After another surge in new cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) over the weekend, it is even more important to take preventative action.
Wash Your Hands Regularly to Help Prevent Spreading Coronavirus
Make sure to wash your hands regularly and thoroughly. You can wash them with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand rub. Sounds simple right? Washing your hands kills viruses, including coronavirus, that may be on your hands, so does this regularly!
Avoid Touching Eyes, Nose and Mouth
Why? This is where any respiratory viruses, including coronavirus, enters the body. This is a common habit throughout the world, never mind eczema sufferers who find themselves itching.
Cancel Plans if You’re Feeling Unwell
This can help to stop spreading germs to someone else. People are still flying all over the world, even though they have a chesty cough. If you feel unwell, you should self quarantine, stay indoors and concentrate on getting better.
If you start having difficulty breathing or your symptoms worsen, then seek immediate help from a doctor who can identify if you have coronavirus.
Wear a Mask to Help Prevent Spread of Coronavirus
You should wear a mask if you are coughing or sneezing. This will prevent spreading germs to other people. You also wear a mask around people that are already sick. Masks are most effective when used in combination with frequent hand-cleaning. However, if you do use a mask, please dispose of it properly.
We can all do our little bit to help prevent spreading the virus. These simple steps are the key elements in preventing catching any virus or common cold. If you know someone is sick, then tell them to seek medical help and distance yourself from them until they are well again. Stay safe and do your bit!
