Follow These Tips and Protect Yourself from Coronavirus
Ever since COVID – 19 has hit the world, things have changed tremendously. Every nation in its own way is trying to curb the situation. Currently there is no vaccine for preventing coronavirus disease so far. Social media platforms are replete with multiple messages related to Coronavirus. However, the fear and panic is more in public. In this post we are sharing with you some tips to tackle the situation.
Well, we all know that there is no vaccine, but fortunately there are few things that everybody should do and avoid being exposed to this virus.
Here are the tips that we all should definitely follow:
- Since the virus is said to be spread mainly from person-to-person so it is best to maintain at least 1 and 1.5 mt distance. Avoid public places, like temples, mosques, market places, cinema halls, malls etc. As these are the places where many people gather at the same time and the chances of getting exposed to the virus increases.
- Make sure you wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been to any public place, blowing your nose, sneezing or coughing.
- Keep a sanitizer handy, because soap and water can’t be readily available. In such cases you can use hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizer that you buy should contain at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands as much as possible.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Eat only light and homemade food. Avoid eating cold or refrigerated food.
- Drink hot water as and when you feel thirsty. You don’t need to drink the whole glass all at once, have two to three sips of hot water at a time.
- Avoid going out as much as possible, and wear a face mask whenever going out.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or a handkerchief when you cough or sneeze. You can also use the inside of your elbow while sneezing.
- Do not reuse used tissues and masks.
- Clean and disinfect your frequently touched surfaces, like doorknobs, light switches, tables, countertops, handles, desks, keyboards, toilets, phones, faucets, and sinks.
- Do not panic. Educate your kids about the DO’s and DON’Ts, instead of scaring them.
Last but not least, Maintain Social Distancing, Stay Home, Stay Safe and Have Faith!!
