Let’s conquer COVID-19 together!
When we look at the global outbreak of Coronavirus, being anxious is natural.
But, we should also remember that authorities, government, healthcare officials, and the whole world - everyone is with us in this fight.
If we take proper precautions and embrace hygiene, we will all be fine!
Being afraid is okay. Giving up is not!
You Can Protect Yourself!
It is possible to prevent COVID-19 disease. Here are some vital precautions that will help you stay away from Coronavirus infection.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water or Alcohol-based Sanitizer/hand rub frequently. This kills the viruses that may be on your hands.
  • Unless necessary, avoid going to public gatherings and other crowded places. Avoid handshakes as much as possible. Try to be 1 meter or 3 feet away from the person who is sneezing or coughing.
  • Avoid touching your face, eyes, ears, and nose. If you have to, try to use the sanitizer before.
  • Maintain personal hygiene and wash your hands frequently.
  • If you choose to wear a mask, avoid touching the exterior side of the mask. If you have to touch it, please wash/sanitize your hands immediately.
  • Discard the tissues and masks you have used in the trash basket covered with a lid.
  • Maintain a personal sanitary kit. When at home, please don’t share your towels, soaps, etc. with anyone.
  • Eat Vitamin C rich food like Tomato, Oranges, Amla, Kiwi, Lemon, Grapes, Guava, etc. Vitamin C is involved in the growth, development, and repair of all body tissues and the body functions like immunity, wound healing, etc.
  • If you see any of the aforementioned symptoms, please seek medical help immediately.
  • Don’t fall for rumors. Officially quoted by WHO on their website - “To date, there is no vaccine and no specific antiviral medicine to prevent or treat COVID-2019.”
