Necessary precautions for the safety of Covid 19
The world is following essential precautions to avoid and block the spread of the virus. You can find some of them below:
Avoiding 3cs (Contact, contract, and crowd)
3cs means close, gathering, contract. It has been noted that the virus has been rapidly increasing in places that are crowded and contracted. The virus mainly spreads because of contact, so it is necessary to avoid gathering and close contact.

Wear a mask, wash your hands frequently, and maintaining distance
Since coronavirus has spread, the above three things have been the most practiced worldwide widely to contract the spread of covid 19.
Wear a mask
Masks are very safe products to wear to avoid bacterias. Mask blocks the possible ways through which the virus goes inside and infects a person. Such as mouth and nostrils. Everyone must wear a mask. When we talk to each other, water droplets come out from our mouths. These droplets can go straight to someone standing in front of us and there is a possibility that it might infect them. If you have no mask, then cover your mouth while sneezing with your arm.
Wash hands frequently
It is mandatory to wash hands after every 60 minutes. If you go outside for essential work, you must wash your hands right after coming back. According to the world health organization, you shall wash hands by singing “Happy birthday to you” thrice. Do not use soap that everyone uses; use handwash as it is incredibly safe.
The covid is spreading due to public gatherings. According to experts and health Agencies, we must maintain at least a distance of five feet. Avoid going to singing concerts, cinemas, shopping malls, and restaurants. There must be temperature screening kiosks at specific points to check the temperature.
Home care for Covid 19
During covid 19, home is the only place where we spend most of our time. So it is better to take safety measures at home to avoid the spread of Covid-19. Separate the dishes and bedsheets for everyone. Clean the door handles and locks of the house with alcohol-based liquid.
If anyone’s family has mild symptoms, immediately quarantine him/her and contact the health care provider. Safety measures must be ignored while providing necessary things to the patient. For the safe side, keep the PPE kit at home.
Lockdown as precaution
After trying everything, the government around the world switched lockdown to curb the covid. The government implemented various types of restrictions. During the lockdown, many governments shut down everything except essential needs such as food and medications. In a lockdown, the government allows people to travel to a certain limited distance and traveling for crucial things.
Many governments and health agencies suggested the partial lockdown, also known as a smart lockdown. In this lockdown, specific areas are close where saturation of cases is more—the complete lockdown results in economic loss in many emerging countries.
Covid 19 has affected millions of people so far now and is increasing rapidly. Now in November 2020, many countries have witnessed the second wave of coronavirus. The only way, for now, is prevention. Many companies and health agencies are in search of treatment for this novel coronavirus.
