Coronavirus Prevention Tips:

The COVID-19 virus is claiming thousands of lives around the globe. In this grave situation, prevention is better than cure.  Take a look at the following prevention tips:

1. Use Masks When Required:

Ever since the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus, major change in daily lives is people wearing masks. Everywhere you go, you will see people using all sorts of masks that come  in various shapes and colors. There are broadly two types of masks which can protect you against the possible transmission of COVID-19:

  • N95 respirators: These are usually circular or oval in shape and are capable of filtering out nearly 95% of particles from the air.
  • Surgical masks: A surgical mask loosely covers the nose, mouth and the chin area. It limits the expulsion of particles from the wearer into the surrounding area.

According to the recent guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India, every one need not wear a mask. The use of masks should be prevented unless you are in any of the following situations:

  • You are actively coughing or sneezing
  • You are taking care of a person suspected of or infected by the coronavirus
  • You suspect that you are infected

If you intend to use a mask, you should take proper measures for the use and disposal of a mask. Clean your hands with an alcohol-based solution or soap before handling a mask. Wear a mask by properly covering your nose, mouth, and chin. Also, avoid touching the mask while wearing it. Every type of mask cannot be reused, if you are using a disposable one discard it after one use. To dispose of a mask, throw it in a covered waste bin and wash your hands thoroughly.

2. Maintain a Distance of Atleast 3-6 Feet if You Step Outside:

The Indian government has been urging the public to stay indoors and avoid going out unless absolutely necessary. People are advised to stay indoors. These measures are an excellent step towards curbing the spread of coronavirus and breaking the chain of transmission.

When you are required to go out of the house in this situation, make sure that you maintain a distance of at least 3-6 feet between you and other people. This is because the COVID-19 virus can be sprayed into the air from an infected person via small droplets while coughing or sneezing. There is a very high risk of infection if you breathe this air.

3. Care for Your Respiratory System:

According to the WHO, the early symptoms of COVID-19 are dry cough, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, tiredness, fever, etc… Thus, the COVID-19 virus mainly affects the respiratory system of a person. Coughing and sneezing are also the primary means of transmission of coronavirus. Thus, it is of utmost importance that you take care of your respiratory system and maintain its hygiene.

To have a healthy respiratory system avoid smoking. Do not go out of your way to find means of smoking when it is unavailable in these times. Quit completely. Revitalize your respiratory health by practicing breathing exercises and yoga. These will improve your overall health as well. Drink the recommended amount of water as per your age. Eat a healthy diet and wash your hands frequently.

4. Avoid Touching Your Eyes, Nose, Mouth:

There are chances that you might have picked up the virus from a contaminated surface. If you frequently touch your nose, eyes or mouth, you are accidentally transferring the virus to your body. Thus, it is advised that you avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth without thoroughly washing your hands.

5. Strictly Follow Rules and Government Advises:

While other countries and the World Health Organization have praised the efforts of the Indian government for battling the novel Coronavirus, it is our moral duty to follow the rules and advice issued via public platforms. This is the only way to help us remain healthy and free from the COVID-19 virus. Here are a few advice issued by the government of India:

  1. Stay indoors unless for an emergency situation
  2. Maintain personal hygiene. Wash your hands regularly with soapy water
  3. Maintain social distancing
  4. Do not forward news or facts about Coronavirus unless it is issued from an authentic source
  5. Do not panic
