Coronavirus disease, or COVID-19, spreads quickly as its transmission from human to human happens quickly.

This virus stays on surfaces from hours to several days, depending on the type of surface and the temperature and humidity of the environment. It is possible that a person can get the coronavirus by touching such infected surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own eyes, mouth or nose. Having said that, the latest I see says that this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

This virus also spreads through the air by droplets made when people with the coronavirus cough, sneeze, or even talk. These droplets stay in the air for up to three hours after the infected person has left. These droplets, when they land in people’s mouths, eyes, or noses, make their way into the lungs through inhalation.

Basic safety and some precautions are necessary and the only option to save ourselves and our families from getting infected.

Centre for Disease Control has rolled out these basic prevention and control measures, Here are those safety and preventive measures that you should remind yourself to follow.

You might already know of them, but the aim of this article is to provide you with reminders about the information that must not be forgotten.

  1. Social distancing

Avoid close contact with people who have tested positive with COVID-19. If you are sick, be responsible and keep your distance from others.

  1. Stay home

Stay indoors, and leave the house only if you have a medical emergency. Keep a minimum of six feet of distance from people. While running errands and buying groceries wear face masks and gloves. Don’t touch things unnecessarily.

  1. Wash your hands

Since it’s very easy for your hands to get in touch with any contaminated surface, you should wash your hands with soap or clean them with sanitiser. If your hands are visibly dirty, wash them with soap and water for 20 seconds. Sanitize your hands whenever possible.

  1. Don’t touch your face

The way the virus makes its way into your body is through your eyes, nose and mouth. Thus it is advised not to touch your face, especially your eyes, nose and mouth.

  1. Practice other good health habits.

Use regular household cleaning spray, bleach, and disinfectants to wipe clean and disinfect objects and surfaces that are touched frequently at home, workplace or school.

  1. Learn how to wear masks

Do not wear disposable marks for more than 8 hours. Do not touch worn masks from the front. Press the mask on top to tighten it on the bridge of your nose. Wash or sanitize your hands after disposing of a mask. Especially wear a mask if you’re sick.
