How to protect yourself from Coronavirus? Everyone should know the answer to this question at the present time, and here are some basic rules.
First and foremost, you should stay home if you can. In case you have to go outside for groceries and essentials, wear gloves and a face mask and keep a safe distance from the people around you.
The virus attaches itself to hair and clothes. The good news is that any foamy soap or detergent can kill the coronavirus. So, when you get back home, the first thing you should do is to take your clothes off and take a bath or shower immediately. If you can’t wash your clothes daily, hang them in direct sunlight, because as Chinese doctors discovered the sun is able to neutralize the COVID-19.
Very carefully wipe down all plastic and metallic surfaces with antibacterial wipes because the virus can stay alive on plastic and metal for up to nine days. Avoid touching handrails, doorknobs, gas pumps, ATM machines, hand in hand exchange of cash, with bare hands. Also, make sure to keep all surfaces clean and sanitized in your own house.
As a matter of fact, people touch their faces on average 90 times a day. Under the present circumstances, we have to be extremely cautious and avoid doing so!
Hot liquids protect you from Coronavirus!
If you want to protect yourself from Coronavirus, drink lots of hot liquids like soups, coffee, tea or just hot water with lemon. In addition, take a sip of a warm beverage every 20 minutes to neutralize the virus before it has a chance to get into the lungs. Avoid eating cold food and drinking cold beverages.
Simply taking vitamin C is good but it’s not enough. Eat lots of fruits, vegetables, and high-quality proteins. At the present time, it’s more important than ever to keep your immune system strong and healthy.
And the last and the most important rule of all is to wash your hands with soap in warm water for at least 20 seconds, every 20 minutes.
If you are outside, where you can’t wash your hands, use hand sanitizer.
We wish you all the best and hope these recommendations will help you stay safe and healthy.
Stay home save lives.
