5 Ways to stay safe from COVID-19

So far so long too much has been said and assumed about the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic across the globe but unfortunately, countries are failing to figure out how we can end this spreadable disease. As some of the offices and business are re-open and people opt to leave their homes hence it becomes very crucial for all of us to take proper precautionary measures.
With COVID-19 cases still a reality, it becomes very important to remember the basic principles that we can take to halt the community spread of the pandemic.

Here are the best five ways to stay safe from COVID-19 :

Wear a double facemask :

Since COVID-19 has happened the very first urge that has come from the team of experts and WHO is to wear a mask. Wearing a face mask when you leave your home is a form of social responsibility too. By doing so you won’t only protect yourself but also help others – by not becoming a virus carrier.

Maintain Social Distancing

Wearing a mask is one step but another major way through which we can reduce the effect of the coronavirus is by maintaining 6-feet of distance from all. For our communities with strong family ties it’s very much understood that’s it’s quite difficult but we have to find ways to deal with it. Avoid going to crowded areas, shopping malls, and restaurants.

As the second wave of the coronavirus has affected many lives hence we need to understand that that restricting our outside movement is the only way to defeat this virus. Also, unnecessarily going outside may inadvertently expose you to the virus that causes COVID-19. And, because everyone’s risk is different, we need to maintain physical distance at all times and look after each other.

Wash your hands frequently

Wearing gloves is a false kind of security especially in such a scenario when you don’t know how and when you accidentally expose yourself to this virus. To avoid all such situations better go and wash your hands frequently.

And as per the latest medicated record – all must wash their hands with best-medicated soap followed by rubbing it for and around 50 to 60 seconds.
Also, wearing gloves could be a good option but for situations like when you are out for grocery shopping or visiting the hospital for some reason, etc.

If you must, gather outside

While staying at home is still highly recommended, if you’re going to be a part of a gathering, do it outside. The corona cases are on peak – so avoid all sorts of gathering but still, if you do it then doing it outside is highly recommended. While still maintaining distance and wearing a face covering.

Don’t share your food or drinks

Tho we all have practiced sharing is caring but avoid doing it till the time we won’t get rid of this havoc virus. Whether you are having a meal at home or in a restaurant or have joined a get-together avoid sharing your meal or drinks with anyone or everyone as it’s the best way of avoiding cross-contamination. Contagious saliva droplets from an ill person or person carrying the virus unknowingly, can land onto food or drinks or even on utensils. Therefore everyone should bring their food and drink.

That’s all, we all need to understand that this virus is still around us and hasn’t gone anywhere not even partially. Hence we need to take care of ourselves and on our own by following all these COVID-19 safety protocols. With this, we hope that soon we will defeat this virus and will demolish it successfully from planet earth. Till then stay safe and don’t go out until it’s very much required
