What to Do to Prevent Coronavirus?

Prevention is the most effective solution to the coronavirus crisis. Hygiene and personal protection are the key factors to keep safe from COVID-19. Most countries are imposing social distancing, self-isolation, and quarantines in an effort to prevent further spread of the disease.

Follow these ways to prevent COVID-19 infection:

Wash your Hands:

Always wash your hands before and after going out. Coronavirus can be killed and removed from the hands by washing thoroughly with soap. This is the first line of defense against coronavirus infection.

Most infections occur through touching a contaminated surface and then touching the mouth or nose. So make sure you keep your hands away from your face when outside and clean your hands thoroughly when you get back.

Use Sanitizers:

Using regular anti-septic hand sanitizers can effectively kill coronavirus on your hands. So always carry some sanitizer with you as finding places to wash your hands can be difficult especially if you have to stay out for a long period of time.

Sanitizers are a cheap and very effective option to keep coronavirus at bay.

Disinfect your surroundings:

Coronavirus can easily be eradicated by the use of disinfectants like detergents, phenol, and other sanitation products. As one of the key ways it spreads is through contact with a surface contaminated by the virus, simply cleaning around the house can greatly reduce the chance of infection.

If you think you have been infected, it is essential to disinfect your living space and your belongings. Supermarket grade cleaning products are enough to kill coronavirus from clothes, surfaces, floors, etc.

Clean your Phone’s Screen and your Keyboard:

Your phone is the most germ-infested item in your possession. So, your phone’s screen is an ideal place for coronavirus waiting to enter your body. More importantly, our phones are things we touch constantly. We speak through it in close proximity to our face and mouth. So it is a dangerous platform to facilitate infection. However, you can clean your phone easily using alcohol pads or any type of screen cleaner and get rid of any germs there may be on it.

Similarly, your keyboard is also a germ-prone hotspot. Keeping your keyboard and work surface as possible will greatly reduce the chances of infection.

Buy in Bulk:

Buy grocery items and household supplies in bulk. This saves you repeated trips to the market and saves you from unnecessary exposure. Markets and shopping malls are ideal places for coronavirus to spread as there is contact between huge numbers of people every day in a small area.

However, be careful not to panic. Most people during any crisis outbreak storm the local grocery stores and buy everything they see in a crazed frenzy. So be collected and responsible. Buy only as much as you need for a week or so.

So, by following these guidelines you can protect yourself and your loved ones from being infected. As the situation will only deteriorate before it gets better, it is our responsibility as conscious and upstanding citizens to do as much as we can to support those who are suffering from COVID-19 as well as the brave men and women who are fighting to stop it.

During Self-isolation buy these quarantine items in bulk:
