How to Stay Safe
COVID-19 is a contagious disease. This makes everyone a potential victim. This is the reason why you must take responsibility and not take your health for granted. The fight to ensure that the pandemic does not spread further begins with you. You must protect yourself to protect others! These are some of the ways to stay safe.
What your hands with soap and clean water.
It is important to wash your hands regularly because hands touch many surfaces. If you touch your eyes, nose or mouth with a contaminated hand, the virus will be transferred to your body.
Clean your hands regularly and thoroughly with an alcohol-based hand sanitiser.
In order to minimise the risk of contracting the virus, always have a hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol in handy and use it to rub your hand.
Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze.
After using a tissue, ensure you dispose of it appropriately and wash your hands. Don’t throw it just anywhere. This is because droplets spread virus, so to save people around you, you need to strictly follow respiratory hygiene.
Maintain social distancing and use facemasks.
Always maintain at least 6 feet distance between yourself and others and use facemask. The facemask will protect you from liquid droplets which are released when people cough, sneeze or speak. If you are too close to them, there is possibility that you will inhale the droplets which main contain the virus.
Don’t shake hands with people or touch surfaces anyhow.
Don’t be too quick to shake hands with people. You don’t know what they’ve touched before meeting you. You can greet them from a distance or with your elbow.
