If you’ve turned on the news lately, you’ve no doubt seen massive and ongoing coverage of the Coronavirus (aka COVID-19).
The bad news: Unfortunately, there are currently no vaccines available to protect people against human Coronavirus infection.
The good news: most people with common Coronavirus illness will recover on their own.
- Symptoms can be relieved with pain and fever medications (though Aspirin should not be given to children.)
- A room humidifier or hot shower can help ease a sore throat and cough
IMPORTANT: As always, it’s important to get a professional opinion, especially when it comes to children, the elderly, and people with compromised immune systems.
A HealthSapiens Medical Plan subscription enables members to speak with a doctor immediately to get a professional opinion and sound medical advice…all from the comfort of home. Considering a one-month subscription for a family of up to seven is less than $1/day, it beats the cost of an Urgent Care or Emergency Room visit (which can cost hundreds of dollars or more.)
While it’s too early to tell when Coronavirus will be out of the limelight, one thing is for sure: it’s important to be educated, prepared, and level-headed.
If you are at all worried about heading to Urgent Care or the Emergency Room and being exposed to possible carriers, sign up today for a HealthSapiens Medical Plan subscription. Speak with a doctor in minutes to get a professional opinion and (if necessary) a prescription sent to your preferred local pharmacy.
