Effective ways to prevent from getting COVID-19
An American doctor is proving that if we follow only these four simple ways, we have a high chance of not getting the deadly COVID-19.
Dr. David Price works at Well Cornell Medical Center with a hospital bed capacity of 1,200 and 90% of them are patients with COVID-19. He is the doctor who’s doing intubation to the patients diagnosed with COVID-19 so they can be able to breathe properly, in severe cases. He said the percentage of infections is greater when direct contact than with airborne.
He always pointing out that he deals with patients with COVID-19 everyday BUT has never been infected until now. When the virus came out, their hospital is not so prepared because it is not specialize in diseases like these and he himself is not well-knowledgable on how to deal with it.
But he says he only follows these four simple preventive measures that’s why he has not been infected till now.
FOUR EFFECTIVE WAYS TO AVOID COVID-19
1.Always practice proper handwashing.
Everytime we touch something (items used by the covid patient (if in a hospital), and in a public place) we should wash our hands immediately. When washing our hands, we should use soap and wash it thoroughly. This is the right way to wash your hands.
2.Avoid touching your face.
After touching things especially in a public places, you should avoid touching your face especially if you did not wash your hands yet, especially your mouth and nose. According to him, it is the most important.
3.Wear a face mask.
They say that in America, face masks are not that important and non-sense. Maybe because it’s thin and there is still a spaces that a virus can enter.
But Dr. David said the facemask is important because it helps to block the virus. What even more important about using a face mask is it will help to protect you from touching your nose and mouth. It is one of the important role of your mask. We all know that we often touch our faces unconciously.
N95 mask is not necessary, unless you are in a hospital with COVID-19 patient or places exposed to the virus. Ordinary facemask can be.
4.Refrain meeting anybody or socializing.
Aside from someone you’re living with, refrain meeting anybody or receiving guests. They may be the carrier of the virus getting in to you.
You should never take public transport such as buses, trains etc. as long as possible
Follow social distancing, 6 feet or 1.8 meters especially in crowded places.
Another preventive way others do after buying goodies is before putting it into the fridge they sanitize it one by one.
The ways mentioned to prevent the deadly virus may be simple but often, what is “basics” is that it is often forgotten to do.
