In this article, we will know what is the role of diet, mask, and sanitizers in protecting us from coronavirus?
According to the biological classification systems, Coronavirus is a large family of viruses. This is responsible for many known illnesses in humans like the common cold, fever, etc. This is a new type of virus globally known as novel-coronavirus. It is earlier not identified in human beings.
Common symptoms of coronavirus are fever, cough. It also provides symptoms related to the respiratory system such as difficulty breathing, shortness of breath. In its most serious form, it can cause kidney failure, pneumonia, and even death.
Role of diet in protecting us from coronavirus:
Coronavirus has many uncertainties, and we are not able to eliminate our risk of acquiring COVID-19. But one thing we can do is take a healthy diet.
Therefore, in the fight against Coronavirus, we have to strengthen our immune system. To increase immunity we need to take foods rich in Vitamin-C (amla, orange, etc.), ginger, garlic, tulsi, nuts, almond, cashew, etc.
So ultimately taking a healthy diet can increase immunity system and help us to fight against coronavirus.
Role of masks:
The coronavirus has been reported to be spread through respiratory droplets. Droplets that are coming out from the mouth of an infected person can be transmitted through the air or by direct contact with other people. Therefore, it becomes very important to wear masks to protect ourselves from this deadly virus.
It should also be noted that people should wear masks only when they are suspected of being infected when going out. Healthy people are not always required to wear masks. The purchase of excessive masks leads to a shortage of masks for healthcare professionals who need it more because they are always in contact with infected people.
So it is not necessary to wear a mask always, but do wear it in case you are coming in contact with someone infected or suspected to be infected.
It is also mandatory to maintain social distance in this crucial time unless otherwise not required.
Role of Sanitizers:
Hand sanitizers are chemical compounds mostly made of alcoholic (especially isopropyl alcohol), with some emollient and some oils (for aroma purposes).
Hand sanitizers have properties capable of killing microbes present on surfaces. Due to alcohol, this microbe-killing property is present in sanitizers.
During the current problem of coronaviruses causing worldwide destruction, the use of sanitizers is very important. It is also very important to keep in mind that regular and proper washing of hands with soap & water for a minimum of 20 seconds should be preferred as it is the best way to kill germs on our hands. Sanitizers are always used as substitutes for soap and water if washing hands with soap and water is not possible.
All together healthy eating, taking preventive measures, and maintaining a physical distance. This will be our biggest weapon for protecting us from the coronavirus.
There are also basic safety tips issued for the public includes regular and proper handwashing, while sneezing cover your nose & mouth and avoid any form of contact with someone showing symptoms of the coronavirus.
