To protect themselves and prevent the spread of the disease, all people must take precautions. We share simple rules.
Regularly wash your hands with alcohol-based products or wash them thoroughly with soap for at least 30 seconds. If a virus is present on the surface of the hands, such treatment will kill it or mechanically remove it from the surface of the skin.
Keep at least one and a half meters away from coughing and sneezing people. When coughing or sneezing from the nose or mouth, the smallest drops containing the virus are released, which the person spreads around himself to other people and objects. Being too close to such a person, you risk inhaling these drops and getting infected from him, including a coronavirus infection, if the person is sick with COVID-19.
Do not touch your face. Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth. If this is already a habit, then try to get rid of it.
The hands touch many surfaces, and a virus can get on them, and then into the eyes, nose or mouth. From here, the virus opens the way into the body, and the disease occurs.
Feel free to wear a medical mask on your face. It performs a barrier function. Using a mask is especially important for people with signs of the disease. However, this measure does not exclude the need for regular hand treatment.
Follow the rules for the use and disposal of medical masks.
If possible, use disposable wipes when touching common surfaces, such as door handles, elevator buttons, ATM keypad, etc. It has been established that the virus is able to remain viable on surfaces from several hours to several days depending on a number of conditions ( surface type, temperature and humidity).
Learn to cough and sneeze correctly. This means, not in the palm or fist, but in a disposable handkerchief or fold of the elbow. After use, the tissue should be immediately thrown into the bin. Remember, the virus is transmitted by airborne droplets.
The most common symptoms of COVID ‑ 19 include fever, fatigue, dry cough, etc. Feeling unwell is an important signal. If you feel unwell, stay home. If you have a fever, a cough, or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention as soon as possible. Follow the directions of your doctors.
Timely seeking medical attention from medical specialists is important to maintain your health and prevent the further spread of infections.
If possible, refrain from traveling and staying in crowded places. This is especially important for older people with diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or lung disease. Do not expose yourself to an increased risk of becoming infected with COVID‑19.
Strictly observing the rules of respiratory hygiene, you can protect yourself and others from viral diseases.
