Coronavirus is transmitted by airborne droplets, sneezing, and coughing and by contact with infected people. Transmitting through surrounding objects is also possible. At the peak of the virus, it is important to follow the methods of prevention of coronavirus.
Hygiene is considered the most important measure of coronavirus prevention. Especially hand hygiene. So mind following the common rules:
- Always wash your hands. For prevention, you can use wet wipes or disinfectant solutions, especially antiseptics.
- Keep your hands away from your face. It is the fastest way the virus enters the body.
- Avoid common objects, regularly disinfect surfaces, and devices that you often touch.
- Remember about social distancing in public places.
- Ventilate rooms regularly as in closed areas the virus spreads more rapidly.
- Wear the mask outdoors or when contact with an infected person.
Respiratory hygiene rules
Good respiratory hygiene is also an essential part of preventing coronavirus transmission. If you are infected with coronavirus – be sure to follow these rules and maintain a physical distance. The best thing, of course, is to be in self-isolation.
Do not cough into the palm of your hand; try to do it in a tissue or the crook of your elbow. Using the palm when coughing will only help to spread the virus.
Throw disposable handkerchiefs and tissues out in the trash immediately after use, and remember to wash your hands. Use a garbage bin that can be closed tightly; discard it regularly and replace it with a new one.
Even if your overall and blood test for coronavirus is negative, then these COVID-19 prevention measures will still be helpful.
Food safety rules
There is currently no evidence that food could be the source or transmission of the COVID-19 coronavirus. An exception is a case when an infected person has directly touched or sneezed on a food product.
However, there are specific prevention COVID-19 methods that answer this actual question.
- Use separate cutlery for raw foods such as raw meat and a cooked meal.
- Clean containers and packages before placing food.
- Always wash food and hands thoroughly after touching surfaces and packages.
- Do not eat from shared containers (this also applies to chips, nuts and other snacks).
At any time, the following methods of specific COVID-19 prevention increase the body’s resistance to infections:
- physical activity;
- balanced nutrition;
- compliance with the daily routine;
- refusal from tobacco and alcoholic beverages.
