COVID-19 FAQS

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus.
 
The disease causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing. You can protect yourself by washing your hands frequently, avoiding touching your face, and avoiding close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell.

Coronavirus disease spreads primarily through contact with an infected person when they cough or sneeze. It also spreads when a person touches a surface or object that has the virus on it, then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth.

They can be contacted directly by calling 0729471414 & 0732353535 or calling 719 or texting – *719#

People may be sick with the virus for 1 to 14 days before developing symptoms. The most common symptoms of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment.
 
More rarely, the disease can be serious and even fatal. Older people, and people with other medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, or heart disease), may be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill.

People may experience:
cough
fever
tiredness
difficulty breathing (severe cases)

OTHER FAQS

To work out your BMI:
divide your weight in kilograms (kg) by your height in metres (m)
then divide the answer by your height again to get your BMI

For example:
If you weigh 70kg and you’re 1.75m tall, divide 70 by 1.75.
The answer is 40.
Then divide 40 by 1.75.
The answer is 22.9. This is your BMI.

Note:
Underweight: Your BMI is less than 18.5.
Healthy weight: Your BMI is 18.5 to 24.9.
Overweight: Your BMI is 25 to 29.9.

Within a healthy, balanced diet, a man needs around 10,500kJ (2,500Kcal) a day to maintain his weight. For a woman, that figure is around 8,400kJ (2,000Kcal) a day. These values can vary depending on age, metabolism and levels of physical activity, among other things.

Most people can get all the vitamins and minerals they need by eating a healthy, balanced diet.

You’re most fertile within a day or two either side of an egg being released from your ovaries (ovulation).
But you can get pregnant if you have sex at any point during the week before ovulation, as sperm can live inside a woman’s body for up to seven days.

If you’re hoping to get pregnant, you don’t need to specifically plan sex around this time though. It can be difficult to work out exactly when you ovulate and trying to have sex to a schedule can cause unnecessary stress and anxiety – and may mean you actually end up having less sex.

For the best chance of getting pregnant, have sex every two or three days throughout your cycle.
