The world could be facing that once in a century pathogen that could take a dangerous step ahead Covid-19. The last time we faced such an issue was in 1918 where millions of people died due to influenza. In other words, almost 1% of the world population died due to that virus. Although taking precautions can help in keeping yourself safe from this virus.
Covid-19 originated from the Wuhan city. Where more than 2500 people have died due to this virus. The ones that survived are way more than that. In some countries, people are not taking this situation seriously. WHO has recommended some precautions that should be taken by the people.
We are going through a situation where all have to show responsibility to contain this virus. Your immune system is quite vital in this case. Consuming foods that can help in making your immune system better is important. Foods that are rich in vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin D, selenium, and iron are beneficial for your immune system. There are tons of foods that are rich in such nutrients. Bone broth, seafood, vegetables, nuts, legumes, grains, seeds, and fruits should be on your diet list. It’s better to prepare now than later. The following precautions should be taken with strictness.
The best thing that you can do is isolate yourself. Keeping yourself isolated is the best option for you. Although if you are a working person then this thing can be difficult for you. If your company has allowed you to work from home then you should stick to it. While some countries are saying that a lockdown of 2-3 weeks can contain this virus but that’s highly unlikely as 3rd world countries don’t have enough medical resources to deal with this issue.
KEEP YOUR HANDS CLEAN
Bacterias and viruses are easily attached to your hands. If you touch a place that was previously touched by an infected person, then chances are that you might catch that virus. So it’s important to take this precaution and wash your hands frequently. WHO has recommended that you should wash your hands for 20 seconds not less than that. The reason is that this virus is protected by a layer of fat that can be washed away with water. Soap destroys that layer of fat and that virus is easily cleaned from your hands.
Consuming healthy foods that are rich in immune-boosting nutrients is very important for your health. You should store some extra food if you are thinking about keeping yourself in isolation. Buy bone broth, canned foods, canned vegetables, and frozen things. This will help in improving your immune system. If you are sick or safe from it you should consume foods that will improve your health and prepare your body to fight off this virus.
AVOID CROWDED PLACES
Social distancing is very important in the current situation. Keep your distance from others and avoid going to crowded places. If someone asks you to visit a gathering of 20-30 people then you should clearly say no to them. This is the most important thing that you can do is to maintain social distance. Although it might seem difficult and some might feel bad about it but you have to take full responsibility and avoid any contact with others.
STOP TOUCHING YOUR FACE
Like I mentioned before that your hands can be full of bacterias and Covid-19. When you touch your face it makes it easy for the bacteria to enter inside your body through the eyes, nose, and mouth. So washing your hands and avoid touching your face. These two are the most important precautions that you can take in order to stay safe from this virus.
The world is going through a tough time and all of us have to take full responsibility before it is too late for Covid-19. This virus is spreading at a rate of 2.5. Which means that 1 person is infecting 2.5 others on an average rate. Do your part and take serious precautions to avoid catching this virus and even spreading it to others that are still healthy. I hope that you will follow these precautions and stay safe from this novel coronavirus.
