COVID-19: How to prevent our family from coronavirus at home

The COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) is a new infectious disease. Mabt people have been infected with coronavirus and we can prevent our family from this virus. In this article, I am giving a few suggestions to decrease the chances to spread the coronavirus.

This is a list of general suggestions that may be helpful in staying safe during the current COVID-19 crisis-

  • Protect all family members and others from infection by frequently hand washing for at least 20 seconds.

  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

  • As the coronavirus spreads through droplets of saliva or nose discharge of an infected person and to prevent spreading the droplets, everyone must cough into the flexed elbow to avoid spreading the droplets in the air and wear a mask especially when you are coughing or sneezing. Also, you can use tissue paper and throw the tissue paper in the covered trash bin.

  • As there are no vaccines or treatment of coronavirus available at present, we must protect ourselves by covering our face with face-mask, handerchief, etc.

  • We must install Arogaya Setu App on our smartphone to prevent ourselves from the coronavirus. Stay updated and follow the instructions of the Government.

  • Avoid social gatherings,

  • It is advised that you stay at home if you feel unwell.

  • If any family member has a fever, cough, and difficulty in breathing, then contact the medical administration immediately with a telephonic call.

  • Drink a lot of water and avoid alcohol consumption.

  • Rest well and isolate yourself at home if you have any symptoms of coronavirus abd contact a medical doctor,

  • Consumption of one cup of tea with cloves is the best way to prevent cough.

  • Take a bath with Dettol liquid daily with lukewarm water.

  • Avoid touching mouth, nose, and eyes with unwashed hands.

  • Only one family member must step out for buying vegetable, fruits, and necessary items from the market.

  • Wash all purchased vegetables, fruits with water containing common salt thoroughly.

  • Keep all purchased items outside (in the balcony etc.) in a clean place i.e. table at least for 24 hours.

  • After purchasing the items, the family member (who purchased the items) needs to take a complete bath with a good soap to remove the chances of coronavirus.

  • Do not allow younger (age less than 10 years) and elders (age more than 55 years) to go to market as they can get coronavirus due to a low immune system.

  • Eat a healthy diet such as with Amla (in any shape i.e. Jam, Murabba, Achar, Powder, Juice), and Tulsi leaves to increase the immunity.

  • Use video conferencing, and work from home, with telephonic discussions for meetings related to work to avoid social gatherings.

  • In some cases, COVID-19 can be spread by people who do not have symptoms of coronavirus, so avoid social gatherings and follow all the steps mentioned above.

  • If you use the above precautions then you will protect you and your family from coronavirus.
