Fighting COVID-19? Here is what you need to do. First of all, let me start this by saying one fact: IT IS NOT JUST A FLU! The COVID-19 virus is highly contagious (only takes 15 seconds for someone to get infected) with no effective cure, and the mortality rate is up to 8%! Don’t let anyone on the TV telling you otherwise. And in times like these, there is nothing wrong with being extra careful. So as someone who lives in a city that battled this virus and came out alive, I want to offer you a few tips:
• Well, for starter, please don’t underestimate the virus. Listen to the doctors, and medical experts, like Dr. Fauci.
• Practice social distancing by keeping a distance of about six feet from others if you must go out in public. Stay home if you can and avoid gatherings of more than 3 people.
• Workout to enhance your immune system, at the moment, that’s the only thing that kills the virus.
• Wear a facemask. You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle). There has been extensive research that the wearing of masks, particularly the N95 masks (95% minimum efficiency level in air filtration), will prevent an infected patient from spreading the virus. The majority of those infected with COVID-19 do not show symptoms. That does not mean that they are not contagious. While the asymptomatic might not know they have the virus, they could easily be spreading it. The mass wearing of masks without exception has certainly played a role in the containment in China.
• And if you have, safety goggles are also recommended. The virus is known to get inside the human body through mouth, nose, and eyes.
• Keep a hand sanitizer your pocket/ purse with 75% alcohol, or wear disposable gloves.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, computers, phones, keyboards, sinks, toilets, faucets, and countertops. In China, all buildings’ elevators provide tissue for pressing the buttons and sterilize every couple of hours. So if you are from the building/community management side, please do so as well.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Finally, let's give a big round of applause to our #MedicalProfessionals, they are the real #heros, let's support their work by practicing their advice, and stay at home for them.
This shall pass, and together, we will prevail!
