How do you and your family survive the COVID 19 virus?
The corona virus is currently the deadliest virus in the world, killing more and more people around the world. Although many countries in the world have developed antidotes for the COVID virus, its effectiveness is only up to 90%.
Therefore, even if this vaccine is taken, there is a possibility of contracting the COVID virus again. It is therefore a virus that cannot be defeated by relying solely on drugs. Our direct contribution as human beings is essential.
The virus, which started in China, has now spread to the rest of the world. Its RNA structure changes so frequently that new virus groups are formed, so it is a serious task to develop a proper drug for it. Therefore, in order to defeat it, many changes must take place in our daily lives.
If the COVID 19 virus is prevalent in the community where you live, you should follow body distance, wear face masks, keep windows and ventilated areas of the house and rooms well ventilated, and keep your hands clean frequently. You can protect yourself by following simple steps, such as covering your elbow area when coughing or sneezing. Also, follow the instructions in your living and workplace.
What measures should you and others take to protect yourself from the COVID 19 virus?
- When coughing or talking, keep a distance of at least one meter between yourself and others to prevent yourself or others from becoming infected. If you are at home, it is better to stay even farther.
- Make it a point to wear a face mask and go out to other places. To get the most out of the face mask you use, it is essential that you wear, store and clean or dispose of it properly.
The correct way to wear a face mask.
- Whenever you touch the face mask, clean your hands after touching it.
- Make sure the mask you are wearing covers both your mouth and chin.
- Dispose of the mask you throw away in a hygienic manner. Or if it is a face mask made of cloth, wash and clean it every day.
- Do not use a mouth mask with air valve.
How do you make your environment a safer place?
- Restrict contact with people in isolated areas and densely populated areas, and restaurants, concerts, fitness centers, extracurriculars, nightclubs, offices, and places of worship are often crowded places where loud shouting takes place. Therefore, the probability of spreading the disease from those places is very high.
- Prolonged exposure to infected people in high-risk, densely populated areas and in areas where adequate ventilation is not available has confirmed that the virus spreads more efficiently through contaminated water that comes out when talking to others.
- Meet others in a spacious open space. Conversations in the open are safer than conversations in the home. In particular, the ability to maintain distance from each other and to better ventilate the home also helps prevent disease.
- Wear a face mask.
Pay more attention to basic hygiene.
- Rinse your hands regularly with alcohol or soap. This removes viruses and germs from your hands.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Because the hands touch many surfaces, it can spread the virus to your hands. If you touch your nose, eyes and mouth with dirty hands, your chances of contracting the virus are very high.
- If you have a cough or sneeze, use tissue paper. If this is not possible, cover your mouth and nose with your elbows. If you use tissue paper, put it in a trash can that can be covered.
- If you used your elbow area, wash and clean it thoroughly. This helps protect people around you from the common cold, flu and the COVID 19 virus.
- Regularly clean door locks, cell phones and all other appliances that you use frequently in your normal life with disinfectant.
- If you left home for some activity, take a shower or clean yourself when you return home.
What should you do if you feel sick?
- You need to know the basic symptoms of COVID 19 virus. Namely, fever, dry cough, and fatigue. Other symptoms that affect some people with mild symptoms include loss of sense of smell, body aches and pains, headache, sore throat, redness of the eyes, and diarrhea.
- If you have minor symptoms such as a cough or a mild fever, stay at home. Contact your healthcare officer for the necessary health advice or contact the hotline. If anyone cares for you, they should also wear proper hygiene equipment. This is to prevent you from infecting others.
