7 Steps to follow today to win the Covid-19 battle for tomorrow
With its monstrous form, Covid-19 has infiltrated our house once more. India is still working to recover from the covid-19 impact of 2020. However, if the spread of the corona is uncontrollable, the problem seems to be getting worse. People are concerned about the recent increase in covid-19 cases in India, based on the current situation. As a result, the second wave of Covid-19 has already begun, putting people’s lives in jeopardy.
We can’t just sit around and moan about the issues. To resolve the crisis, we must take steps forward. Here are our seven weapons for combating COVID-19. The pandemic has already wreaked havoc on our country and the rest of the world. Now is the time to remain strong and implement the seven coronavirus control strategies.
1. Mask is our new accessory
Masks have been shown to help reduce the rate of spreading capacity. Wearing a mask is an absolute must for those venturing outside of their home. Maintain the right process of wearing a mask by covering the nose and mouth without any gap.
Any employee and student on campus is advised to wear a mask. No one is permitted to access the campus without a mask.
2. keep your hands clean
Before and after touching every surface, you must always wash your hands. To clean your hands, use any soap, handwash, or alcohol-based sanitizer. Why is it required? Since the most common vector for virus transmission within our bodies is our hands. As a result, maintaining good hygiene aids in the prevention of covid-19 transmission.
Sanitizers have been strategically installed around the campus at CIT. To maintain hygiene, we have everything we need, including hand wash, soap, and sanitizers.
3. don’t risk your life by touching your face
As mentioned earlier that hands could be the possible vector for transmission of the virus, then touching the eyes, nose and mouth will increase the infection of covid 19. If necessary, wash or sanitize your hand before touching your nose, mouth or eyes.
4. vaccination is the only way
Even if you take every step to avoid contracting the virus, there is always a risk. To fully stop the spread of the disease, everybody must be vaccinated. Anyone (over the age of 18 as of May 1st) can register for vaccination at a recognised vaccination centre. To be fully protected against the corona, two doses of the vaccine are needed. Registration is also possible via the ‘arogya setu app’ or ‘Cowin’ online portals. Click here for the information of the vaccination drive.
5. social distancing has proven to be effective
To limit the spread of infection, keep a minimum distance of 6 feet in public places. However, social distance alone would not be enough to prevent the coronavirus from wreaking havoc. Other rules and regulations should be followed as well.
6. massive gatherings are dangerous
When the corona resurfaces in its modified form, a ban on public gatherings must be enforced throughout the nation. Any events, festivals, or holidays that include a large number of people should be avoided. Infection would be more likely as a result of this. The mass infection is also triggered by this type of arrangement. To protect yourself, your family, and your community, you should limit your participation in all activities and not attend any of them.
7. Immediate check-up if any symptoms appears
When COVID-19 symptoms appear, immediate action is needed. An individual must immediately go into self-isolation and take the test. The individual should be kept in isolation until the report is received. A delayed response will result in the spread of corona among family and friends.
