Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is the viral disease caused by the coronavirus that was most recently identified. Many people who have become contaminated suffer and recover mild disease, but it will be more serious for some, particularly the elderly and those with existing medical conditions. Here are only a few easy actions you should take to protect your wellbeing and other people’s health.
1. Clean Your Hands Often
Clean your hands regularly and properly with an alcoholic hand rub or wash them with water and soap.
We often use our hands to touch highly infected items and surfaces. We then touch our hands without noticing it, transmitting viruses on to our eyes, nose and mouth where they will kill us. Thoroughly wash your hands with a good soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub to kill viruses that can be on your skin — like the COVID-19 virus
2. Avoid Contact With Eyes, Nose And Mouth
Sometimes we touch our faces without knowing. Keep this in mind and stop rubbing your eyes, nose and mouth.
Hands touch several objects and can catch viruses. When infected, the hands will transfer the virus to your eyes, nose, or mouth and then get into your body to get you sick.
3. Cover Your Mouth While Coughing
Make sure you practise proper respiratory hygiene, as well as the people around you. It implies that anytime you cough or sneeze, you protect your mouth and nose with your elbow bent, or with a tissue. Instantly dispose of the used tissue into a sealed bin and wash your face.
If anyone coughs or sneezes, they release tiny liquid droplets that may contain viruses from their nose or mouth. You stop transmitting influenza and other germs to others by covering up a cough or sneeze. You stop moving infected droplets to your face using the curl of your elbow or towel and not your mouth to shield your tox or sneeze. You may protect an individual or a substance from being contaminated by touching it with your hands.
4. Avoid Busy Areas And Avoid Someone With Fever Or Contaminants
Avoid busy spaces, particularly if you are above 60 because the health problems affecting your wellbeing include elevated blood pressure, diabetes, coronary and lung disorders or cancer. Stay at least 1 metre far from each other with a fever or cough.
COVID-19 primarily spread out through the mouth or nose by respiratory droplets that cough a person who has the infection. You stay away from people who could be sick with COVID-19 or some other respiratory illness by avoiding busy areas at least 1 metre.
5. Update Yourself On The Latest Knowledge
Become aware of reliable sources of the latest knowledge on COVID-19. Be sure the knowledge comes from reputable outlets – the World Health Organization, the state or national public health department, the state health care provider. It should be well known that the symptoms began with fever and dry cough for most people.
The latest up to date details about whether the COVID-19 spreads in your region can be collected from local and national authorities. They are in the appropriate position to tell people what to do for themselves in your town.
In a nutshell, ensure you follow proper social-distancing norms and always wear a mask while leaving your house. Moreover, only leave your house when absolutely essentials. Stay safe, stay home.
