Unicef Guidelines for Prevention of Coronavirus

Bhubaneswar: As of March 2020, the outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has been declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern, and the virus has spread to many countries and territories.

While COVID-19 continues to spread like wildfire, it is important that the communities take action to prevent further transmission, reduce the impacts of the outbreak and support control measures.

Here are 7 precautions you and your family can take to avoid infection:
  1.  Coronavirus is large in size where the cell diameter is 400-500 micro and for this reason “any mask prevents its entry”.
  2. The virus does not float in the air, so it is “not transmitted by air”.
  3. Coronavirus will live  for 12 hours on a metal surface, so washing hands with soap and water will “prevent transmission”.
  4. Coronavirus remains for 9 hours on fabric, so “washing clothes” or being exposed to the sun for two hours meets the purpose of killing it.
  5. The virus lives on the hands for 10 minutes, so putting an “alcohol sterilizer” in the pocket meets the purpose of prevention.
  6. If the virus is exposed to a temperature of 26-27 degree Celsius, it will be killed, as it does not live in hot regions.
  7. Also “drinking hot water and sun exposure” will do the trick and *stay away from ice cream and eating cold* is important.
  8. Gargle with warm and salt water” kills the tonsils germs and prevents them from leaking into the lungs.

Adherence to these instructions fulfill the purpose of preventing virus spread.
