Protect Yourself and Your Loved Ones from Coronavirus Tampa,  Florida
Elderly Abuse Tampa Fl

Coronavirus is the topic on everyone’s minds, and for good reason. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that can cause everything from the common cold to more severe diseases such as MERS and SARS. The current coronavirus is named COVID-19, and was first identified in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. It has since moved to other parts of Asia, Europe, the Middle East and has made its way to the United States. Studies are currently being conducted to discover the origin of this strain of coronavirus.

Symptoms of COVID-19

Symptoms of COVID-19 appear within 14 days of exposure. The symptoms include:

  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Shortness of breath

Most cases of COVID-19 are mild and those diagnosed make a full recovery. In extremely rare cases, COVID-19 can lead to severe respiratory problems, kidney failure or death. The chances of more extreme reaction to COVID-19 tends to appear in those with compromised immune systems and among the elderly.

Ways to Stay Safe

Now that we understand what COVID-19 is, how can we protect ourselves? Here are some tips to protect yourself and your loved ones from COVID-19.

  • Keep your hands clean. Regular hand washing is the most important protection against contracting coronavirus. Wet your hands with clean running water and use soap. Lather for at least 20 seconds. Dry with a clean towel or let them air dry. Keep a container of hand sanitizer close by, but make sure it contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth. Hands touch surfaces and deposit viruses. If you touch a contaminated surface and then touch your eyes, nose or mouth without washing your hands, your chances of contracting a virus are higher.
  • Keep distance from ill people. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends you stay at least six feet away from anyone exhibiting flu or cold-like symptoms. This will protect you from droplets released through a cough or sneeze.
  • Stay home if you are ill. If you are experiencing any symptoms yourself, stay home and away from others.
  • Stock up on supplies. Stock a 30-day supply of prescriptions and household items such as laundry detergent or baby items. Have cold medicines and pain reliever on hand as well.
  • Clean your stuff. Use an alcohol-based disinfectant to clean all hard surfaces in your home, including cell phones and other electronic devices.
  • Seek medical care. If you develop a fever or cough, or have difficulty breathing, seek medical treatment and discuss with your doctor if you have traveled to a region where COVID-19 is present.

The most important thing to remember about COVID-19 is that you can protect yourself. The rise in news and social media reports can cause stress, and they can spread fear rapidly. By practicing the above steps and remaining vigilant in precautions, you can avoid this virus and protect your family as well. Make sure to follow a credible source, such as the World Health Organization, to provide you with the most accurate information concerning this virus.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
