Frozen Food Packaging Contaminated with Corona Virus is Called to Cause Infection

KOMPAS.com – Disease Control Authority China mention, if someone holds or comes in contact with the packaging frozen food contaminated by corona virus, can cause infection.

Launch Reuters, Sunday (18/10/2020), Center for Disease Control and Prevention ( CDCChina detected and isolated a live corona virus on the outer packaging of frozen food in an effort to track the Covid-19 outbreak last week in the city of Qingdao, China.

According to the CDC, the discovery is the first in the world regarding the potential for the virus to be transmitted through frozen goods.

This detection was carried out because two dock workers in Qingdao who were initially diagnosed as infected without symptoms brought the virus to a hospital in China in September 2020.

Due to insufficient disinfection and protection systems, the two workers passed it on to the hospital staff.

Early on transmission

However, the CDC’s statement that the two workers may have contracted the coronavirus from frozen food packaging shows no solid evidence.

A virologist at the University of Hong Kong, Professor Jin Dong Yan, meduga, the two workers contracted the virus from elsewhere and then contaminated the food packaging they were handling.

The CDC acknowledged that no cases were found of consumers who had contact with frozen food packaging. The risk of transmission is considered very low.

However, the CDC recommends that workers handling, processing, and selling frozen products should avoid direct skin contact with products that may be contaminated with the virus.

In addition, staff should not touch their mouths or noses before removing work clothes that may be contaminated.

The CDC added that they must carry out regular testing of the corona virus to find out whether they are safe for work or not.

Live viruses can infect

Prior to these findings, the CDC said genetic traces of the virus had been found in some samples taken from frozen food or food packaging, but virus counts were low and no live virus had been isolated.

Jin said, only live viruses can infect people.

Meanwhile, a sample containing dead virus can also be tested which shows a positive result for traces of the virus.

Not only did it happen in Qingdao, cases of the discovery of the corona virus in frozen food were also experienced in three cities in China, namely Dalian, Xiamen and Pingxiang.

Reporting from NBC, 13 August 2020, these three cities have reported the detection of the corona virus in imported frozen food for the fourth consecutive day.

This information then became a new concern that the shipment of contaminated food could lead to new outbreaks.

Health officials in the southeastern city of Shenzhen said a surface sample of frozen chicken wings from Brazil had tested positive for the virus.

The virus was detected as part of routine checks carried out on meat and seafood imports since June, after an outbreak in Beijing linked to a major wholesale food market.

The Shenzhen Municipal Health Commission said it was tracking and testing everyone who may have had contact with the potentially contaminated food product, and all the results were negative.

For this incident, the commission then appealed to local residents to be careful in buying imported frozen meat and liquid products in the last few days.

Pay attention to BMI to reduce the risk of Covid-19 due to obesity

KOMPAS.com- Obesity can be said to be a common and serious chronic disease that makes people overweight.

However, obesity it can actually put people at increased risk of many serious chronic diseases, it can even increase the risk Covid-19 the severe one.

As reported from CDC, Wednesday (8/10/2020), overweight adults are at greater risk of contracting Covid-19 during the current pandemic.

Obesity is often associated with impaired immune function, then there is a potential for decreased lung capacity and making the functioning of the respiratory organs more difficult.

In conclusion, having obesity can double the risk of hospitalization due to Covid-19 infection.

Saat body mass index ( BMI) increased, risk death due to Covid-19 also increased. BMI is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the height squared in meters.

Although BMI does not measure body fat directly, BMI is moderately correlated with the more direct measurements of body fat.

Research has shown that obesity can be associated with a lower vaccine response to various diseases (influenza6, Hepatitis B7,8,9, tetanus10).

Also read: Why Is Covid-19 More Deadly To People Who Are Obese?

If you want to find out your weight is normal or obese. Here’s how to calculate your weight.

Suppose you weigh 50 kilograms and are 1.5 m (150 cm) in height. First, multiply your height in squares: 1.5 x 1.5 = 2.25. Next, divide your weight number by the square of your height: 50 / 2.25 = 22.2.

The final step is to compare the BMI figure (22.2) with the weight category listed below:

  • Below 18.5 = Weight loss
  • 18.5 – 24.9 = Normal weight
  • 25 – 29.9 = excess body weight (obesity tendency)
  • 30 and above = obesity

That way, your BMI, aka your body mass index, indicates that you are a normal weight, but there is a possibility that you are overweight but are not yet obese.

