While many people around the world are rushing to buy masks and other medical protective clothing to guard against the spread of the global epidemic of Corona, experts stress that the most important way to protect is to follow the rules of personal hygiene.
” Anadolu” agency quoted a member of the scientific committee of the Turkish Ministry of Health for combating the Corona virus, Dr. Albay Azab, as saying that the patients who are diagnosed with Corona virus have different cases and the extent of the disease they have developed.
He explained that 80% of the affected cases are accompanied by mild symptoms, and then they are similar to recovery. Between 10% to 15% of cases can have severe respiratory failure, kidney failure, and failure of the functions of some organs, and between 2% to 5% of cases can End in death.
Azab stressed that the masks is not enough to protect a person from infection with the virus, but it prevents the transmission of infection from the infected to the healthy, advising the healthy people not to use them, relying on cleaning hands constantly and avoiding touching the face, nose and eyes.
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water and use hand disinfectants. The disinfectants we use must be of high quality and reliable enough to protect you.
And in order not to lead to dry skin and cause some diseases, such as eczema. Low alcohol disinfectant is recommended.
It is also a mistake to think that washing the nose with water and salt kills the virus, and it can even cause damage if the salt level is high.
It has not been shown that any food particularly strengthens the immune system. What is important is healthy balanced nutrition. There are three methods that scientific research has proven to strengthen the immune system: balanced nutrition, adequate sleep, and exercise.
It is also a mistake to think that the virus will disappear as the weather warms, but better ventilation of indoor, home and work offices in the summer reduces the chances of infection.
The warming temperatures and direct sunlight also make viruses live for less time on external surfaces
