 The girl was given the name Corona, while the boy was named Covid.

 "In the context in which the cars were stopped, we both arrived at the hospital late at night, after much suffering.  Since the birth took place after such great difficulties, I wanted the names to be memorable and unique, "the mother of the little ones said.

why-a-mask-with-a-valve-is-not-suitable-for-protection-against-coronavirus

Such protective equipment can make you dangerous to others.


Sometimes protective fabric masks are equipped with a special valve.  In this case, the mask works like this - you inhale air through filters and exhale it through a one-way valve.  Thus, warm air comes out from under the mask faster, it becomes easier to breathe, the mask is easier to wear, and glasses will not fog up.

We put on masks for two reasons.  Firstly, we hope that they will protect us from COVID-19 (however, disputes are still underway regarding the effectiveness of masks).  Secondly, more importantly, the mask does not allow us to infect others, if we are sick and do not suspect it.


 The valve allows free passage of air as it exhales.  This means that an infected person will spread particles of the virus around him as if he weren’t wearing any protection at all.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not recommend using masks and respirators with valves to prevent infection with this disease.


 Such protection can be worn in conditions of smog, dust and smoke - for example, at a construction site or factory where harmful particles are floating in the air.  But the mask with the valve will not stop the spread of the virus.

how-to-protect-yourself-from-coronavirus-if-you-need-to-travel-to-another-city

Important tips to help you reduce the risk of infection on any trip.

The World Health Organization and the American Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that you stay home and not go anywhere until the epidemic is over.

 However, if the trip cannot be postponed in any way, then in this case they also have recommendations that will reduce the risk of infection.  Here are the main ones.

  •  On trains and planes, take the same steps as in other public places - avoid close contact with other people and wear a mask on your face.
  •  Since it is unlikely that you will be able to wash the mask, buy a few disposable ones and change them periodically.
  •  Clean your hands as often as possible.  Take with you a sufficient amount of alcohol-based hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol).  It is not as effective as hand washing, but it is better than nothing.  Remember that you need to grind the brush for at least 30 seconds.
  •  It is especially important to wash your hands after using the toilet, before eating, after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.
  • Try not to touch anything with your hands, especially handles, buttons and switches.  Do not touch the face - eyes, nose, and mouth.  Touch surrounding objects as little as possible.
  •  Try to keep a distance with other people.  If possible, choose a way of traveling to be less in contact with anyone.  Ideally, drive alone, so the risk is minimal.
  •  If you feel that you want to sneeze or cough, do it right - covering your mouth and nose with your elbow or disposable towel, which should immediately be thrown into a garbage container.
  •  Disinfect surfaces that people often touch, such as the armrests of seats in public transport, door handles in hotels, various buttons, and so on.
  • Do not eat or drink in public transport.  Although it is now believed that coronavirus cannot be transmitted through food, precaution will not hurt - in order to eat, you will need to remove the mask.  It is better to have a snack before you hit the road.
  •  Use contactless payments, for example, using your smartphone or a supporting card with NFC.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns that in buses, trains, and airplanes you will be in a limited space and may become infected if someone sitting 2 meters away has the virus.  Although, during air travel, the risk of inhaling infectious particles of COVID-19 is slightly reduced, since air is filtered on board.  But if a patient is near you, on-board filters are unlikely to help you.

funny-photos-of-people-protecting-themselves-from-coronavirus

According to WHO, traditional folk or home remedies can help to improve well-being and alleviate the symptoms of COVID-19, but there are still no drugs that can prevent or treat this disease.  Despite this, people, not understanding the seriousness of the situation, sometimes try to protect themselves with the help of extremely dubious substances.  For example, in India they try to defend themselves by consuming cow urine and using sprays based on it.  

 People are trying to sell amulets against coronavirus, medicinal tinctures or even honey with protection against all ailments, including COVID-19.  Fortunately, most often, such offers are quickly deleted by Internet sites, so as not to mislead users.  Only obvious jokes remain on the web.  Here are some fun examples from Twitter.
