All You Need to Know About Covid-19 and Face Masks
Jeet Banerjee | April 7, 2020
COVID-19 has imprinted viral outbreaks on a global scale. No other pandemic disease has drawn such collective attention globally for a very long period. One of the major risks of the virus is that there are some carriers who do not show any symptoms but are equally contagious as the ones with symptoms. Symptoms may include dry cough, tiredness, fever, nasal congestion, sore throat, runny nose, body aches or diarrhea. People can get affected by COVID-19 from other people who are already affected or are carriers of the virus through contact with respiratory droplets from the nose or mouth which the affected person exhales sneezes or coughs.
To reduce the chances of being affected or spreading COVID-19, one must follow these basic precautions:
- Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitizers or with soap and water.
- Maintain a minimum of 3 feet distance from anyone who is sneezing or coughing.
- Avoid touching your nose, eyes, and mouth.
- Maintain respiratory hygiene by covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze with tissues and dispose of them immediately after.
- Seek medical attention immediately if you show any of the above-mentioned symptoms.
- Stay up to date on COVID-19 hot-spots to avoid traveling to those areas.
When to use a face mask for COVID-19?
- Wear a mask if you have a runny nose or if you are sneezing or coughing.
- If you are healthy, wear face mask if you are taking care of any affected person or if you are going outside of your home.
- Masks are only effective when combined with proper hand cleanliness hygiene.
- Clean your mask frequently if it is re-usable or dispose the one-time usage masks immediately after using it.
How to wear Corona Virus mask?
- Clean your hands properly before putting on a mask.
- Place the mask properly in your face so that it covers both your nose and mouth.
- Do not touch the mask while you are wearing it without cleaning your hands.
- While removing the mask, remove it from behind and avoid touching the front of the mask.
In these unprecedented times, there has been a high demand of face masks leading to more demand than supplies.
