Hengyang City is conducting a campaign to promote knowledge about the hygiene of drinking water A:


From May 13th to 19th, which marks the 13th National Drinking Water Hygiene Promotion Week in China, various initiatives are being undertaken to extensively publicize knowledge about the hygiene of drinking water. On May 16th, the Municipal Health Commission organized the Municipal Health and Family Planning Comprehensive Supervision and Law Enforcement Bureau, the Municipal Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the Zhuhui District Health and Family Planning Comprehensive Supervision and Law Enforcement Bureau, the Municipal Water Affairs Group, and communities such as Guangmingli, Fuhuali, and Miaonulu Road in the Zhuhui District to conduct activities promoting knowledge about the hygiene of drinking water at the Railway Cultural Square.

 


On that morning, the information-rich display boards at the Railway Cultural Square attracted many local residents to stop and observe. Staff members distributed brochures such as "Questions and Answers on the Hygiene of Drinking Water" to passersby. Through interactive question-and-answer sessions and other methods, the staff members promoted knowledge about the hygiene of drinking water and relevant laws and regulations to the public. They emphasized the importance of safe drinking water and water conservation, guided citizens to dispel misconceptions about drinking water, and encouraged them to adopt scientific drinking water concepts. Personnel from the Disease Control and Prevention Center conducted on-site sampling and testing of drinking water at the Guangmingli Primary School cafeteria and a restaurant near the main gate of Hengyang Normal University's new campus. The test results showed that the drinking water met the national hygiene standards.

 

The hygiene of drinking water directly affects the health and safety of the people. In recent years, the Municipal Health and Family Planning Comprehensive Supervision and Law Enforcement Bureau has always prioritized the safety of drinking water. They have actively conducted publicity campaigns on drinking water hygiene, strengthened supervision and law enforcement of drinking water hygiene, and cooperated with the Municipal Center for Disease Control and Prevention to conduct quarterly monitoring and testing of water from factories and terminal points of the pipeline network, with the results being publicly disclosed on government websites. This ensures that the people can drink safe and trustworthy water.

 

The relevant person in charge of the Municipal Health and Family Planning Comprehensive Supervision and Law Enforcement Bureau stated that the purpose of this campaign during the National Drinking Water Hygiene Promotion Week is to guide the public to scientifically understand and properly address issues related to the hygiene and safety of drinking water, emphasizing the importance of water hygiene and cultivating good habits of drinking water hygiene among the citizens.

    • Q: Contact lens must not be worn during outbreak?
      A:

      It is alleged contact lenses should not be worn during the novel coronavirus outbreak.


      In fact, contact lenses can be used as long as they are kept clean, said Ye Jian, an ophthalmologist of Daping Hospital in Chongqing municipality.


      Before putting a lens into an eye or taking a lens out, one should sterilize their hands. But in cases where someone shows symptoms, such as coughing and eye discomfort, or has contacted with an infected person, stop using contact lens, and go see a doctor.

    • Q: Does sharing thermometer spread coronavirus?
      A:

      Our inner body is protected by the wall of skin against virus and using a shared mercury thermometer by an infected patient is not likely to be affected by the novel coronavirus.


      The virus is mainly spread through droplet discharged by patients or close contact with them. A shared mercury thermometer may carry the virus if it comes into contact with hands of infected patients if they leave their droplets on it. The shared thermometer used in hospitals and other public health institutes are disinfected after one use to kill the virus.


      Do remember to wash hands carefully and avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with uncleaned hands as the virus may enter your body through these mucosal tissue. Give special protection to broken skin to prevent the virus from entering from the broken parts.

    • Q: Can hot/humid climates stop spread of COVID-19?
      A:

      From the evidence so far, the COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in ALL AREAS, including areas with hot and humid weather, according to the World Health Organization.


      Regardless of climate, adopt protective measures if you live in, or travel to an area reporting COVID-19, the WHO advises on its official website.


      The best way to protect yourself against COVID-19 is by frequently cleaning your hands, the WHO website says.


      By doing this you eliminate viruses that may be on your hands and avoid infection that could occur by then touching your eyes, mouth, and nose.


      From the evidence so far, the COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in ALL AREAS, including areas with hot and humid weather...

      A:

      Rumors said eating garlic can protect people from getting infected with the new coronavirus.


      The fact is, there is no evidence that eating garlic does help, although garlic is a healthy food that may have some antimicrobial properties.

    • Q: Can sun exposure kill the novel coronavirus?
      A:

      Sun exposure cannot kill the novel coronavirus. 


      The irradiation temperature of the sun cannot reach 56 C, and the ultraviolet rays cannot reach the intensity of ultraviolet lamps, so the virus can't be killed by the sun.


      If you want to go out for a sun bath, please wear a mask and take other protective measures.


      Sun exposure cannot kill the novel coronavirus. The irradiation temperature of the sun cannot reach 56 C, and the ultra...
    • Q: Can taking a hot bath or using air conditioning kill the nov...
      A:

      Taking a hot bath or blowing air conditioning cannot kill the novel coronavirus. 


      Although the novel coronavirus is vulnerable to heat, it can only be effectively inactivated after exposure to a 56 C temperature for over 30 minutes.


      Taking a hot bath or blowing air conditioning cannot kill the novel coronavirus. Although the novel coronavirus is vuln...
    • Q: Can coronavirus be spread through the air?
      A:

      The virus that causes COVID-19 is primarily transmitted through "respiratory droplets and close contacts", and it doesn't seem to stay long in the air, according to a recent publication released by the World Health Organization.


      According to the publication on the WHO's official website, respiratory infections can be transmitted through droplets of different sizes.


      Droplet transmission occurs when you have close contact (within 1 meter) with a person who has respiratory symptoms such as coughing or sneezing, which may spread these potentially infectious droplets, typically 5-10 microns in size, to your body. Transmission may also occur by touching surfaces or objects in the immediate environment around the infected person.


      Airborne transmission is different from droplet transmission, as it refers to the presence of microbes within droplet nuclei, which are generally considered to be smaller particles of less than 5 microns in diameter, and which can remain in the air for long periods of time and be transmitted to others over distances greater than 1 meter.


      In the context of COVID-19, airborne transmission may be possible in specific circumstances in which procedures or support treatments that generate aerosols are performed, such as intubation within a patient's windpipe, disconnecting a patient from a ventilator, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).


      According to the publication, no cases of transmission by air were reported in an analysis of 75,465 patients with the coronavirus in China.


      Based on the current evidence, the World Health Organization continues to recommend droplet and contact precautions for those people caring for COVID-19 patients. And it's recommended that people take measures to prevent possible transmission by air when performing medical operations that produce aerosols.


      The virus that causes COVID-19 is primarily transmitted through "respiratory droplets and close contacts", and it doesn'...
