ALL ABOUT CORONAVIRUS: THE SIMPLE DEFINITION, THE OUTBREAK, SYMPTOMS, AND CURE!

IG @ogefashblog.

It is appalling how people are taking this coronavirus lightly, especially some African countries who think they are immune to this Coronavirus. I have heard some people say “Oh, it can’t survive in Africa, because the weather is hot”; I laugh in Spanish!

The virus is not only surviving in Africa but is also killing those infected with the virus. Infact, the reported number of death by coronavirus has so increased that has made people sit up and take the matter seriously.

Those that have even turned this “Coronavirus” issue to comedy business are now realizing how deadly the virus is…

WHAT IS CORONA VIRUS

Coronavirus is a virus found only in animals but transferrable to any human that has contact with such an infected animal. It is however passed on from one human to another. Coronavirus otherwise known as COVID-19 is no respecter of a country or its weather;  as it can be passed on to any country, whether with hot or humid weather.

The virus broke out in China; it came from a seafood and meat market in Wuhan, China. The development period lasts up to 5-24 days.

HOW IT SPREADS/HOW YOU CAN GET INFECTED

  • When you inhale, gasp or breathe in that “drop” which was coughed out into the air by an infected person.
  • When you touch the surface an infected person has touched and you place it in your mouth, nose, eyes and so on

HOW TO STAY FREE FROM THE CORONA-VIRUS

  • Avoid large gathering
  • Home Isolation

And if you must go out…

  • Wash your hand regularly and properly before and after any activity with soap
  • Cough and sneeze into tissues, upper sleeve or elbow
  • Don’t touch your face with an unwashed hand
  • Avoid close contact with an infected person
  • Use an alcohol-based sanitizer

SYMPTOMS

  • Breathing difficulties
  • High Fever
  • Dry Cough

THE CURE

They are still working on the cure!

Ogefash's Styl

She is a writer of several short stories some of which have been published in the magazines.

Her novel "Looming Danger" published in December 2015, was highly recommended by people. She has worked with several media outlets some of which are Spur Magazine and Upcoming Magazine. She is an educationist. With her love for children, she took up the task of supervising and taking care of children at the After School Department of Heritage School before her resignation.

She is a seasoned writer and very passionate about her work. Interestingly, her blog is the first in Nigeria to start reviewing Nigerian and foreign movies and also write the movies' plots scene by scene. Ogefash blog is also the first to translate songs, interprete and give a full detailed analysis about music and artistes in Nigeria, Africa and America before other blogs started emulating her style. While other blogs provided just music lyrics alone, we took it higher by not only providing lyrics, but translating, interpreting and analyzing as well. It is also the first blog to give detailed analysis of adverts. Interestingly, Ogefash blog also known as Ogefash Photo Blog is the first blog all over the world to blog with lots of interesting pictures to support all articles. Ogefash says "I don't keep male friends because they always say "sex" is part of friendship. I don't keep female friends because they are always bitchy. I only keep people I can call more than a friend!" Ogefash has an affinity for TV reality shows. In 2018, she represented Nigeria in the PanAfrican TV reality game show "The Maltavator Challenge" powered by Nigeria's number one malt drink packed full of energy giving vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6;Malta Guinness. The show brought together four African countries Nigeria, Ghana, Ethiopia and Coted'ivoire who competed for the grand prize of 20,000 dollars.
