The new coronavirus is a respiratory virus. It spreads primarily through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose.
To protect yourself, clean your hands frequently with an alcohol-based hand rub. Moreover, wash them with soap and water.
And how to prevent coronavirus at home? Can you contact the coronavirus disease by touching a surface?
People could catch COVID-19 by touching contaminated surfaces or objects! And then touching their eyes, nose or mouth.
Avoid sharing household items
You should not share dishes, drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, towels, bedding with other people in your home. After using these items, you should wash them thoroughly with soap and water.
Clean all “high-touch” surfaces, such as counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets, and bedside tables, every day. Also, clean any surfaces that may have blood, body fluids and/or secretions or excretions on them.
Wash laundry thoroughly! You should wear disposable gloves while handling soiled items. Wash your hands immediately after removing your gloves.
Don’t forget to read and follow directions on labels of laundry or clothing items and detergent. In general, wash and dry with the warmest temperatures recommended on the clothing label.
Clean The Kitchen More Than Once A Day!
According to the New England Journal of Medicine — the coronavirus may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces. So it’s possible someone might unknowingly have brought it into the house.
The virus, officially dubbed SARS-CoV-2, is more stable on plastic and stainless steel than on copper and cardboard. It might survive on plastic and stainless steel for up to 72 hours.
Dishes and cutlery
Washing with hot water and detergent is fine for dishes and cutlery. A dishwasher is even better, because it can use hotter water than your hands will tolerate.
Stay home to stay healthy! Prevent coronavirus at home! To know the enemy is to win the battle!
Stay home except for essential needs!
