Most people are eagerly waiting for the lockdown to come to an end. Many people might be planning to meet their friends and family, stepping out for shopping, or just paying a visit to the salon. Well, even after the lockdown ends, it is better to continue taking all the necessary precautions. People would still need to be careful and take care of their health, as the risk of contracting COVID-19 infection could still exist.
Here are a few things people should keep in mind and try to avoid immediately after the lockdown comes to an end:
It was the movement of people from one location to another, which led to a worldwide spread of the dreadful disease. Even if the lockdown rules are relaxed, try not to plan any family vacation for at least a few months. It is better to stay home and be safe, rather than vacationing and risking the health of you or your loved ones.
One good habit which reduces the risk of spreading COVID-19 in individuals is the punctuality of washing hands. Practicing hand hygiene not only prevents coronavirus but can also keep several other diseases aside. Even when the spread of coronavirus comes to an end, don’t stop this habit of washing your hands regularly. Hand hygiene is a practice one should adopt for a lifetime whether there is a disease threat or not.
As the quote says, ‘Precaution is better than cure,’ it is one of the best options to still use face masks while in public. Homemade masks can also be used when going out to crowded places. Continue using face masks, hand washing, and maintain social distancing for few more months in order to prevent yourself from getting sick.
It is natural that many individuals, especially the young generation, might be excited to meet their friends and to hang out at some cafe/restaurant or party at a club. But, for all the social birds, visiting crowded places such as cafes and clubs could be an open invitation to the infection. There are several cases of asymptomatic COVID-19 positive patients, which had unfortunately increased the spread of the disease. Thus, it is better to put those parties on hold and avoid meeting friends for at least some more time.
Coughing or sneezing in open can be dangerous. This is because droplets through coughing and sneezing can spread germs and diseases. Thus, it is recommended to maintain good respiratory hygiene at home or while in public. Cover your mouth with a tissue or use your folded arm while coughing or sneezing. Also, discard the tissue immediately after use.
With a large number of asymptomatic COVID-19 cases, you might never know is infected and who is healthy. Even if the lockdown ends, it is advisable to continue practicing social distancing. Avoid throwing big parties or assembling for family functions. Try to protect yourself and your family by avoiding social gatherings as much as possible.
