Keep Yourself Safe
The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare of India and the World Health Organization has issued some guidelines to help prevent Coronavirus from spreading. Adhere to these preventive measures to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones.
  • 1. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer to kill viruses on your hand.

  • 2. Social distancing is important. Maintain at least 1 metre or 6 feet of distance from anyone who is coughing or sneezing. If you are too close, the cough droplets can enter your body through your nose or mouth.

  • 3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth as much as possible. Viruses are present in surfaces you touch like door knobs, railings, etc. The virus transfers from those surfaces onto your hands and enter your body when you touch your nose, mouth or eyes.

  • 4. Practise safe respiratory hygiene. If you have to cough or sneeze, do it on a disposable tissue or in your bent elbow. Throw the tissue in a closed bin right after.

  • 5. If you are showing signs or symptoms of the virus, do not go to the hospital as you can spread it to other patients. Call helpline numbers provided for medical assistance. By the time, self-quarantine at your home.

  • 6. Wear a mask if you have flu-like symptoms. Masks are effective only if you follow the basic hygiene. Clean you hands before wearing the mask and also before taking off the mask. Avoid touching it when you have it on. Replace the mask with a new one as soon as it gets damp. Do not use a single-use mask twice. Dispose off the mask properly in a closed bin.

  • 7. Clean frequently touched surfaces with a disinfectant regularly. This includes doorknobs, door handles, tables, chairs, mobile phones, laptops, etc.

  • 8. Stay home as much as possible. Avoid unnecessary travel; go out only if absolutely necessary.

  • 9. People with pre-existing conditions like Cardiovascular disease, Chronic respiratory disease, Diabetes, or Cancer are more at risk. You are advised to secure 1 month+ supply of medication. Follow your medication routine, do not skip any doses.

  • 10. Avoid smoking or drinking. Smokin affects your lungs and you are at a higher risk of getting the virus, as it affcets the lungs too. Also, you might transfer the virus into your body when you touch a cigarette or a bottle.
