Precautionary measures from corona virus

Now Corona virus-19 reached to more than 200 countries of the world. This pandemic virus infected more than 2 million people worldwide and near 1.6 Lakh people died. As it is a new kind of virus, it took time to know how it spreads, symptom, how to prevent spreading in the community, etc. However, based on WHO guidelines, research, and preventive measures taken by other countries following physical measures are discussed for protection from corona virus-19.

Physical distancing:

Physical distancing

Maintain a physical distance with other at least 2 meters. During sneezing, dry cough, exhale and conversation, virus spreads around the person with minor droplet comes out from the person’s mouth and nose. Research shows that this droplet may travel near 1 meter around the person. So maintain a distance of 2 meters to be at safer side.

Stay at home unless or until it is necessary to go to outside:

Almost all the country where covid-19 identified, was locked down the area to stop spreading the corona virus in community. So, self isolation is extremely necessary. Earlier it was advice that be at safe distance from the ill person. But as a lot of person who are recently infected does not look like infected and there are some asymptomatic carrier of the virus is available around us. Hence obeying locked down criteria holistically shall be maintained.

Washing hand or using hand sanitizer

As corona virus spread through hands, hands shall be washed frequently by soap. If you are going to outside, then do not touch your mouth, nose, eye without washing your hand. Where ever soap is not possible, use Hand sanitizer. But there is a risk associated with both soap and sanitizer. Residue shall not be entered in our body. So, wash your with clean water thoroughly. For hand sanitizer, chemical used in the sanitizer shall be effective for killing microbes and equally the chemical shall not harm our skin. So, after a lot of study, I have selected following two for your use.

Wear Mask

Now wearing mask is mandatory in a lot of states. Here mainly two types of mask can be wore. One is N-95 mask and another 3 ply surgical mask. Wearing mask will help us to prevent spreading of the virus. N-95 means filtering efficiency of the mask is 95% and it is recommended by WHO. 3 ply surgical mask also found to be effective. Make sure that one single mask shall not be used for many times. Mask shall not be source of contamination. So, proper practice shall be followed for wearing mask.
