During Covid Times - We need to adopt more healthy habits - with clean hands, wearing masks & maintaining 6 feet physical distance from others to prevent the spread of germs.
Rule 1: Wash the hands often so that it prevents the spread of infections from one person to the other.
Germs can enter the body when we:
Touch our eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
Prepare or eat food and drinks with unwashed hands
Touch a contaminated surface or objects
Blow nose, cough, or sneeze into hands and then touch other people’s hands or common objects
When to Wash Hands?
After using the toilet
After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
After touching an animal, animal feed, or animal waste
After touching garbage
Before, during, and after preparing food
Before eating food
Before and after caring for someone at home who is sick with vomiting or diarrhoea
Before and after treating a cut or wound
Five steps in wash hands
Wash the hands with clean water and soap.
Wash the back of hands too, between fingers, and under nails.
Scrub the hands for at least 20 seconds.
Rinse the hands well under clean, running water.
Dry the hands using a clean towel or air dry them.
Hand Sanitizer can be used when we can’t use Soap and Water
Rule 2: Wearing a mask
Wearing a mask is a preventive measure to limit the spread of certain respiratory disease-causing viruses. Masks not only protect oneself but also help to protect others because if mask wearers are infected before symptoms of an illness appear, it filters the spread.
Which mask is to be worn?
Fabric masks are recommended to prevent transmission in public areas.
Who should wear a mask?
Without any exemption, when we step out of our house we should move to wear a mask.
Rule 3: Maintain physical/Social distancing
Maintaining 2 meters (6 feet) distance between oneself and others.
Why physical or social distancing?
When someone coughs, sneezes, or speaks they spray small liquid droplets from their
nose or mouth which may contain the virus. If we are too close to the infected person, we can breathe in the droplets, including the virus. Thus to prevent acquiring infection from others we should maintain social/physical distance.
