How to Prevent Coronavirus

With the recent outbreak of COVID-19 all over the world, you might be worried about contracting this virus. It is a new strain that can be potentially life-threatening with similar symptoms to the common cold. That is why you should take some proper measures to help protect yourself and other people at home or in public spaces. Below are 7 simple yet effective ways to help you prevent the contracting and spreading of coronavirus.

1Wash Hands Thoroughly

One of the most effective ways to prevent coronavirus and other microorganisms is to wash your hands thoroughly during the day. This can get rid of all the infected elements and prevent them from penetrating your body through your noses, eyes, or mouth. Start with wetting the hands with lukewarm water and then using a mild soap. Make sure to let the soap sit around 15 to 20 seconds so that it can kill all viruses. Run your hands under warm water again to clean them. Do not only rub your palm, but it is recommended to interlock and interlace all fingers as well. Always wash your hands before drinking or eating something as well as after going out in public areas. Another option is to apply a hand sanitizer with 70 to 95 percent alcohol. [1]
