Pandemics Are Often Controlled with the Right Measures
Mankind has experienced some alarming pandemics in the last two decades like SARS and H1N1. The acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus (SARSr-CoV) caused the 2002–2004 SARS outbreak. It was first detected in Guangdong, China and ultimately spread to 29 different countries, killing 774 people. It hit Toronto in late February of 2003 and infected people at the Scarborough Grace Hospital and the North York General Hospital. In large part due to the braveness of the city’s frontline health workers, SARS was controlled in the city by the end of 2003.
On the other hand, the H1N1 influenza virus was first detected in the United States in the spring of 2009 and rapidly spread across the world, eventually infecting billions. It’s estimated that hundreds of thousands of people have been killed by the swine flu pandemic.
However, neither SARS nor H1N1 were as threatening as COVID-19 is today. Even though the H1N1 swine flu was highly contagious, it ultimately was no worse than a seasonal flu.
And while SARS had a much higher global case-fatality ratio than COVID-19 at 11%, the symptoms were far more pronounced. With COVID-19, many people carrying the disease are asymptomatic. This makes COVID-19 harder to contain.
Because COVID-19 is so infectious, it’s crucial to follow the correct protocols as outlined by the World Health Organization (WHO).
- Regularly clean your hands using soap and water or an alcohol-based hand cleaning agent
- Keep a safe distance from anyone who is coughing or sneezing
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth unless your hands have been recently cleaned
- Cough or sneeze into a bent elbow or tissue
- If you experience symptoms such as a fever, cough, breathing issues, then seek medical attention
- Follow directions from your local health authority
In addition, many global authorities recommend that you stay at home as much as possible to maintain social distancing and wear a mask when you must leave. Until a vaccine is readied, these measures will help control and eventually contain the disease.
Of course, working from home is a luxury that people in the medical community do not have. That’s where we come in. We help transport hazardous materials that need to be moved urgently for medical facilities such as blood samples, contaminated equipment, chemicals, and even samples of COVID-19. You can gain peace of mind with your radioactive medical deliveries with the knowledge that we have Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) training and licensing. This makes us adept at loading, unloading, packing, or unpacking potentially hazardous goods like those used by the medical community.
Likewise, you can effortlessly track your delivery anytime with our technology on our platform. R Courier is equipped with a state-of-the-art GPS system that provides you with precise reports. This is information such as a replay of the driver route, activity report and more. Customers with large volumes have direct access to track any of the drivers at any moment through the web login.
With COVID-19 placing the health care system under pressure, your medical facility needs an experienced, trained, and certified medical courier service like ours, that has the expertise to transport your important items safely, quickly, and responsibly.