So, what can be done to overcome obesity?

Obesity is a complex disease with many causes. Environmental design, access to healthy and affordable food and drink, and access to safe and comfortable places for physical activity can all contribute to obesity.

The obesity gap underscores the need to address social determinants of health such as poverty, education and housing to remove health barriers.

It will take action at the policy and systems level to ensure that obesity prevention and management can be started early, and that everyone has access to good nutrition and a safe place to be physically active.

Policy-makers and community leaders must work to ensure that their communities, environments and systems support healthy and active lifestyles for all.

It can be said that lifestyle changes will be very helpful but change does take time, just as weight loss takes a long time.

In addition to the steps everyone should take to slow the spread of Covid-19, obese people can also help protect themselves and their families during this pandemic.

You do this by eating healthy foods, being active, getting enough sleep and being able to manage stress properly.

The obesity epidemic could affect the severity of the Covid-19 pandemic. Given the added risk associated with this disease is very high, it is important to support all individuals to lead healthy, active lives.

Site Updates That Make Stupid

Before it was removed, there were some horrendous changes in the guidelines for the spread of Covid-19 by the CDC which were uploaded on 18 September 2020 and can still be accessed until 21 September 2020.

What sparked the most attention was the statement that the SARS-CoV-2 corona virus was classified as an airborne virus, so it “is one of the most contagious and easily spread strains”.

The CDC said that Covid-19 spreads through droplets or small particles, such as aerosols, which are produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, sings, talks, or breathes.

“These particles can be inhaled through the nose, mouth, respiratory tract and lungs, and cause infection. This is considered the main route of spread of the virus,” added the CDC.

“The virus that causes Covid-19 appears to be spreading more efficiently than influenza, although not as efficiently as measles, which is highly contagious,” continued the CDC statement in the false statement.

Pregnant Women Positive Covid-19 at High Risk of Prematurity

Jakarta, CNN Indonesia –

A recent study by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) find infected pregnant women Covid-19 who are symptomatic or hospitalized are at high risk of giving birth baby prematurely.

“In this study, preterm births occurred in symptomatic pregnant women roughly three times higher than in those without,” wrote the CDC researchers in the study. CNN.

Premature birth is an early birth that occurs before the 37th week of gestation. Being born prematurely has the risk of giving babies complications such as immature organs and slow weight gain.

The study analyzed 598 pregnant women with Covid-19 who were hospitalized between March 1 and August 22 in 13 states in the US.

More than half of pregnant women with Covid-19 or around 54.5 percent did not show symptoms when they were hospitalized. Among symptomatic pregnant women, 16.2 percent experienced intensive care in the ICU, 8.5 percent required invasive mechanical ventilation and two pregnant women or 0.7 percent died. There were no asymptomatic pregnant women who needed intensive care or died.

The CDC’s findings show that as many as 12.6 percent of pregnant women with Covid-19 who were hospitalized gave birth prematurely. This figure is significantly higher than the 10 percent of preterm births in the general population in the United States in 2018.

As many as 23.1 percent of pregnant women infected with Covid-19 have symptoms of premature birth. Meanwhile, in asymptomatic pregnant women, preterm birth occurred as much as 8 percent.

Among these births, two newborn babies died while in hospital. Both were born to symptomatic pregnant women who required invasive treatment.

Researchers suggest that pregnant women and also doctors who treat be more aware of the risks that will be faced at birth.

“Pregnant women and health care providers should be aware of the potential risk of severe Covid-19, including adverse pregnancy outcomes,” write the investigators.

Previously, research published in medical journals BMJ also found that pregnant women with Covid-19 were at risk of giving birth prematurely, albeit not high.

“While the overall risk of pregnant women from coronavirus is low, the findings of this study highlight the specific risks for pregnant women,” said the president of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Edward Morris, in a statement at the time.

Pregnant women are included in the list of people at risk so they must continue to take precautionary measures from the corona virus by wearing masks, maintaining fingers and washing hands.

U.S. CDC takes down coronavirus airborne transmission guidance

(Reuters) – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Monday took down its guidance warning on possible airborne transmission of the novel coronavirus, saying that the draft recommendation was posted in error.

