The COVID-19 pandemic is not over yet. There may be other potential outbreaks too that lead to widespread illness. Follow the COVID-19 prevention protocols to protect ourselves from the virus. Do not forget to implement health and hygiene procedures by washing your hands using soap, using face masks, and maintain physical distancing. Consume nutritious foods and vitamins as well as stay hydrated. Have regular physical exercises and get enough rest. Habituate yourself and your family members to clean the surfaces of objects that often get touched such as the door knobs, tables, and chairs with some disinfectant. Clean your body or take a shower and change your clothes after going outside of the house. Maintain your health, especially if you have certain comorbidities such as hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and so on.
If you feel unwell or experience symptoms such as fever, flu and cough, fatigue, sore throat, difficulty breathing, followed by loss of smell and taste, get a COVID-19 test immediately and self-isolate for at least 5 days. Do not visit public places and other people’s houses. Avoid interacting with older people who are above 60 years old as well as people with comorbidities such as diabetes, hypertension, cancer, or other chronic diseases. Check your oxygen saturation regularly to see any potential worsening conditions. If you need medical assistance, arrange some online consultations with the doctors when necessary. Keep an updated list of the nearest emergency units, ambulances, and hospitals that treat COVID-19 as a precaution.
