The world is facing an unprecedented global health, social and economic emergency with the COVID-19 pandemic. Travel and tourism is among the most affected sectors with airplanes on the ground, hotels closed and travel restrictions put in place in virtually all countries around the world.
With your contribution, this chaos can decrease and the world can become a better place. Here’re 5 you can sanitise yourself with and trust us, they are easier than you think.
Prevention is better than cure
The practice of social distancing means staying home and away from others as much as possible to help prevent spread of COVID-19. It has promoted the use of digital entities such as online video and phone communication instead of in-person contact.
Whenever you are around people who are not members of your household, Maintain at least 6 feet of distance between yourself and others.
Avoid crowded places, particularly indoors, and events that are likely to draw crowds.
Be the batman, cover your face!
The world badly needs a super hero right now and with absense of all of them, be the batman yourself. Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth to help protect others because chances are, you’re infected with COVID-19 but don’t have symptoms.
Wear a mask in public settings when around people who don’t live in your household, especially when it may be difficult for you to stay six feet apart.
Make sure you wear it correctly for maximum protection. Don’t touch the mask, and, if you do, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer to disinfect.
Not 99.9% but kill 100% germs
The best way to prevent the spread of infections and decrease the risk of getting sick is by washing your hands with plain soap and water. Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is essential, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing one’s nose.
If soap and water are not available, CDC recommends consumers use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Having more than 60% alhocol, La Clinica hand sanitiser gel has the potential to kill all the possible germs on your hands when applied for more than 15 seconds.
Wipe down door handles and clean your hands afterwards
From your home, to your car and everywhere you visit outside, there’s no denying you’re touching object. If you are unsure of the level of contamination on a surface, it’s always best to use a hand sanitizer after touching it.
As for the door handles and button switches, unless you are the owner of the handles, it may not be best for you to clean them. Stick to cleaning your hands instead.
If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
Pay attention to personal hygiene
Yes, we know you’ve heard all this a million times already but it bears repeating. There are a lot of things we don’t know about this virus, but we do know it spreads through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Other individuals may be infected when they touch a surface that has virus particles on it and then touch their own mouth, nose, or eyes. Hand hygiene is the very best weapon in any fight between human and contagious disease.
