For so long we have been living our lives without the fear of a worldwide pandemic. Going out with friends, clubbing, and going on vacations to various parts of the world without a care in the world. Suddenly, we were pushed back from all these for reasons beyond our control. Locked in the houses and required to take proper precaution so as not to entertain the corona virus. Uninteresting, right? What do we need to do to curb the spread of the virus? What are the preventive measures we should take to protect our families and friends from this deadly virus?

WEAR A MASK

This cannot be underestimated as it helps from a two-way curve, contracting the virus and preventing others from contacting it. A lot of people argue about how uncomfortable it is to wear a mask all day every day, but it’s more comfortable than being in the ICU while subjected to a ventilator or an oxygen mask.

WASH YOUR HANDS

This is very essential as our hands are the gateways to reaching every other member of the body. Do you know that bacteria can spread from your hands to your eyes, nose, mouth and ears? Washing your hands periodically decreases the chances of transferring germs to your body whether consciously or unconsciously.

EAT HEALTHY FOODS

One of the ways we can combat this virus is by aiding our immune system with enough strength to fight against potential harm, and we can only do this by eating healthy and taking enough vitamins. Foods such as vegetables, proteins, zinc, and other nutrients help in strengthening the body against harm and this can in turn protect you from getting the virus.

EXERCISE REGULARLY

Don’t wait until you are weak to exercise regularly. Regular exercise strengthens your bones, boost your energy, improves your mood and combats health conditions.

DRINK A LOT OF WATER

Let’s take this test today, for the remaining days of the month take up to six glasses of water daily and report whatever you’ve noticed in your health.

The world will soon be back to normal, but for now let us ensure we take necessary safety precautions to curb the spread of this dangerous virus.
