BREAK THE CHAIN
Let us come together and break the chain of infections.
DO YOUR PART.
These are unprecedented times and we are forced to do things that we may not be used to or are comfortable with. But these are essential to stop the virus from spreading even more. We want to avoid it getting to the phase where a lot of people get infected at the same time and our healthcare facilities cannot handle everyone at the same time. That is what happened in Italy and we need to learn from those experiences around us.
At the root, there are just 3 things:
Hand Hygiene - clean hands often and before you touch your face wash hands
Social Distancing - do not gather, try not to go out unless for essentials, keep six feet distance if you must go out
Self Quarantine - if you feel sick or if you have traveled to affected countries or places, self-quarantine and observe isolation guidelines
Hand hygiene is often brought up as a necessity in the fight against COVID-19. Since we use our hands to touch anything and everything, they can easily transmit diseases from one person to another. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water before you touch your face or eat any foods. If you don't have the facilities to wash your hands, according to the CDC, you can clean your hands using hand sanitizer containing at least 60% rubbing alcohol.
