6 Ways to Protect Yourself from COVID-19

1. Wash hands frequently

Use hand soap and wash your hands with running water. Wipe your hands with disposable paper towels or clean towels. Wash hands immediately after touching respiratory secretions (eg. after sneezing).

2. Maintain good respiratory hygiene

When coughing or sneezing, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or towel. Wash your hands after coughing or sneezing each time. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with your hands.

3. Enhance physical fitness and immunity.

 Eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly, and work regularly to avoid excessive fatigue.

4. Keep your surroundings clean and ventilated.

Open the window several times a day for no less than 3 times, 20-30 minutes each time. When the outdoor air quality is poor, the frequency and time of ventilation should be appropriately reduced.

5. Minimize activities

Minimize activities in crowded places to avoid contact with patients with respiratory tract infections.

6. Isolation

If symptoms of respiratory infections occur, such as cough, runny nose, fever, etc., rest in isolation at home, seek medical treatment as soon as possible if the fever persists or the symptoms worsen.
