Congratulations! You've completed the game. Now, here are the tips to help prevent the spread of coronavirus ( and explanation as to how they can help ) by WHO (World Health Organisation): -
Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, or clean them with alcohol-based hand rub.
The COVID-19 virus travels very quickly by hands. Wash them frequently with soap for 20 seconds thoroughly (including back of your hands, between fingers and also under nails) to get rid of the virus. In case a soap is not accessible, use chlorinated water or hand sanitizers with at least 60% alcohol content. Also, use a clean dry cloth or single use towels to dry your hands after washing them.
Maintain at least 1 metre distance between you and people coughing or sneezing.
When someone coughs or sneezes, they spray small liquid droplets from their mouths and noses. These droplets may contain many viruses that may be transmitted to you if inhaled by you.
Avoid touching your face.
Hands touch many surfaces that may contain the virus. When the contaminated hands touch the face, the virus may get transferred to the eyes, nose or mouth. The virus can then easily enter your body and make you sick.
Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
Covering your mouth and nose with a bent elbow or a tissue while sneezing or coughing and then immediately getting rid of the tissue and washing your hands are a part of good respiratory habits. These ensure no viruses get transmitted from you to others via the released small liquid droplets.
If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early.
National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.
Refrain from smoking and other activities that weaken the lungs.
Since the COVID-19 virus targets the respiratory system of a person. A weak respiratory system only acts as an easy target for the virus.
Practice physical distancing by avoiding unnecessary travel and staying away from large groups of people.
Someone in large crowds may contain the virus which may easily get transmitted to you by even the slightest form of physical contact. Maintaining social distancing ensures no physical contact and thus prevents transmission of the virus.
Avoid physical contact while greeting.
Since respiratory viruses can transmit by any sort of physical contact including handshakes, it is necessary to avoid any physical contact while greeting. Some safe ways of greeting are - waving hands, nodding and bowing.
Some extra points to remember: -
Wearing rubber gloves does not guarantee protection against the virus. The virus can stick to the gloves' surface just like your bare hands. Avoid touching your face while wearing rubber gloves too.
People of age greater than 60 with underlying conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, respiratory conditions or diabetes are highly prone to COVID-19. They should avoid any sort of interaction with those who are possibly infected.
Stay hydrated and eat balanced diets, these ensure a properly functioning and healthy immune system which will only increase your body's ability to resist diseases.
