Now is the time for us to take action to flatten the curve or to slow down the rise of COVID-19 cases around the world. With these simple safety measures, we can do our part in saving the lives of our family, friends and loved ones.
Here are the following precautionary measures that can help you and your family reduce your risk of getting infected by the virus.
1. Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently
It is essential to practice hand hygiene properly. You should teach your family to clean and wash hands regularly. Health authorities advise to wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or you can use alcohol-based hand rub with greater than 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol which can help kill viruses.
2. Refrain from touching your face especially your eyes, nose and mouth
Studies show that COVID-19 remains for several hours to days on surfaces and contamination on surfaces touched by people is one of the main ways that COVID-19 spreads. Our hands can transfer the virus to the eyes, nose and mouth and from there the virus can enter the body.
3. Regularly clean your house and environment
You should intensify the cleaning and disinfection in your household. Regularly clean both frequently and minimally touched surfaces with a detergent or disinfectant solution that contains antiviral activity which can help kill viruses attached on surfaces.
4. Practice respiratory hygiene
Respiratory droplets spread viruses such as cold, flu and coronavirus. We should practice good respiratory hygiene to protect the people around us. Always cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing with the use of tissue or bending your elbow, then dispose used tissue immediately.
5. Seek medical early if you experience symptoms of the virus
It is advised that if you feel unwell, stay at home. But if you experience symptoms of the virus such as fever, cough and difficulty breathing, you should seek medical attention and call your healthcare provider in advance to direct you to the right health facility. Also, it is essential to follow the directions issued by your local health authority.
