The reason why viruses are subtle is because of their small size, they are 100 times smaller than the average bacterium. Viruses can only exert influence by invading a cell because they’re not cellular structures.
The human body does have some natural defenses against a virus. A cell can initiate RNA interference when it detects viral infection, which works by decreasing the influence of the virus’s genetic material to the cell’s usual material. The immune system also kicks into gear when it identifies a virus by producing antibodies that bind to the virus and render it unable to replicate. However, some viral infections outpace the immune system. Viruses can evolve much more quickly than the immune system can, which gives them a leg up in uninterrupted reproduction.
However, it’s important to remember that during an outbreak two factors play a pivotal role in containing the spreading of the virus. The first one, being conscious citizens, which means limiting our social life. Avoiding body contact with other people and wearing the mask when you are in crowded places. And secondly, personal hygiene such as washing hands with plain soap and plain water kills viruses, but only if it’s done thoroughly and often. Hands should be scrubbed for at least 20 seconds. If you don’t have plain soap at hand, you can always use hand sanitizers if they contain at least 60% alcohol, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Don’t touch your face because germs can get into the body through the eyes, nose, and mouth. Contaminated hands can transfer the virus when people rub their eyes, scratch their noses, or touch their mouths.
Having said that, due to the global situation NAIPO decided to actively contribute, by launching 2020 HPP ( Health Protection Program ).
