Viruses can spread very easily and quickly as they have a greater possibility of mutation than bacteria. While some viruses can be compared to influenza, others have a mortality rate up to ten times higher than the flu, and they can be transmitted from person to person through droplets of water in the air, making them particularly contagious.
However, just as not everyone gets the flu in the winter, there are a number of steps that can be taken to reduce your exposure to any easily transmissible virus such as the Coronavirus that we currently suffer from around the world.
One of the two most important steps a person can take to avoid injuring or injuring anyone else is through social distancing, and this simply involves distancing themselves from people in public places, so it is important to avoid shaking hands, kissing and hugging. Social distancing also applies to behaviors in crowds. Maintain adequate distance between others in public places.
Regardless of the necessity to practice social distancing, the most important factor to reduce exposure to viruses is frequent hand washing. Use warm soapy water and scrub all areas of the hands, making sure to do this for twenty seconds. You can also use antibacterial fluids to flush out any particles and kill viruses on the hands.
Work from home
For most people, the reason to go out of the house every day is to go to work or study. Increasingly, companies are realizing that a key part of limiting the spread of the Coronavirus is by working from home. For those who do not have this option, they should take all necessary precautions and measures such as wearing a mask, washing hands, and practicing social distancing while in the workplace to significantly reduce the chances of infection.
