Coronavirus has caused millions of people to feel worried about the virus. Most people who have contracted Corona virus have mild symptoms and improve within a few weeks. Generally, they stay in a non-healthcare setting to avoid community transmission. However, some people can become very ill, especially with underlying health conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure. Even if you and your family are fully vaccinated, you still have to be careful. Here is how to keep safe during this novel coronavirus pandemic that you have to keep in mind.
Avoid Crowded Places
Stay home. Do not go out unless necessary – for example, medical emergency or if you have to go grocery shopping to buy your needs. Do not go to bars and movie theatres that can put you at risk. If you are indoors, open all the windows to let in the fresh air.
Wear Face Protection
Wear face protection, such as a face shield, whenever you are outdoors. It can protect your whole face, which includes the eyes, nose, and mouth. The said parts can be the gateway where the virus can enter your body. Remember, though, that it should not replace the face mask.
Always Clean and Disinfect your Home
Keep your home safe by cleaning and disinfecting it at all times. All the more you have to it in the high-touch surfaces – doorknobs, drawer pulls, faucets, handles, light switches, remote controls, sinks, and toilets.
Remember, anyone who comes in and out of your place can be the virus carrier. In addition, the virus can stay on surfaces for up to 24 hours. Therefore, make Corona virus a habit to clean and disinfect, even if you are not leaving home. Use cleaning products that can kill the virus, as not all are useful for all types of germs.
Wash your Hands Regularly
One of the best ways to get rid of germs is by regularly washing your hands with soap and water. Scrub your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If you do not have access to soap and water, use alcohol or a hand sanitizer instead. The alcohol or sanitizer needs to have 70% alcohol.
Apart from high-touch surfaces, you must disinfect the items you buy at the grocery store. It is better to be safe than sorry, right? Wash them with a powerful cleaning product.
Practice Social Distancing
Keep a safe distance of 6 feet when you are outdoors. If you are at home and a family member has the virus, make sure not to be in contact with them.
You should get vaccinated as soon as possible with the approved vaccines that can help protect you against the virus.
Apart from this list, take time to monitor your health every day. Watch for Covid-19 symptoms like cough, fever, and shortness of breath.
