Top 4 ways to stay disinfected from Coronavirus
As the number of confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19), continues to climb around the globe, a major question which is arising is: What are the ways to stay disinfected from Coronavirus It’s a stressful time, to be sure— but there are easy, practical steps you can take to protect yourself and others from being infected.
1) Wash your hands
You’ve heard it before, but we’re going to say it again: Wash your hand with soap multiple times a day. That’s one of the things you can find most effective. Wherever possible, after being out in public or touching a common surface or after coughing or sneezing, and before cooking and eating, get into a sink and wash your hands. Be sure to get every part of your hands and fingers— palms, wrists, under your nails, between your fingers and even the tops— and wash them for 20 seconds or more. If there is no sink nearby, using hand sanitizer with an alcohol content of at least 60 percent before you can find one.
2) Stay at home
Limit how much time you spend around or in public. It’s rare for us to be living this way, but it’s one of the best ways to avoid germ spread, so it’s important to see if we can stop the spread of this virus from person to person in the next few weeks.
3)Keep in mind the uncertainty of masks
Generally, there is no definitive proof that wearing a face mask will help prevent the virus from being contaminated. Yet public health authorities are providing mixed messages for the general public on usefulness. Masks can not suit the face tightly as we’ve mentioned, so you can still breathe in contaminated droplets. And experts are worried that masks can offer a false sense of protection.Health care providers are trained to properly use masks, and there is evidence that in clinical settings they are successful. In some cases, the CDC advises the use of masks for people at home.
4) Maintain coughing and sneezing etiquette
When you’re under the weather or feeling absolutely healthy, it’s a good idea to hit all sorts of contact pause— that’s kissing, hugs, handshakes, high fives, fist bumps, and elbow rubbish. If you’re around people, keep a distance between you— the length of an arm, Dr. Fichtenbaum says. Then try to cough or sneeze into your elbow or tissue, and then wash your hands immediately. It should help prevent germs or infectious particles from spreading.
