22nd March, 2020 – It has been days of being quarantined at home but yet, Corona Virus continues to ravish the lives and health of many. The effect of this pandemic has caused our lives to be utterly chaotic. From the global market crashing down to our safety violated by these monstrous infectious diseases. We don’t mean to diminish the pain and suffering, which many are and will go through because of the virus itself. It is a destructive human tragedy. It seems to be a difficult time we’re facing together but, it’s important to remain calm. Although Coronavirus or COVID’19 is a dangerous disease with no known vaccine, it is an undeniable fact that many patients have fought through and made it. This proves that there is still hope.
“Taking responsibility puts you at choice and that allows you to choose how to respond to life’s challenges.”
Let’s look at some ways in which we can help as responsible members of the society:
Avoid the use of physical money
According to news, China is disinfecting bank notes as an attempt to control the outbreak due to a recent study that claims the virus stays longer on paper. Therefore, it is highly advisable to practise digital payments using online transfer, QR code or etc.
Stay at home
It’s best to avoid close contact with people in the surroundings by staying at home and allow the virus to just pass through, making you untouchable. Stay calm and rest at home especially for those of the age of 80 and above, there is a higher risk of 14.8% in catching COVID according to Chinese Center of Disease Control and Prevention Data.
Wash, sanitize & use a mask
Wash your hands with soap/hand wash and water for at least 20 seconds. This helps to prevent the virus from staying in your hands. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. If you have to leave home, wear a face mask.
Clean & Disinfect
It’s sterile to clean and disinfect the frequently used surfaces and other areas regularly. Such surfaces include doorknobs, light switches, phones, sinks and etc. Use soap and water or detergent (with more than 70% alcohol in the solution) for a successful disinfect. Make sure to take a shower and change clothes after coming back home.
