It is a term that has gained significant attention during the current pandemic, as it is being used to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Quarantine helps to limit the transmission of the virus by keeping potentially infected individuals away from others until it is deemed safe for them to interact. This measure is crucial in controlling the spread of infectious diseases and protecting public health.

It can be transmitted through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes, releasing respiratory droplets that can be inhaled by others. It can also spread through personal contact, such as shaking hands or close proximity to an infected person. Additionally, the virus can survive on contaminated objects and surfaces, allowing it to be transmitted when a person touches their face after touching the contaminated object. Therefore, all of these methods contribute to the spread of the coronavirus.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because washing hands often, wearing a face mask, and avoiding contact with sick people are all effective preventive measures to keep oneself away from the coronavirus. Washing hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds helps to eliminate any potential virus on the hands. Wearing a face mask can help to prevent the inhalation or transmission of the virus through respiratory droplets. Avoiding contact with sick people reduces the risk of coming into contact with the virus. By following all of these measures, one can significantly reduce the chances of contracting the coronavirus.

    From where the corona virus got it's name?

    • A.

      Due to their crown-like projection

    • B.

      Due to their leaf-like projection

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Due to their crown-like projection
    Explanation
    The corona virus got its name due to its crown-like projection. This is because when the virus is viewed under a microscope, the surface structure of the virus appears to have small spikes that resemble a crown or corona. These spikes are actually proteins that help the virus attach to and enter host cells. Therefore, the name "corona" was given to this type of virus based on its distinctive appearance.

    What is coronavirus?

    • A.

      It is a large family of virus

    • B.

      It belongs to the family of Nidovirus

    • C.

      Both A & B are correct

    • D.

      Only A is correct

    Correct Answer
    C. Both A & B are correct
    Explanation
    Both options A and B are correct because coronavirus is indeed a large family of viruses and it belongs to the family of Nidovirus. The term "coronavirus" refers to a group of viruses that have crown-like spikes on their surfaces, hence the name "corona" meaning crown. These viruses can cause illnesses ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). Nidovirus is a classification of viruses that includes coronaviruses as well as other virus families. Therefore, both statements accurately describe what coronavirus is.
