This disease was originally called novel coronavirus. Most people infected with COVID-19, experience mild respiratory illness and recover with some special treatments and it is very dangerous for aged people across the World.
Older people, those who have medical problems like diabetes and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness. At present, vaccines or treatments of coronavirus are not available. Clinical trials are in progress for the coronavirus vaccine.
The best way to prevent and slow down the infection of COVID-19 is be well informed about the cause and how it spreads. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends the following preventive actions.
No doubt there are only 0.2% cases of the coronavirus reported in children across the World. This disease is transmitted from infected people to around them. During this novel coronavirus pandemic, dentists should be more careful with their dental procedures, especially pediatric dentists.
As to your practice of pediatric dentistry, all your dentists and staff members follow the set standard precautions guidelines by the government and let your patients know about precautions. Help kids and their parents to be aware about the precaution’s routine.
