A 65-year-old female asked:
Social distancing: Most infections are not severe, although many patients with COVID-19 have critical illness. Most of the fatal cases have occurred in patients with advanced age or underlying medical comorbidities. Preventive measures include hand washing, respiratory hygiene (cover cough), avoid touching your face, avoid crowds, cleaning and disinfecting objects and surfaces that are frequently touched.
A 59-year-old male asked:
Social distancing: The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person (close contact and respiratory droplets). Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic individuals can also transmit the disease. It is better to practice social distancing for the next month.
A 31-year-old male asked:
Anosmia: Impaired olfactory function is a frequent patient complaint. Nasal and paranasal sinus disease (sinusitis and nasal polyps) and post-viral upper respiratory infections are the most commonly causes. Some drugs (cocaine), medications (blood pressure meds) and supplements (zinc) can also cause a lost sense of smell.
