hospitalized for treatment, with sometimes mixed information about the state of health.

"Viruses can infect anyone, so we need to be serious, not only to protect ourselves, but also to the people around us," said Dr Trini Mathew.

1.Wear a mask, social isolation

Dr Trini Matthew urged people to wear masks now. She stressed that it is time for people to be calmer and more careful about how to wear a mask as well as wash their hands. "I see people often don't wear masks or wear them improperly," she said. The mask accidentally slides under the nose and protects only the mouth. The hand may have contaminated the mask."

2. The test does not say it all

False negative cases may occur, even if the patient has symptoms of Covid-19. According to Dr Trini Mathew - "a negative test does not exclude the possibility that you have been infected". The results of the nCoV test depend on the development of the disease and the time of the test. In addition, the way health workers take samples for testing also affects the results.

3. Covid-19 Husband Flu Season

The context will be more complicated at a time when the viruses that cause respiratory diseases increase. Dr Trini Mathew advises people "We know about the argument that the influenza vaccine does not protect 100%, but there are safeguards at the moment that are better than not" especially for people at high risk of nCoV infection, such as obese people, diabetes, heart disease, kidneys ...

4. To draw on the responsibilities of each individual to improve

The epidemic has erupted over the past several months, with many tired and losing their vigilance. However, each individual is not only responsible for protecting himself but also those around him, whether with Covid-19 or other infectious diseases such as influenza or measles. Refusing to wear a mask puts you at risk of contracting Covid-19 and spreading it to others, which is more vulnerable.

By the morning of October 5, Covid-19 claimed the lives of more than one million people, over 35 million people infected. The U.S. is currently the most affected country, with more than 7 million people infected, of which more than 200,000 die.
