Here are Health Tips to Prevent Infection!Don’t touch your face!
COVID-19, like most coronaviruses and the flu, enter the body through the mucous membranes in the eyes, nose, and mouth – all of them on the face. I realized that one of the main reasons that I touch my face is to brush away my loose hair that falls on my face. So I fastened my hair with a scrunchy and tucked it under my cap. Wearing the cap also reminds me – don’t touch my face! I’m on my solo walk in the park. I’m keeping social distance – with fresh air, sunshine, flowers,… and a curious squirrel who ran up to my feet. But I walked away. Better rude than sorry 🙂
Touching your face is an unconscious habit, and it’s easy to slip – so wash or sanitize your hands as soon as you get home – do it regularly.
Cover your nose and mouth. Health Care Workers need medical-grade masks but a scarf or home-made mask offers some protectionAvoid touching paper and public surfaces – that includes cash, receipts, doorknobs, railings, etc.Hydration, multivitamins and particularly zinc are helpful for body’s defense against all viruses. Use as directed. Excess of any vitamins and minerals not recommended and could actually lower your immune response.
Do not take Ibuprofen or Advil – unless truly necessary.
According to some sources, these drugs make the virus much worse – with patients winding up on ventilators.
This warning about Ibuprofen and Advil is disputed, but we say, why take the risk?
