The ongoing pandemic has drastically altered our lives, and while the world struggles to find a solution, it is essential to maintain personal hygiene, practice social distancing and stay healthy. Here are some tips that you can follow to keep yourself safe during these challenging times:
Maintaining personal hygiene is crucial as it helps prevent the spread of germs.
Wash Your Hands Regularly
Wash your hands thoroughly using soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer whenever you touch any object, before preparing food or eating, after using the washroom or if you have just come back from outside.
Cover Your Mouth And Nose
Cover your mouth and nose while coughing or sneezing with a tissue or elbow , dispose of used tissues immediately in a closed bin and avoid touching your face.
Wear A Mask
Wearing a mask has been recommended by various health organizations around the world. It serves as an effective barrier against airborne transmission of infection when practiced alongside other precautionary measures such as social distancing.
Since human-to-human transmissions are one of the main ways through which COVID-19 spreads, practicing social distancing must be followed religiously across all settings – public places, crowded events, workplaces and gatherings.
Stay At Home
If possible stay home unless there’s really something that needs doing outside like going grocery shopping or seeing your doctor. Avoid situations where large groups of people congregate i. e attending concerts unless necessary.
When stepping out exercising caution becomes important too in regards to maintaining adequate distance between individuals; at least six feet apart should be maintained wherever feasible. This reduces risk further limiting close interactions with people who’ve contracted covid even if they might not show symptoms yet.
Immune System Boosters
Building a robust immune system is necessary to combat infections. Your immune system, if regularly nourished and well taken care of will help keep you fighting fit.
Consume a balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients. Avoid excessive consumption of alcohol and oily/fast food as they weaken the immune system.
Not only does regular exercise improve your mood but it goes a long way in keeping your mind, body and soul healthy which ultimately boosts the defence mechanism of our bodies against various infections. Ensure that you practice social distancing during your workouts if exercising at a public gym or class setting.
1) Are there any home remedies I can use for immunity boosting?
While some natural ingredients like ginger, turmeric, garlic have shown to have properties that may be effective in strengthening the human immune system; none of these should be relied on solely – A proper scientific dietary regime with supplements where indicated by physicians always covers nutrition intakes adequately.
2) Would wearing gloves protect me from getting infected with COVID-19?
Experts do not suggest wearing gloves unless specifically advised by authorities as incorrect glove usage could also result in infection via hand-to-face touch points. Gloves must get discarded / washed between individual uses.
Regardless of role & profession thus we are all equal in our responsibilities towards stopping Covid-19’s spread, . Be sure to stay informed about new developments – guidelines and restrictions are constantly changing –so look out for updates regularly!
