Nowadays, the situation is getting worse and worse because the COVID-19 virus has outbroken all around the world and tens of thousands of people get infected every day. So it is very important to know how to protect you and your family from the virus.
According to the research, the aged and those with weak natural defenses seem to be at higher risk for developing a severe infection from virus. But the bad news is that there is no vaccine to prevent coronavirus or medicine to kill the virus. The best way to protect people from infection with this new virus is to avoid being exposed to them. Now, the virus has been proved that it spreads mainly from person-to-person, so there are many steps we could take to protect ourselves and others.
The COVID-19 virus is mainly spread during close contact,and by small droplets produced when people cough, sneeze, or talk. To avoid getting infected, the most effective way is staying at home if there is no urgency that you have to go out. But if you have to go out and join in the public, you need to wear a face mask. A mask will protect you from the small droplets. At the same time, keep yourself from others at a distance when you are not at home.
Hands are always the first parts of the body that will touch things that may make you get infected with virus. To protect ourselves, wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds to keep you from the virus and germs, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. Of course, the soap and water are not always available when you are out of home. So it is necessarily to get a portable washing-free hand sanitizer that contains at least 75% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry. And avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Secondly, avoid close contact. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Disinfecting is always the best method to keep you safe from the virus. In the day life, we could disinfect surfaces of tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, phones and so on. Portable wet wipes that contains 75% alcohol would be easy to clean and disinfect such places.
Warm Prompt: Wear a face mask and wash your hand frequently to keep you away from the virus.
