COVID19 - Advice and Coping

The impact of COVID-19 on the Coach Industry and our society in general cannot be underestimated. Good advice on dealing with the virus itself can be difficult to come by. The following is advice issued by Dr Ted Lankester, an expert in Global Health and from the Arukah Network and has been reproduced with their permission:

During this ongoing outbreak of Coronavirus, Covid-19, a big problem we face is fake news. There are some incorrect and sometimes dangerous ideas on social media. But I’d also like to share with you a few lines on Coronavirus and how to cope with it, along with some helpful science-based websites.

Each country is in a different stage of the epidemic. The epidemic rises to a peak and then slows down- the time scale for this differs between countries. China has probably passed its peak and the number of cases and deaths has fallen dramatically. Here in Europe we are moving towards a surge and are taking drastic action. For many countries it’s hard to know when the peak will occur and how many cases will be involved.

So in practice, I would like to highlight 5 things:

1. Follow the official advice from government. This includes measures they are putting in place such as details about closures of schools, sports events and mass gatherings, and information about closing borders and other travel restrictions.

2. Reduce your risk of getting infected by Coronavirus (adapted by latest advice from the UK’s National Health Service):

    • Wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds;
    • Always wash your hands when you get home or into work and before eating;
    • Use hand sanitiser (at least 60% alcohol) if available and washing with soap is not easy;
    • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze;
    • Put used tissues ideally in a bin or dispose immediately and wash your hands afterwards;
    • Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean

3. Understand Coronavirus in the context of other serious health issues in our world. Of course, Covid-19 is serious and spreading. We don’t know enough about it. And we don’t yet have a vaccine. At the time of writing (13th March) according to the latest WHO information, there have been 132,758 confirmed cases and 4,955 confirmed deaths. The numbers are rapidly increasing and the number of actual cases is considerably more. But by comparison, according to the World Health Organisation, Flu causes up to 650,000 deaths from lung illnesses each year, TB kills 1.5 million per year, and Malaria kills 445,000 people per year.

4. Take action to avoid fear. There are two epidemics going on. One is Corona and the other is fear. Let’s make sure we stick to truth and  take action to avoid fear and panic. Let’s remember the low risk of death for the vast majority of us and concentrate on positive ways we can protect ourselves, and ways we can help each other.

5. We should support each other whatever the situation.
