New York : Why do people catch colds despite being quarantined

New York :

Despite all the provisions that are taken and follow the security measures to avoid Covid-19, there are people who end up contracting a common cold.

It must be taken into account that, as Consumer Reports points out, there are hundreds of viruses that are capable of causing a cold, although it is true that the coronavirus that produces Covid-19 is highly contagious, it is not the only one.

That is why it is normal that, despite the measures taken, especially in winter, it is possible to catch a cold.

It is not a single virus

This implies that, although we avoid coming into contact with someone who has Covid-19, it is possible that we will come into contact with someone who has some other virus. This, of course, creates alarms, since we live in such anxiety for fear of getting sick.

This is not to say that we have been negligent in our care. It is typical that we get a common cold, especially in the winter time. But due to the pandemic, any sneeze can put us on alert.

In fact, as stated by Dr. Catherine Troisi, who is an infectious disease epidemiologist at the UTHealth School of Public Health in Houston, you are more likely to come into contact with someone who has the flu than someone who has Covid-19.

There are more than 200 pathogens that can cause colds, and that makes it impossible for us to avoid them all, no matter how much we take care of ourselves.

Unlike the Coronavirus that causes Covid-19, there are germs that are more resistant and can live longer on surfaces.

Because the coronavirus has a lipid membrane, it does not survive for long on surfaces. Hence specialists focus more on the use of masks and hand washing.

However, rhinoviruses can last up to 24 hours or more on surfaces, and have a better chance of surviving disinfectants and other types of solvents. As much as we want to protect ourselves, we will always be exposed.

We are vulnerable

With all the caution that we can exercise, we must remember that we are vulnerable, and that in some negligence we may get sick with the flu.

If this happens, do not be alarmed. It is necessary to follow medical protocol and remain calm. By ruling out, it is better to have the Covid-19 test if similar symptoms occur.

We must continue to take the measures that work: maintain social distance, wash our hands and wear masks. It is also advisable to get vaccinated against influenza.

It is important to keep closed spaces ventilated and avoid having meetings at home. Furthermore, the vaccination process has already begun, and we must wait for our turn to come. Meanwhile, we must follow the recommendations offered by the health authorities.

Another thing that will help reduce the impact of colds is to strengthen our immune system. It is not enough with the precautionary measures, we must also consume foods that contain the necessary vitamins that strengthen our immune system.
