How can we help?

Information Letter

Dear tenants,

the increased incidence of the coronavirus in Europe and the current media coverage raise many questions that will certainly keep you busy. We would like to take this as an opportunity to give you some tips on how to stay healthy.

What are coronaviruses?
Coronaviruses can infect both humans and various animals, including birds and mammals. Coronaviruses cause various diseases in humans, from common colds to dangerously debilitating diseases.

How is the virus transmitted?
The novel coronavirus is transmissible from person to person. Cases have also been reported in people who have been infected by people who have shown only mild or non-specific symptoms. The novel coronavirus primarily causes respiratory (respiratory) diseases. As with other coronaviruses, transmission – according to current knowledge – occurs primarily via respiratory secretions. The novel coronaviruses have also been found in stool samples of some patients.

How long is the incubation period?
Currently, it is assumed that the incubation period is up to 14 days.

What symptoms are triggered?
An infection with the novel coronavirus can lead to symptoms such as coughing, colds, neck scratches and fever, and some sufferers also suffer from diarrhoea. In some patients, the virus seems to be associated with a more severe course, leading to respiratory problems and pneumonia. Severe courses have so far occurred mainly in patients who were older and/or previously suffered from underlying chronic diseases.

How can one protect oneself from infection?
As with influenza and other infections, coughing and sneezing etiquette, good hand hygiene and distance from the sick (approx. 1 to 2 metres) also protect against transmission of the new coronavirus. These measures are also advisable everywhere and at all times in view of the wave of influenza.

Does it make sense to wear a mouthguard?
The most important and effective measures for personal protection as well as for the protection of other persons from infection with pathogens are good hand hygiene, correct coughing etiquette and keeping a minimum distance (approx. 1 to 2 metres) from persons suspected of being ill. If a person suffering from an acute infection has to move around in public places, wearing a mouth and nose protection (e.g. a surgical mouthguard) can be useful.

Is there a vaccination protection?
No vaccine is currently available. In China, according to media reports, a first vaccine candidate will be tested in a clinical trial from the end of April 2020. It is currently not possible to predict when a vaccine might be available.

Where can I get objective and reliable information?
Information from WHO, Robert Koch Institute and the BZgA on the corona virus:

Many health insurance companies also offer advisory hotlines for their policyholders. Furthermore, the health authorities of the respective communities are available as competent contact persons.

Stay healthy, your YOUNIQ team
