So guys, we guess you have already heard that coronavirus is already in Lagos Nigeria, Hence it is pertinent for all Nigerians to learn ways to stay safe from the virus.
First Coronavirus is a virus that lives inside the human body, and study reports that the virus cannot stay outside the human body longer than 1Minute.
Furthermore the virus can only be contracted via any openings in the human body, through the eyes, nose, mouth etc. hence the need for face masks.
Apart from Face masks, here are the few steps provided by the World Health organization to stay away from being infected by the virus.
- Wash your hands frequently; your hands are tools that take food into your mouth, you can even touch other part of your body like your eyes, ears, nose. One can easily carry the virus and between the 1 minute it survives outside the body, it can have access inside another. Hence washing and sanitizing your hands is needed.
- Maintain Social Distancing; you must maintain atleast 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. because when someone coughs or sneezes, they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain the virus.
- Avoid Touching eyes, nose and mouth; Our hands touches several surfaces and may pick up the viruses, and once contaminated, one can transfer that same virus to the eyes, nose or mouth, and can enter your body that way.
- Practice Respiratory Hygiene; like covering your mouth and nose with your elbows when you sneeze, and also quickly dispose off tissues. This will help keep you and people around safe from the virus further spreading.
Kindly make use of these steps and share to your friends and family.
