How to improve immunity?
According to the views of experts from China CDC and WHO, public prevention should pay attention to the following four aspects:
First, wash your hands frequently. Including before, during, and after preparing food; after coughing or sneezing; when caring for patients; before meals and after meals; when hands are dirty; after handling animals or animal waste, wash hands immediately with soap, alcohol-based hand soap and water .
The second is active protection. When you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose completely with paper towels or cuffs or elbow flexion. Throw used paper towels into closed bins immediately and wash your hands. Vulnerable people should try to avoid going to crowded public places. Masks can be worn to reduce the risk of exposure to pathogens. Avoid close contact with patients without protection, and avoid touching their eyes, mouth, and nose. At the same time, pay attention to keeping the windows and ventilation of the home and workplace clean and the environment clean.
Thirty-third is to avoid close contact. Try to avoid close contact with farmed or wild animals without protection; avoid contact with sick animals and spoiled meat; avoid contact with stray animals and waste water in the fresh market.
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) advice for the public
Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.
Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.
Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.
Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.
Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.
Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.
