The Most Primary Step
1- Wash your hands
First things first, a very common rule is to wash our hands timely & at regular intervals to make sure we get rid of any germs. This must be a daily conscious practice that is to be followed to eradicate the germs.
2- Do not touch your face
Especially in your nose and mouth, any tiny germs can easily enter and cause harm to the body. Using a mask once you step out of your house will reduce the risk of being infected to a greater extent and always remember to take proper care of used masks.
3- Don’t cough or sneeze into your hands
Cover your mouth and nose with your elbow or tissue when coughing or sneezing. Dispose of the used tissue immediately. Even at home, the same rule applies, if a child or adult at home sneezes on any surface immediately sanitize the area to avoid the spread of any contamination.
4-Keep your distance
Maintain a distance of at least 2 meters (6 feet) from people outside your household. It is important to maintain a safe amount of distance, to avoid the spread of sickness.
5-Wear a mask in public places
If COVID-19 is widespread in your area, a fabric mask should be worn in all public settings where it is difficult to keep a physical distance from others.
6-Monitor your health daily
Be alert for any symptoms of COVID-19 in yourself and your family. Seek medical care early if symptoms develop, and stay home except to get medical care.
7- Clean your personal items
Your cell phone, keys, water bottle, earphones, swipe cards, lipstick, and anything else that you handle several times a day are great places for germs and viruses to hide. Wipe them down daily, or after anybody else has handled them.
