Although there are only 151 confirmed cases in Brazil (on 03/13/2020), it is inevitable that the number of infected people will increase in the coming days. It is worth considering that the onset of symptoms takes 2 to 14 days to appear, so it is likely that the numbers will increase before decreasing. That is why having some sites on hand to monitor the coronavirus is important.
The virus is highly contagious, although not lethal. Still, it is important to note that contagion in the elderly and people with low immunity can prove fatal, so it is also crucial to take care not only to prevent infection, but also to infect your loved ones.
Another danger is similar to the spread of fake news, with unnecessary information and alarmism regarding COVID-19.
While staying alert is necessary in such situations as this, it is important not to panic and to prevent the increase in future cases.
In addition, seeking information from trusted sources is also paramount to know how to prevent and fight the virus, if necessary.
To help you with this task, we have put together some sites to follow the coronavirus. In them, you will find prevention information, updates on its spread in the country and in the world and what to do if you are suspicious of the disease.
So, stay with us for the next few paragraphs and save these sites to your favorites!
