Coronavirus has spread worldwide and poses one of the biggest global health threats seen in recent years. What begins as cold and flu symptoms can quickly escalate to lung fibrosis and respiratory failure and with little knowledge available about how the virus spreads or the incubation period, it is more important than ever to take precautions to protect yourself and others against contracting coronavirus. Here are our 5 tips to keep yourself safe during the outbreak.
1. Wash Your Hands
The best and most effective way to prevent the spread of the virus is through handwashing. Use soap and warm water and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds after using the bathroom and before eating. The more frequently you wash, the less likely you are to spread bacteria and viruses.
If you do not have access to soap and water, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer or Silver Soul body spray with colloidal silver to disinfect your hands.
2. Avoid Close Contact with Ill People
Avoiding close contact with people who are sick protects both yourself and others from potentially contracting the disease. Coronavirus has an incubation period during which you may not display symptoms but you can still transmit the virus to others.
WHO (World Health Organization) advises people to keep a distance of 1 meter between yourself and someone who is coughing or sneezing. You should also practice not touching your face, nose, mouth or eyes as these are the points on the body through which the virus can enter.
3. Clean Surfaces
Frequently used surfaces around your home such as door handles and remote controls harbor a variety of microorganisms. Cleaning the surfaces of your home once per day with a disinfectant spray can help prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses around your home.
4. Boost Your Immune System
Aside from basic hygiene, the best defense against the virus is a strong immune system. The populations most vulnerable to the disease are those with compromised immune systems: the elderly, newborns and people already sick with another condition.
You can increase your body’s natural protection by taking immune-boosting supplements such as colloidal silver or a probiotic and eating a diet rich in foods such as garlic, leafy green vegetables, and citrus fruits.
5. Keep Informed
Stay informed about the latest developments regarding the virus. Your local and federal agencies will have the most up to date information available. Follow the guidelines set by your doctor and health organizations like WHO and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) as they will have the best advice about how to protect yourself from the virus.
Keep you and your loved ones healthy and safe during the outbreak by washing your hands often and using antiseptic sprays such as Silver Soul.
