As you probably know, the disease named, COVID-19 is spreading throughout the globe with very little signs of slowing down at the moment, this is how you can avoid being infected with COVID-19.
1. Social Distancing
COVID-19 is still a new disease to us, meaning that the whereabouts about it is still unknown, only having mysterious rumours about it’s cause and how it works. As of now, the only thing that we are certain of is that it gets transmitted through air, this means that being near any other human being is highly discouraged. The reason why is because of how the disease works, symptoms will only start showing after fourteen days, meaning that during the incubation period, the host could possibly infect others without knowing that they, themselves also have it! On the other hand, if we just social distance, the host will save other peoples’ lives by avoiding contact with other people.
2. ALWAYS Wash Your Hands
Sometimes, you may unknowingly touch something that may have strands of COVID-19 on it, this won’t go into your body though until you touch your face, which is where most viruses enter your body. COVID-19 is no exception, once you touch your face, the virus goes into the body, starting the incubation period. To avoid this, you will want to wash your hands as much as possible using soap, or an alcohol-based hand rub. This can greatly decrease your chances of being infected with COVID-19 and keep you from possibly infecting others.
3. STAY AT HOME
The best thing you can do as of now is to constantly stay at home, with the virus having unknown whereabouts, staying at home is your best bet as you can just avoid the virus entirely instead of reducing the risks of getting it. The only reason that you would go outside as of now is to get food or something that you need in life. Even if you do go out, the two points above are what you need to focus on to avoid possibly getting it. Staying at home can reduce your risks of getting COVID-19, and combine this with the two previous points, and you can tremendously lower the chances of being infected! Stay safe out there and hope everyone finds these tips helpful.
