The global fight against COVID-19 is getting tougher each day, with so many lives being lost and numerous fresh cases being reported every day. We all must agree that the fight against this pandemic is for everyone, or else we could end up paying an even higher cost of being careless. Billions of people facing lockdown in their respective countries is a clear indication of the harm COVID 19 can further due to humanity. While being under self-quarantine, it’s your responsibility to follow the guidelines laid out by the WHO and your national and local public health authorities.

Apart from doing your work from home and spending time with family, it’s extremely important to take the below-mentioned measures to keep up this fight against COVID-19.

Stay at Home and Maintain Social Distancing

Staying at home is the foremost demand and step towards self-quarantine. Always make sure you maintain a distance of at least 1 meter, i.e. 3 feet from anyone unwell, and is either coughing or sneezing. Doing so would ensure that that unwell person’s small liquid droplets coming out from their nose or mouth, do not reach and infect you.

Wash Your Hands Frequently

Adopt the practice of cleaning your hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based rub kills the virus that may be on your hands. Do this regularly and thoroughly in the prescribed manner and duration advised by medical authorities. Also, do not touch your eyes, or nose,or even your mouth as this may get you affected easily with the virus. Remember that your hands potentially touch many surfaces from where they can certainly pick up viruses.

Keep Practicing Respiratory Hygiene

Practicing good respiratory hygiene can do a lot of wonders in this time of global pandemic in the form of coronavirus. It is important to cover the mouth or the nose with the bent of an elbow when you cough or sneeze. Or, you can use a tissue to cover the same. Do not let the tissue come in contact with your other body parts and dispose it of immediately into the garbage bin. This would protect the people around you from catching viruses, whether its COVID-19, flu or the common cold.

What Are the Symptoms Of COVID-19?

The World Health Organization (WHO) has said that as the symptoms of COVID 19 are similar to cold and flu, it’s not easy to identify this virus at first. Corona virus symptoms generally include fever, dry cough, difficulty in breathing, tiredness, aches, and pains, nasal congestion, sore throat, runny nose or diarrhea. These symptoms begin to appear within 2-14 days of getting infected and can be usually mild and begin gradually, but some people become infected yet neither develop any symptoms nor feel unwell.
