COVID-19: PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE
3 simple steps
As the search for a vaccine continues, simple home remedies such as practising hygiene, staying indoors and avoiding crowded places can help you and your family stay safe.
Moreover, these 3 simple steps can be an immediate solution and a long term one. How long can a country be under lockdown? What would happen if this is the case for the next 3 months? Questions as such get us worried in our quest to get back to our regular life. For us to get back to our regular life, we need to ensure that preventive measures are the first step to curb the spread of this deadly virus.
How Does COVID-19 Spread
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), the deadly coronavirus is said to spread from only infected humans-to-humans. Since this is a respiratory virus, it affects another by coughing, sneezing or by talking. In such a scenario, it is recommended that you use a face mask without the risk of being infected or infecting another person.
How To Protect Your Family From COVID-19
Like the experts say that you need to wash your hands, do not touch your face and use face masks, there are advanced preventive measures you will have to take when travelling or commuting.
- Regularly washing hands with alcohol-based sanitizers and soap.
- Cover mouth and nose with elbow or tissues when coughing or sneezing.
- Avoid close contact with anyone with flu, cough and cold symptoms.
- Regularly clean phones, light switches, taps and doorknobs with disinfectants.
- Consult a doctor if you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing.
Wash Hands For 20 Seconds > Before eating > After sneezing, blowing & your nose > After using the bathroom
Wet your hands with water > Apply soap or hand wash on your palm > Scrub your hands > Back, in between fingers and under your nails for 20 secs > Rinse with water
Wear A Medical Mask
If you have any respiratory problems such as coughing or sneezing, then it is recommended that you wear a mask to prevent the spread of infection. This comes handy in protecting you from any infection or from spreading it.
“This is the simplest way to prevent COVID from spreading. All you need to do is stay inside your homes, practice hygiene and stay away from social gatherings. Quarantine can get interesting if you keep yourself busy. It’s the best time to concentrate on yourself and learn new things such as cooking, gardening, playing a new musical instrument etc.”
