During the COVID-19 epidemic, how to protect yourself has become the most concerned issue. First of all, it is clear that the elderly and people with serious diseases such as heart disease and lung disease are at higher risk of serious complications after being infected with COVID-19.
To learn to protect yourself, you must understand how the COVID-19 spreads. At present, international experts and scientific research institutions believe that the virus is mainly spread from person to person.Close contact with confirmed or suspected patients; secondly, through respiratory droplets produced when the infected person coughs, sneezes or talks;Third, ordinary people's hands are in contact with contaminated objects and their mouth, nose, eyes, etc., and they are infected with the COVID-19.
So as ordinary people, how can we protect ourselves?
First, wash your hands often.
Wash with soap and running water for more than 20 seconds. (For detailed hand washing steps, please refer to the previous article).If soap and water are not available, you can also use a hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol (as recommended by the US CDC), so that every part of your hands can be cleaned until it becomes dry.
Second, wear a mask.
In public places, everyone should wear a mask, especially when close communication and communication are required. We advocate a safe social distance of 6 feet between ourselves and others, but this is not a substitute for masks.
The CDC in the United States also recommends that ordinary people try not to use masks prepared for medical staff. For example, N95, a very important item, should be reserved for medical staff and other emergency personnel.
Third, pay attention to your health every day.
Generally speaking, the COVID-19 infection is caused by certain symptoms. For example, for symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, or fatigue, take your body temperature immediately.If the body temperature is indeed high, please go to the hospital and see a doctor with personal protection to reduce the risk of others being infected.
As one of the basic vital signs, body temperature can reflect the body's metabolic state and health status.With reference to many types on the market, the most convenient choice is the non-contact forehead thermometer.In order to avoid temperature measurement errors, it is necessary to choose a high-quality forehead thermometer. For example, KIEYYUEL ’s KF-HW-001, infrared high-speed test, can perceive changes in body temperature of 0.1°C.
Monitoring body temperature changes at all times is an important means of protecting family members during the epidemic.
