Best Tips to Protect Yourself from Contracting Coronavirus
Follow personal hygiene rules.
Keep your hands clean – periodically wash them with soap (preferably with an antibacterial effect), and if this is not possible, carefully treat your hands with disinfectants, preferably alcohol-based.
Do not use other people’s personal hygiene items – toothbrushes, towels and other accessories. Be sure to tell the children about it.

Wash your hands properly with soap and water for at least 40 seconds.
Do not use shared utensils for drinking or eating with other people.

Do not touch your eyes, nose, mouth and front of mask
Until your hands are washed or disinfected, do not touch your nose, lips, or other parts of your face, because holding a pen in public transport, money, or in contact with products in a store can easily transfer various pathogens (viruses, bacteria, fungi, etc.).
Cover when cough or sneeze with a tissue or into your elbow.
When coughing, sneezing, runny nose appear – use disposable wipes to cover the mouth and nasal cavity, which immediately throw them away, and then treat your hands with an antiseptic.
Avoid crowded places, refuse mass events.
If you can move to your destination on foot, use this method. Moreover, walking is a cardiac load and relates to methods for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases (heart attack, stroke, and others).
Avoid close contact
Try to keep your distance from people who have coughing, sneezing, fever, and a runny nose. Even if it is not a coronavirus, you will reduce the risk of contracting other, no less serious diseases transmitted by airborne droplets – influenza, rubella, measles, diphtheria, and SARS.
Antiseptic your phone.
Keep clean and other surfaces – at work and at home.
Handle the keyboard, mouse, desk, remotes, office equipment and other things with an antiseptic.
In the case of cough, fever, shortness of breath, runny nose and other symptoms of influenza and other acute respiratory viral infections (SARS) due to weakness, seek medical help.
At the same time, do not forget to tell the doctor – where you were, with whom you contacted, and after which you had these symptoms.
Refrain from travelling to countries or places where the epidemiological threshold for coronavirus infection COVID-19 is elevated.
Avoid handshakes, hugs and kisses.
Say ‘Namaste’ the no-contact way of greeting instead of those hugs and kisses amid coronavirus outbreak.
Lead a healthy lifestyle – move more, get enough sleep, include foods with a high content of vitamins and macro-micro elements in the diet, do not allow overcooling of the body. The main factor in the development of infectious diseases is the infection of the body, and the second, no less important, weakened immunity.
In crowded places, in public transport, or when in contact with a patient, wear medical masks. In the open air with a small number of people, a mask is not needed. Masks minimize infection of the person himself from other patients, as well as infection of other people if the person wearing the mask is sick.
