Covid-19 Crisis

As the Corona Virus Pandemic develops, more people than ever may need help and this situation presents a huge additional pressure on already overstreched resources.

Shree Visa Oshwal Community Nairobi and Oshwal Education & Relief Board, are embarking on fulfilling the Jain Principle of SEVA (helping the needy). To achieve this, we want to support and help the vulnerable in our Kenyan Community as they have no source of income, food, shelter etc, in these unprecented times.

Our collective effort will make a big difference in supporting the vulnerable. We appeal to all members to join hands with VOC in this noble task of SEVA.

General Information about COVID-19

1. Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID19) is a new respiratory illness that can easily be spread from person to person.

2. COVID-19 is spread through contact with droplets produced by a person who is sneezing or coughing or contaminated surfaces or objects.
3. COVID-19 can cause severe symptoms like fever, cough, headache, body aches and difficulty in breathing.
4. COVID-19 is preventable through;
Washing your hands with soap and running water or using an alcohol based hand sanitizer,
– Keeping a social distance of at least 2 metres or 2-3 steps from people with flu-like symptoms.
– Avoiding shaking hands, hugging or kissing with people with flu-like symptoms.
– Staying at home and avoiding travel when you have flu-like symptoms.
5. Early detection and treatment can contribute greatly to survival of the patient.
6. COVID 2019 cannot be transmitted through air.

Wash your hands frequently

Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.

Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.

Maintain social distancing

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth

Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.

Practice respiratory hygiene

Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.

Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.
