How Can One Prevent Infection From Coronavirus?
Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a communicable disease that spreads in a way similar to the common cold. This means that you can catch the virus by coming in contact with an infected person’s cough or sneeze droplets. You can also get it by touching any object that the infected person has touched. Maintaining basic hygiene is helpful in stopping the spread of the infection and dealing with chronic health conditions.
Wash your hands frequently with soap, especially before and after meals, or after coming back from public places. Keep tissues and hand sanitizers handy in case soap and water is not available. If possible, wear a mask wherever you go, and disinfect surfaces like dining tables before touching them. Cautiously avoid sharing personal items like cutlery, hand towels and napkins with others. Moreover, eating foods that build up your immunity will help you to safeguard your health from infections.
In case you are sick, avoid leaving the house until you have fully recovered. Consult your doctor if you have symptoms like fever, shortness of breath and cough.