The now-withdrawn guidance, posted on the agency’s website on Friday, recommended that people use air purifiers to reduce airborne germs indoors to avoid the disease from spreading.

“CDC is currently updating its recommendations regarding airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2. Once this process has been completed, the update language will be posted,” the agency said.

The CDC did not immediately respond to Reuters request for comment on when the guidance will be updated.

The health agency had said that COVID-19 could spread through airborne particles that can remain suspended in the air and travel beyond six feet.

Presently, the agency’s guidance says the virus mainly spreads from person-to-person through respiratory droplets, which can land in the mouth or nose of people nearby. (bit.ly/2EknVZc)

Earlier this month, U.S. President Donald Trump took exception to comments from the CDC director, who said masks might be even more effective than a vaccine for the novel coronavirus that could be broadly rolled out in mid-2021.

That followed a New York Times report that guidance about novel coronavirus testing posted last month on the CDC’s website was not written by the agency’s scientists and was posted over their objections.

The World Health Organization has not changed its policy on aerosol transmission of the coronavirus, it said on Monday.

The agency still believes the disease is primarily spread through droplets, but that in enclosed crowded spaces with inadequate ventilation, aerosol transmission can occur, said Mike Ryan, executive director of the WHO’s emergencies program.

Do not neglect, pay attention to pet care procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic

PORTAL JEMBER- Corona viruses can cause flu-like diseases in humans, while this disease can also be found in strains animal certain, such as cows, camels, and bats.

Some coronaviruses, such as the corona virus in dogs and cats, only infect animal and does not infect humans.

Quoted from JEMBER PORTAL from CDC, The Center for Disease Control and Prevention is still studying about the virus that causes COVID-19, but it appears that this virus can spread from humans to animal in some situations.

A small number animal pets around the world, including cats and dogs, have been reported to be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, mostly after close contact with people infected with COVID-19.

Animal pets those who are infected may be sick or even have no symptoms. Animal pets most of the sick suffer only mild illness and then recover completely.

To CDC learn more about how this virus affects animal, treat it animal pets like treating other members of the human family to protect them from possible infection.

1. Because there is a risk that people with COVID-19 can spread the virus to animal, CDC advise the owner animal pets limit interactions animal pets with people outside the house.

2. Keep cats indoors if possible and don’t let them roam freely outside.

3. If you frequently walk the dog, walk the dog on a leash at least 2 meters from the other.

4. Avoid public places where large numbers of people gather.

5. Do not put a mask on animal pets. Masks can be dangerous animal pets.

6. There is no evidence that the virus can spread to humans from skin, hair, or hair animal pets.


7. Do not wipe or bathe animal pets with chemical disinfectants, alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, or other products, such as hand sanitizer, table cleaning wipes, or other industrial or surface cleaners.

8. Talk to your doctor animal if you have questions about suitable products for bathing or cleaning animal pets.

Elderly, Covid-19, and Flu Vaccines in the Middle of a Pandemic …

KOMPAS.com – In the midst of the corona pandemic, people aged 65 years and over are at high risk of experiencing serious complications as a result flu than healthy young adults.

Reporting from the official website United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ( CDC) (15/9/2020), this risk is partly due to changes in the immune system due to increasing age.

Although flu season varies in severity, people 65 and over bear the brunt of the flu.

Therefore, getting the flu vaccine in 2020-2021 is more important, especially in the midst of the corona pandemic.

Flu vaccination is very important for people aged 65 years and over, at this age most of them were hospitalized and died from flu and Covid-19 infections.

Flu vaccine

The best way to protect yourself from flu and potentially serious complications is with the flu vaccine.

The CDC recommends that nearly everyone aged 6 months and over get the seasonal flu vaccine every year at the end of October.

However, as long as the flu virus is circulating, vaccinations should be continued throughout the flu season, even through January or after.

The flu shot is especially important for people aged 65 and over because they are at high risk of serious complications from the flu.

The flu vaccine is updated seasonally as needed to keep up with changes in the virus.

In addition, this measure becomes important as the immune system weakens each year, so annual vaccinations are needed to ensure the best protection against the flu.

Currently, the flu vaccine for 2020-2021 has been updated from last season’s vaccine to better match the virus in circulation.

According to information from the CDC, immunity from vaccination is fully established after about two weeks.
