CORONOVIRUS PROTECTION RECOMMENDATIONS!

CORONOVIRUS PROTECTION RECOMMENDATIONS!

Dear members of the faculty and students of the institute!

 

The World Health Organization notes that in most cases (about 80%) COVID-19 is characterized by a mild course and ends in recovery. But there are also complications. How to protect your health and the health of others? World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations.

 

Wash your hands regularly.

Wash your hands regularly with soap or wash them with an alcohol-based product (if they are not very dirty). If a virus is present on the surface of the hands, this will kill it. It is also worth regularly disinfecting your gadgets and office equipment.

Try to avoid crowded places.

Do not visit crowded places unnecessarily. If possible, choose remote methods of payment and registration of services.

Keep your distance in public

Keep away from people at least 2 meters away, especially if they have a cough, runny nose, and fever. Coughing or sneezing, a person with a respiratory infection spreads the smallest drops containing the virus around him. If you are too close to such a person, you can get the virus by inhaling air.

If possible, do not touch your eyes, nose and mouth.

Why is this needed? Hands touch many surfaces on which the virus may be present. Touching the hands containing the infection to the eyes, nose, or mouth can transfer the virus from the skin of the hands to the body.

Follow the rules of respiratory hygiene.

When coughing and sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with a napkin or bend your elbow; immediately throw the napkin into the garbage container with a lid and treat your hands with an alcohol-containing antiseptic or wash them with soap and water. If you cover your nose and mouth with your hand when coughing or sneezing, germs can fall on your hands, and then on objects or people you touch.

Do I need to refrain from shaking hands and hugs?

Yes. Viruses that cause respiratory infections can be transmitted by shaking hands and touching the eyes, nose and mouth. In greeting, wave your hand, nod or bow.

Should I wear a mask?

Yes. WHO recommends wearing a mask only if you have symptoms of COVID-19 (especially a cough) or if you are caring for someone who might be sick. Disposable masks cannot be reused. In June, WHO changed its recommendations for the use of masks for the prevention of coronavirus. They should always be worn when you leave home.

Is wearing rubber gloves effective in public places?

Not. You are more protected from the virus when you do not use rubber gloves, but wash your hands. The causative agent of coronavirus infection can contaminate gloves. Touching the face after this will transfer the virus to the face and expose yourself to the risk of infection.

If you have a fever, a cough, or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention as soon as possible.

These symptoms require immediate medical attention, as they can be caused by a respiratory infection or other serious illness. Symptoms of respiratory damage in combination with fever can have a variety of causes, among which may be COVID-19.

If you feel unwell, stay home until you recover, even if you have mild symptoms, such as a headache or a runny nose. By refraining from contact with others and not visiting medical institutions, you help these institutions to work more efficiently and protect yourself and others from possible infection with COVID-19 or other viral infections.

Coronavirus-related hotline: 1003. You can also call the Agency for Sanitary and Epidemiological Well-being: 71-276-49-66.

Take care of your loved ones

Check regularly about the health status of loved ones. Encourage them to engage in enjoyable activities. Help older relatives buy food and pay bills. Give your kids calm and right advice.

If you are 60 years old or older, and if you have somatic illnesses (such as hypertension, heart, lung, cancer, or diabetes). Avoid crowded places and places where you can meet sick people.

Do antibiotics help?

Not. Antibiotics do not act on viruses; they are active only against bacterial infections. COVID-19 disease has a viral nature, therefore antibiotics are ineffective. Antibiotics should not be used to prevent or treat COVID-19. Their use is allowed only as directed by a doctor for the treatment of bacterial infections.

Does garlic protect against coronavirus infection?

Garlic is a healthy product with certain antimicrobial properties. However, during the current outbreak, there was no evidence of garlic intake as a means of preventing infection with the new coronavirus.

Dear members of the faculty and students of the institute!
