How strict are we in following health protocols against the coronavirus disease?
Since the start of the pandemic, international and local health authorities have suggested practical and straightforward ways to protect ourselves and the rest of our families against the deadly pathogen.
Again, most of these protocols like physical distancing, wearing of face masks and shields, and constant sanitation using soap and water, and antiseptic are sadly taken for granted, especially within households.
Under new normal policies, everyone is asked to wear masks outside of their homes, especially going to crowded and confined places where the virus could infect reportedly through airborne droplets.
Though there is no generally accepted study on how COVID-19 spread, it is accepted worldwide that it is spread through droplets loaded with the virus that enters a human host through the mouth, nose, and possibly through the eyes.
But all these protocols may be widely followed in public places, but experts are also calling people to follow the same in houses, where some cases are spread undetected and untreated.
The World Health Organization has suggested seven habits that the public can practice out in public or inside their home’s comforts to avoid getting infected by COVID-19.
- Clean your hands often.
- Cough or sneeze in your bent elbow – not your hands!
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Limit social gatherings and time spent in crowded places
- Avoid close contact with someone who is sick.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
With most countries in and abroad experiencing several resurgences of cases in recent weeks, being careful is always the best course of action as pharmaceutical companies continue to race to develop a safe vaccine against the virus.
Health experts have warned people that the virus may be creeping into communities and houses through asymptomatic hosts who do not display influenza-like illness.
There are also those people who are at risk of being a carrier because of their job. These include frontliners like health professionals and those always outside and interacting with people. If you happen to have a friend or a family member with such risky jobs, health experts suggest that you take extra precautionary measures to ensure that you and your family are protected.
