How can we save ourselves? (11 ways to avoid CORONA Virus Infection)
As you know, this is a “novel virus”, meaning to say nobody knows exactly how it behaves as no past researches have been done on this!
This is why it’s a real big threat. Whatever is known till now is as under-
It is effecting the people with lower immunity– Elderly people and small kids are easy targets
It can infect you if an infected person is coughing, sneezing, spitting near you (within 3 meters range)
If you come in contact with an infected area like- metal surface, cardboard, clothes, currency notes, public transport, etc.
If you have a habit of touching your face from time to time while you are out
So here is the least that you can do to be safe:
Wash your hands from time to time
Wear a mask!
(Some foreign doctors suggest that it should be worn by the infected people not the healthy ones but for a country like India, where the infected ones are least bothered, no one should take a chance!)
Avoid eating outside, especially avoid cold stuff and drink warm water all the day from time to time. Try to have water boiled with ginger, black pepper (Kaadhaa) and The Golden Milk (Haldiwala Doodh) to boost immunity against throat infections
Do not touch your face while you are travelling
Wear clean clothes, wash your face hands and legs once you reach home with warm water and then only come in contact with your family members.
If washing your hand with soap is not possible then keep a sanitizer always ready with you!
Remember that Personal Hygiene is the key to fight this.
Keep in mind the sources from where you are gathering the informations, COVID-19 is a serious problem, while I am writing this blog more than 5000+ lives worldwide are already lost! No one exactly knows how to tackle it, everyone is only suggesting on basis of the little researches conducted till now, so be smart! If super power like USA couldn’t stop it from spreading then you can think about what the world is dealing with, but it’s not the time to panic….it’s time to act!
