It can be scary to hear about a disease outbreak, but learning the facts can help ease your mind. A new coronavirus—a type of virus named for its crown-like shape—emerged in Wuhan, China in 2019, and then spread to people around the world. While the most severe cases often dominate the headlines, they’re not the whole story. Most coronavirus cases have been mild, and healthy bodies can fight off the infection on their own.

Poison Prevention Month
Poisonings can happen quickly. Parents should take extra care to make sure all poisons and medicines in the household are out of children’s reach. To illustrate the seriousness of poison in the home, review these facts:
FACT: Anything can be poisonous in excessive amounts.
Medications taken in their proper dose can be helpful, but an overdose can cause serious illness or death. Vitamins and minerals are essential to good health, but too many may be toxic. Anything can be dangerous if excess amounts are taken — even water!
FACT: We use poisons every day.
Approximately 400 potentially toxic substances enter the average home each year. Household products become potentially harmful when splashed in the eye, in the mouth or on the skin.
FACT: Some people are more at risk than others.
Toddlers aren’t aware of all the things that can hurt them. They explore their world by putting things into their mouths. They will even eat things that taste and smell bad.
