How the Covid 19 virus spreads
Covid-19 is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which spreads when an infected person is in close contact with another person. The virus can spread from an infected person’s mouth or nose in small liquid particles when they cough, sneeze, speak or breathe. These liquid particles are of different sizes, ranging from larger ‘respiratory droplets’ to smaller ‘aerosols’.
- Larger droplets are visible and fall out of the air rapidly within a few seconds or minutes while close to the source.
- Smaller droplets and particles (formed when small droplets dry very quickly in the airstream) can remain suspended for several minutes to even hours and can travel far from the source through air currents.
The government has begun registration for vaccination against Covid-19 for those aged above 18 on the CoWIN platform and Aarogya Setu App from April 28.
However, several states, including Karnataka, have said they do not have stocks to start the third phase of the vaccination drive.
How to register for vaccination
Step 1: On the Co WIN website (cowin.gov.in), enter your mobile phone and Adhaar number and wait for the OneTime Password (OTP).
Step 2: Enter the OTP. Fill in details that include Name, Date of Birth, a government Photo ID, etc. Ensure no errors at this stage. Aadhaar Card, Voter ID, Passport, Driving License, and PAN Card are some of the key documents that can be used.
Step 3: Choose a vaccination centre. It can be either a private or a government entity.
Step 4: Select the date and time. Sometimes, if you can’t find the required slot, check for subsequent days or choose a different vaccination centre.
Step 5: An appointment confirmation letter will be generated, carry that, and a Photo ID (physical copy) to the vaccination center at the designated time and date.
