CORONA: Effective ways to prevent the transmission of the deadly virus

Above all, the best and only effective way to prevent the transmission of the deadly virus is to maintain Good hygiene and social distancing. These both remain the top two tactics.

 

Now, as coronavirus spread across the globe, people are scrambling to find ways that will protect themselves from getting sick with this dangerous disease.

 

How to protect yourself from the Coronavirus...

Let's discuss some tips to guard yourself against contracting coronavirus:

 

Wash your hands

 

Washing your hands frequently is among the most effective way to protect yourself from the virus. Carefully clean fingernails and the skin between your fingers along with other hiding places. Wash your hands after blowing your nose, coughing, using bathroom gardening, touching animals, before and after eating. Rinsing for at least 20 seconds as recommended.

 

Use hand sanitizer

 

It is always a good idea to clean your hands whenever possible. In the circumstances when you have no access to soap and water use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol. You can carry a pocket bottle with you to use any time anywhere.

 

Don’t touch your face with dirty hands

 

We, humans, have a natural instinct to touch our face many times in a day. Due to an outbreak of coronavirus, this instinct became a death call for us. The reason behind it is that coronavirus can enter your body through your eyes, nose, mouth, and other orifices. 

Therefore contaminated hands on your face can lead to an infection from this deadly virus.

 

Stop touching your face!

 

Avoid close contact with people who are sick

 

You have no idea that who has an infection so it's better to avoid close contacts that can get you in trouble. Maintain a distance of at least 6 meters. If you encounter someone who is coughing and sneezing, immediately move away. Also, advise him to cover his face.

 

Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze

 

Sneezing and coughing minuscule droplets that filled with thousands of viruses and bacteria. These viruses can land on surfaces, other people, and even stay suspended in the air for long periods.

Therefore, try to cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow or cover your mouth with a tissue to prevent spreading germs and bacteria.

 

Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces

 

Maintain a good habit of cleaning surfaces with bleach or disinfectant. kitchen and bathroom surfaces, the telephone, door handles, kids’ toys, and other common surfaces should be cleaned regularly.

 

Boost your immune system

 

Yes, the most effective defense against any infection is an active and healthy immune system. Include the following in your daily routine:

 

  • Exercise: Take regular exercise and aim for 30 to 40 minutes, three or four times a week.

 

  • Eat well: Limit alcohol consumption and eat good food and fruits daily.

 

  • Drink up: keep yourself hydrated by drinking lots of water the whole day. Hydrated cells are better to fight infection and flush toxins, germs, and contaminants from your body.

 

  • Eat your five-a-day: Eat fruits and vegetables that contain phytonutrients, antioxidants, fibers, oils, and acids. These will keep you healthy and your immune system strong.

 

Combat stress

 

Do you know taking stress can make you more susceptible to viral infections?

To keep yourself calm and healthy, use yoga and relaxation techniques. Examples: self-hypnosis, or deep breathing to calm your mind. 

Consider calling your friends any closed ones to share your troubles and anxious feelings. The government has even started a helpline number that will provide you are a counselor for your psychosocial issues.

 

Get enough sleep

 

Do not compromise with your sleep because it helps your body to recover, lowers stress, and is an essential survival mechanism.

So, get at least 8 hours of sleep per day.

 

Don't panic

 

We all are facing the same danger in the current time. But panicking is not an option...

Try to keep yourself calm and face the challenge in front of you with strength and courage.
