The World Health Organization has declared the coronavirus a pandemic. The infection continues to spread worldwide, rendering over 200,000 confirmed cases and at least 8,000 people dead. These are the preventive measures for protecting yourself and your loved ones.  The World Health Organization has recommended the following basic five steps for protection against the coronavirus;

1. Hands – Wash Them Often

The best way to protect yourself against COVID-19 is by frequently cleaning your hands with soap and water or sanitizers.  By doing this, you eliminate viruses that may be on your hands.

2. Elbow – Cough into it

The coronavirus spreads primarily through droplets when coughing, sneezing, saliva or nasal discharge.  As such, cough into your elbow to protect others from infection and avoid close contact with anyone coughing or sneezing.

3. Face – Don’t Touch It

Not touching your eyes, mouth and nose prevents the viruses that may be on your hands from reaching your respiratory system.  

4. Space – Keep a safe distance

Staying at least 6-feet away from other people lessens your chance of catching COVID-19. 

5. Home – Stay if you can

Limiting your exposure to other people is a good way to protect yourself.  

Stock up on groceries, medicine, essential items and resources and avoid venturing outdoors.

8. Sing-along!

An amazing way to uplift and revive your spirit during lockdown could be through music.  Get the musician of your home to trace a few melodies on the piano or guitar for everyone to sing along with you!  Or simply find karaoke videos on YouTube.

9. Work Out

As we all know, it is not necessary to hit the gym to stay fit.  Exercise at home, or at your own backyard.

Longing for a bit of sea breeze?  Why not ride along the coast?  The whole Sunset Coast Bicycle Trail runs along the coastline from the suburb of Munster to Burns Beach.

13. Podcasts

Tuning out and falling into a shocking but most interesting podcast can be just the thing for you during the lockdown.  True crime stories are a favourite!
