How to protect yourself and your family from the covid-19


Today it is not a mystery that in the world a critical situation is being experienced due to the coronavirus and the lack of awareness of many people about it.

That is why I decided to create this publication to let you know how to take care of yourself and your family of the coronavirus.

and thus try to help even with a grain of sand, so that this does not continue to grow as it has been doing until today.

Everyone should:

Clean your hands frequently

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you've been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

  • If you don't have soap and water, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol . Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub until you feel dry.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth without washing your hands.

Avoid direct contact


  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick

  • Stay home as much as possible .

  • Put distance between yourself and other people .

  • Remember that some people who do not have symptoms can spread the virus.

  • Keeping distance from others is especially important for people who are at increased risk of becoming seriously ill .

Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face covering when surrounded by people


  • You could spread COVID-19 even if you don't feel sick.

  • Everyone should use a cloth face covering when they leave their homes, for example, to go to the grocery store or to find other necessary products.

  • Cloth face covers should not be used on children younger than 2 years of age or on persons with respiratory problems or who are unconscious, disabled or unable to remove them without assistance.

  • The cloth face cover is to protect other people in case you are infected.

  • DO NOT wear a mask intended for healthcare workers.

  • Keep a distance of about 6 feet from other people.

  • The cloth face covering does not replace social distancing measures.

Cover your mouth when you cough and sneeze


  • If you are in a private setting and do not have the fabric face covering on, always remember to cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue or the inside of your elbow when coughing or sneezing.

  • Throw the used disposable tissues in the trash.

  • Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
    If you don't have soap and water, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

  • clean a countertop

Clean and disinfect


  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily .
    This includes tables, door handles, light switches, counters, railings, desks, telephones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, sinks, and dishwashers.

  • If the surfaces are dirty, clean them. Wash them with soap and water and detergent before disinfecting them.

  • Then use a household disinfectant.

I hope and this post has been helpful.

and remember that the best existing measure to prevent covid19 is not to leave the house.

so stay home.
