      This is not made for spam intention... I am a doctor with medical degree MD gener medicine and I would like to mention the reason i weote this article ...

      Recently one peculiar symptom came out as a interesting differentiator for the COVID vs other flus... That is, loss of smell and taste and that's the basic idea...

      If you want you can remove the refernce links too.

    Hi. You should add a bio to your article so that people can quickly see that you are a medical doctor. You should also update the global number of deaths from COVID-19, since it's significantly higher than on March 7th.

    I’m not a doctor, but based on what I am hearing where I live there seems to be an important point missing from the prevention tips in your article. Though you do say that people should stay home if they are sick, we are being told that people can have the COVID-19 virus in their body for some time without symptoms appearing. In some cases, an infected person develops very mild symptoms or may not even realize that they are infected by the virus. 

    The provincial health officer here is a medical doctor. She and other doctors in North America and Europe are saying that a very important step in preventing the spread of a COVID-19 infection in a community is social distancing. We are currently supposed to stay six feet away from other people when we leave our home whenever this distance is possible, even if we appear to be healthy. We are being instructed to avoid crowds and groups of people. According to the news here, social distancing is important in order to avoid being infected ourselves and to avoid passing the virus to someone else, especially someone who may experience more serious effects than us or who may pass it to a more susceptible person.

    I know that prevention is not the primary topic of your article. Since you do give prevention tips for the disease, however, I think you should consider mentioning that people should use social distancing as much as possible when the local authorities recommend it for their community.

    i will add the bio of mine

    but covering every information cant be updated in the single article and if you want i can contribute in another article -

    also if you feel this is worth sharing here - even after good research - I am ready to delete here and publish in my blog - reason is that i covered some important information that is not covered or gathered in  most of the references.

    thank you

      And that's the problem. You are covering a situation that is changing daily, hour-by-hour even. HubPages wants you to write material that will be relevant in 12 - 36 months. It's not a news site.

      In any case, if people want up-to-date info on the coronavirus, they are going to go to reliable news sources, government websites, or medical sites with reliable information. In the UK, we'd say you're 'on a hiding to nothing' trying to cover this topic. In other words, it's not going to work.

        this is not going to change daily and if you are a medical person you would understand that -

        these are symptoms which are constant - ok - daily lot of info is being piled up and poeple are confused and thats the reason i took some time to make a simple and clarity post on the symptoms and differences.

        the dynamic content is protocols on preventive measures and treatment - which as a medical person shouldnt be covered - except for a authentic health sites

        if you say still no I shall remove the content - why should there be no interest to a post written for some purpose

          This has already changed: "If you are sick, you should stay at home to prevent the spread of infection and to protect yourself from other infections that could be harbored from the environment."
          It should read "If you are going to be sick within the next 13 days you should stay at home to prevent the spread of infection." Of course no one knows if they will be sick in the next 13 days.
          theraggededge does not need a medical background to understand that.

          You said, "but covering every information cant be updated in the single article".


          I thought I explained why there is unlikely to be much interest - because there are more authoritative sources available.

          It's your content and you must do what you see fit with it.
