QUIZ: How Much Do You Really Know About COVID-19?1 min read
It has been more than three months since a State of Public Health Emergency was declared in the country. And yet, up until now, some things remain unclear around the true nature of COVID-19: Does the coronavirus attack just the lungs or the whole body? How long does the virus really survive on surfaces? Why don’t some infected people exhibit symptoms? The most pressing question of them all, of course, is: When will a vaccine ever be discovered?
Quite thankfully, there are also things that are crystal clear at this point—COVID-19 facts and figures that are published on the websites and materials circulated by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Department of Health (DOH), and other health authorities worldwide.
The easing of the lockdowns will, for sure, send more people out of their homes and into the streets. You’re only better off going about with your normal way of life—little by little—if you’re armed with enough information about the coronavirus and the disease it causes.
So here’s a quiz to help you gauge exactly that. Mind that all the correct answers provided here are vetted and were lifted from official health and government websites. Take this and use your score as a guide on whether or not you’re ready for the General Community Quarantine—or whatever comes after that.
How did you fare? If you got a perfect score, congratulations—it seems you’re pretty much clued up! If not, then you may have some serious COVID-19-catching up to do. Don’t worry, you can retake this quiz for as often as you want. You may even share this with your friends and family if you like. For now, stay safe and stay informed!
