5 simple steps to protect you and your family from the 2020 Wuhan Coronavirus outbreak | Korean Aesthetic Clinic

WUHAN

W: Wear a mask when in close contact with others. Better to keep yourself safe then save a mask

U: Understand that the virus is not airborne so stay calm

H: Hand hygience is the key

A: Avoid crowded places

N: Never touch your face unnecessarily. Your face is a no go zone.


Coronavirus

W: Wear a mask

A mask is useful to prevent droplet spread, but it is only useful if one doesnt remove the mask and scratch your nose, eyes, face without washing your hands.

U: Understand that the virus is not airborne.

This means you do not need to don an N95 Mask against this virus.

A: Avoid crowded places.

The risk of human to human transmission of the virus increases.

H: Hygience – Both hand hygience and droplet hygience

Washing your hands is vital to prevent the spread of this virus. The virus resides and feeds on your respiratory secretions ( for example, your sputum and your mucus). Simple water and soap will remove the virus and its medium (your mucus) and the virus will die. Alochol based handrubs also help to dehydrate and kill the virus.

N: Never touch your face unnecessarily. Your face is a no go zone.

We cannot stress this enough. Your face is like a demilitarised zone and here, there is a lack of defence against invading forces. The virus can enter your body via the mucous membrane of your eyes, nose, mouth etc… Families with kids do take note and remind your children to avoid touching their faces.


Singapore

People are afraid and fear causes us to make irrational decisions. Hoarding masks and alcohol rubs, raising prices, spreading fake news, being secretive about your travel history to China, sending your unwell kids to school etc… Its times like these where we need to stop judging others, but actively cooperate to share limited resources and disseminate helpful, honest information. Working hand in hand to both educate and protect ourselves and our families against this growing health threat. Then, and only then, will we be able to keep our homes and families safe. Dont pray for an easy life. Pray you can be of help to ease another’s life.
