COVID-19: Do this and save your loved ones


 Though Staying away from family and friends can be a tough rule to adhere to, it is also very essential that we do all we can to see them safe and alive at all times that is why we are re-emphasizing and educating the general public on the need to follow preventive measures to ensure we all survive this pandemic.

Stay Safe while practicing these precautionary measures:
Drink Lots and Lots of Water: The need for you and your household to stay hydrated can not be over-emphasized because the importance of water to life is same as the importance of air to man. If you can't afford a bottle of water, make sure you don't say dehydrated, reach out for pure satchet water and if you simply can't afford it, make sure you boil your tap water, allow it to cool down and drink. But whatever it takes, drink water and not just any water, but clean water. Water has been linked to one way you can save yourself from getting harmed by the virus. If you drink water from time to time, you might just end up washing down the virus from your throat to your stomach where your stomach acid can kill it. 

Regularly Wash Your Hands: You and your household must ensure that you wash your hands for atleast 20seconds regularly. Regular hand washing remains the most effective way to kill the virus since it spreads from mucus or droplets containing the virus which can get into your body through your hands when they touch your eyes, nose or throat. You will need to avoid too much physical contact between your hand and your five sense organs.Educate your family and friends on the importance of washing their hands, coughing or sneezing into a issue paper and discarding immediately or sneezing into elbow to avoid contaminating their hands after touching surfaces or interacting with the outside world.
Social Distancing: We all know that it is very difficult to avoid your loved ones while staring them in the face. One may even ask, "How can I stay away from my child?". It is an extremely difficult task especially when it has to do with children. So the best way out is to ensure you keep yourself extremely clean and protected. If you've had contact with the outside world and you return home, go straight in and remove your clothes, take a shower, wash your hands and clothes and gaggle with salt and water before reuniting with your family. Educate your family and loved ones, especially workers, who tend to be active around the home, to touch surfaces only when absolutely necessary and to wash their hands regularly!
If you must interact with people maintain a distance of 1 to 3 meters to avoid an escape droplet hitting your face should that person sneeze or cough.

Use Masks and Alcohol-Based Hand Sanitizers: Masks and Hand sanitizers are very very essential. While Masks protects you from been infected by droplets from a nearby carrier, the hand sanitizers have proven to be effective in protecting your hands from bacteria and viruses, too.
Alcohol attacks and destroys the protein envelope that surrounds some viruses, including coronavirus. This protein is vital for a virus’s survive and multiply. But a hand sanitizer needs to be at least 60% alcohol in order to kill most viruses.Buy a large quantity of hand sanitizer, and have smaller sized refillable bottles at vantage points inside and outside your house, for compulsory use by your family and household staff.
Note that Alcohol-based hand sanitizers should not be used in the kitchen, on Children or close to fire as they are highly inflammable Liquid substances, which means they have a flash point of less than 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Hand sanitizer vapors are also flammable.

Disinfect Daily: Make sure to get all hands on deck for daily disinfecting. All railings, switches, handles, table tops, chairs, and other frequently touched surfaces must be wiped down with a disinfectant and clean cloth. Involving everyone in the chore will give a sense of shared responsibility.

Take Vitamins Regularly : From natural vitamin sources, to vitamin supplements, it is important to have a daily dosage with your family, as this will help boost immunity.
Create a schedule for everyone and enjoy a variety of immunity boosters such as Spirulina; Ginger, Lemon, and Turmeric mix; Vegetables; Nuts; Vitamin C supplements, and Yoghurt.

Never Share: In this season, there are many new ways to show to one another and sharing your clothes, cups, spoons, etc with family is not part of  it. Infact, make it a point of duty to differentiate your personal belongings. Sharing some items might just be increasing your loved ones vulnerability to the virus should you per-adventure contract it. Try not to hurt your loved ones by politely educating them on the extreme need to stay protected from this contagiousness disease.

Exercise More: Encourage your housemates and staff to exercise and stay fit. It could be any fitness routine from jogging to taking long walks.
