What you need to know about the coronavirus outbreak in Australia
Posted On July 26, 2021
On Sunday, coronaviruses hit Australia, killing an estimated 11,000 people and sickening more than 10,000 others.
Here are some things to know before you head to the polls.
Who is at risk?
About 1.2 million people are now considered at risk of catching the virus, with the figure likely to rise as coronaviral symptoms develop.
In many parts of the country, the majority of those who have been exposed have been already exposed and are at higher risk.
People who are not yet exposed are more likely to be exposed in the long term.
The coronavis are spread through direct contact with infected people.
Symptoms include fever, cough and sore throat, but more serious illnesses can include loss of consciousness, muscle weakness, difficulty breathing, and convulsions.
Some people have died of the virus.
The outbreak is spreading rapidly across the country.
The death toll is expected to rise this week.
It is unclear how many people are actually infected and how many have died from the coronas.
How to protect yourself: There are several ways you can help protect yourself and others from the virus: Drink lots of water: The virus can make people dehydrated, so drinking water or drinking fluids that contain water that’s not fresh, such as juice or tea, can help to keep you hydrated.
Make sure you have plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as a daily supply of vitamins and minerals.
Avoid fruit, vegetables and whole grains: These can be high in calories and sugar, and can make you feel thirsty and hungry.
Drink plenty of water, and avoid alcohol.
