1.Can COVID-19 be spread through food?
Coronaviruses are generally thought to be spread from person-to-person through respiratory droplets. Currently, there is no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with food. Before preparing or eating food it is important to always wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds for general food safety. Throughout the day wash your hands after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing, or going to the bathroom.
It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
In general, because of poor survivability of these coronaviruses on surfaces, there is likely very low risk of spread from food products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient, refrigerated, or frozen temperatures.

2. Will warm weather stop the spread of COVID-19?It is not yet known whether weather and temperature impact the spread of COVID-19. Some other viruses, like the common cold and flu, spread more during cold weather months but that does not mean it is impossible to become sick with these viruses during other months.
At this time, it is not known whether the spread of COVID-19 will decrease when the weather becomes warmer.There is much more to learn about the transmissibility, severity, and other features associated with COVID-19 and investigations are ongoing.
3. Can herbal remedies and other drugs help treat the new virus?There is no specific medicine recommended to treat the new virus, according to WHO."However, those infected with the virus should receive appropriate care to relieve and treat symptoms, and those with severe illness should receive optimized supportive care," the agency said.
"Some specific treatments are under investigation and will be tested through clinical trials. WHO is helping to accelerate research and development efforts with a range of partners," it added.
4. Are antibiotics effective in treating the new coronavirus?Administering antibiotics does not help because they only work against bacteria, not viruses.CODVID 2019 is a virus.Some patients may have antibiotics administered to them in the hospital if a bacterial co-infection, which is possible in some cases, occurs.

5. Can a person test negative and later test positive for COVID-19?Using the CDC-developed diagnostic test, a negative result means that the virus that causes COVID-19 was not found in the person’s sample. In the early stages of infection, it is possible the virus will not be detected.
For COVID-19, a negative test result for a sample collected while a person has symptoms likely means that the COVID-19 virus is not causing their current illness.

6. Should I be concerned about pets and animals when it comes to COVID-19?
While this virus seems to have emerged from an animal source, it is now spreading from person-to-person in China. There is no reason to think that any animals including pets in the United States might be a source of infection with this new coronavirus.
To date, CDC has not received any reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19. At this time, there is no evidence that companion animals including pets can spread COVID-19. However, since animals can spread other diseases to people, it’s always a good idea to wash your hands after being around animals. For more information on the many benefits of pet ownership, as well as staying safe and healthy around animals including pets, livestock, and wildlife, visit CDC’s Healthy Pets, Healthy People website.
If you have the diseases, avoid contact with animals, humans and report yourself to the hospital.

Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV).
A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.
Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people.Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from dromedary camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans.
Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, an infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.
Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.

Gaming is one of the fun things we do with our mobile devices when we are less busy. We have some that are intense and some others we can play distractedly. We sometimes get interrupted during our gaming session by different notifications and calls from people and it could honestly be annoying. We sometimes get poor gaming results due to the distractions of multiple notifications.
Well, you no longer need to bother about that on your HiOS device. We created a solution. This solution is available on Game Mode. Let’s take a look at some of these features;
This is a feature that allows you to open apps that floats on the gaming screen, without interrupting the gaming experience. Two very important apps can perform these floating functions for now which are Chrome Browser and Whatsapp.
This allows you to easily just take a screenshot of your current screen e.g High score. This feature is located on the Game Panel
This feature allows you to record your screen while playing your game. You don’t need to pause a game to activate this. Just swipe out the Game Panel and click on the screen record icon
Notice any lag during a gaming session due to too many backgrounds running apps? Not to worry. Just click on the Memory Cleaner icon to clear those background apps and enjoy a smooth game time.
Once this is activated, your device would not receive any notification message again. This is necessary if too many messages are interrupting your game session.
Turn on this feature to reject all incoming calls during a gaming session. You would only see the missed calls after you quit the game.
This is used to activate the Wi-Fi of the device while in a gaming session. This may become necessary when the mobile data signal is lost or poor.
This feature is useful particularly when you lose signal on one network provider and you want to quickly switch to another, without interrupting your game. Just tap on the icon and that is all.
This opens up some other features that is not available on the Game panel so you can access them. The following options are under the settings;
Game mode: This can be used to activate or deactivate the game mode at any time.
Game Assistant Panel: This is used to deactivate the Game Panel if you feel it would interrupt your gaming experience.
Advanced settings: This function contains the Turn off automatic brightness adjustment which is used to stop the phone’s brightness from fluctuating due to different light source, the Anti-Inadvertent Mode which prevents the screen from going blank when the sensor is covered, the Network Change Protection which prevents the network from changing from mobile network to Wi-Fi and vice versa.
Game Management: This helps you select/deselect games you want to work with the game mode.

Our phones generally contain a lot of information about us. It contains our pictures, bank details, chats and a lot of sensitive information. Anytime our phone leaves our hands, there is a high fear that some of this sensitive information would get out. We are sometimes monitoring those with our phones stylishly to be sure they are not prying further into our phones, away from what we really want to show them. Privacy is something we take seriously.
On HiOS custom interface devices, we have a feature that allows you to Hide Apps so other users can’t have access to them. Great right?
With this feature, you could just select one or more apps and hide them so nobody can access them.
How to Use this Feature
Setting up this feature is very simple. Just swipe up with 2fingers on your Home Screen and your hidden screen is unveiled. Click on Add/Remove and select the app(s) you want to hide.
There is more!
Click on the settings icon, this allows you to set a coded pattern to access the hidden app page.I think you should try it now!

Switching between networks on mobile data can be an uphilltask as you have to first visit settings, then Network and Internet, then youselect SIM card and finally mobile data. This could be sometimes stressfulespecially if you are in the middle of something and you run out of data on oneSIM.
The HiOS team saw this issue and thought deeply about how tosolve the problem. They now came up with a simple and faster way of switchingSIM mobile data without going through a long process.
Introducing, the Mobile Data Switcher!
How to UseYou don’t need to go to settings again to switch between mobilenetworks again. All you need to do now is swipe down and click on the dataswitcher icon on the notification panel and you switch instantly!
