Washing hands is the foundation of preventing diseases but we've all done it wrong. Wet your hands (it doesn't matter the water temperature), wash vigorously and start counting up to 20 as you scrub everywhere, especially wrists and fingernails. Another major mistake is that people are shaking their hands to make them air dry. Then, wipe with a paper towel to avoid any leftover germs, then use the towel to turn the handle of the faucet so you don't contaminate your hands again when finished. "Nearly all the germs are borne by the hands to your respiratory tract. It's very important to keep them as healthy as possible, "said Dr Adit Ginde, an emergency medicine professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. "It would minimize transmission significantly if people were doing it well."
Using sanitizer for hands: Using alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 per cent alcohol if you're away from a sink and wash your hands with the sanitizer the same way you'd use soap and water. If you can not locate a sanitizer for hands, don't worry. It is easier to wash your hands with soap and water, anyway. (If you see the recipe for a homemade sanitizer using aloe vera gel and alcohol circulate on social media, it does'
Wash your hands periodically: As a primary care, think about washing your hands before you leave the house (protecting others from your germs) and after you arrive at your destination (to avoid the germs you picked up from the doorknobs, elevator buttons, public transportation, etc.)You can also wash your hands before, during and after cooking food. Wash your hands before and after feeding, sweep your house and change a pair of slices.
Break this cycle of looking up: You know you want to get your face touched. Studies say human beings touch their faces as a means of self-relieving. Keep tissues in your pocket for those times when you need to brush your face to wipe itchy eyes and noses off (and then throw them away). You can even support with contacts, lipstick and gloves.
Cleanse the home: Specialists in infectious disease know where germs lurk and we asked them how to disinfect them. Their suggestions? Work on high-touch areas every day for a routine cleaning— doorknobs, light switches, TV remotes, refrigerator and microwave handles, fridge and drawer pulls, faucet handles, and toilet flushers. Offer the area a favourite spot for mailing or a famous family closet. Washing your hands and try to clean up any of those high-touch places when you get home. Also without the coronavirus, this is sound advice.
To use the cleaning materials correctly: You don't need cleaners in a hospital degree. Many scientists think the virus can be destroyed by standard household cleaning supplies (which also use the same ingredients as hospital cleaners). Should not worry if your store has run out of disinfectant cleaners and bleach that promises to kill 99.9 per cent of the germs. Also if soap and water do not remove all the germs, scientists suggest.
Wipe your phone: They still have the germs on your palms, your desk and your picture on your phone now. Some of those germs are harmless, some of them are disgusting. Whenever you can stop sharing your phone with others-someone else's phone is like holding your hand. And seek to use the feature of a headset or speakerphone so your phone doesn't reach your ear.
Deal with the sneeze or cough: Don't sneeze into your bare side, no matter where you are (even at home) When you do, the odds are that a remote TV, a doorknob or a faucet handle would be tainted by this side. If you sneeze or cough (no cloth handkerchiefs!), please take a tissue and then throw it away and quickly wash or sanitize the hands. Sneeze onto your wrist, if you don't have a tissue. Yeah, you got your sleeve infected.
Establish your gap: The keyway cultures seek to slow down the virus is through social distance practice. Try to maintain six feet of personal space in public areas to prevent sneeze or cough flying droplets (droplets that carry the virus may move about that distance). Avoid cramped workspace, and standing shoulder to shoulder in bars or subways with people.
What does refuge in place mean? May I leave the house? Also in communities where strict rules on leaving the house were enforced by the authorities, you can still go out for the important. This is all O.K. in other situations, too. To go out and take walks or workout. Families will spend time in backyards and open spaces (levitating playground equipment) while maintaining a distance of six feet from those they don't live with.
