Due to the pandemic, Covid-19, many nations across the globe were badly affected to the core. Covid-19 taught us one thing, which is to maintain good hygiene at all times.
By maintaining proper hygiene, we can prevent the transmission of deadly viral and bacterial infections. Keeping that in mind, ILS Hospitals will explain you some hygiene tips that you must follow to prevent infections.
Follow these hygiene tips to avoid the spread of infections:
Maintain good personal hygiene: Personal hygiene is foremost important. Brush and floss your teeth daily. Take a bath or shower with soap every day. Wash your hair once or twice a week. Due to summer season, you might have to shower twice a day because of excessive perspiration. Wear clean clothes and undergarments daily. Females should take note of their menstrual hygiene as well by changing the sanitary products from time to time.
Wash your hands at all times: There are millions of germs in our hands which are totally invisible to the human eyes. We do a lot of work with our hands so it’s essential to keep them clean. Wash your hands for 15-20 seconds with clear water and liquid soap after using the washroom, before and after eating, after coming from outside, and whenever your hands get dirty.
Live in a clean environment: Keep our surroundings clean. Clean your house daily. Throw the trash in the garbage bin. Do not forget to keep your washrooms hygienic.
Use tissue paper while coughing and sneezing: Always cough or sneeze on a disposable tissue paper. It is always best to wear a face mask while going outside if you have encountered flu so that you avoid transmitting the infection to others.
Do not share your personal items with anyone: Avoid sharing your personal items, like toothbrush, tongue cleaner, razor, comb, nail clippers, clothes, undergarments, innerwear, cosmetics, makeup brushes, soap, loofah and so on with others.
Do not touch your eyes, nose and mouth with uncleaned hands: If your hands are unwashed, you can easily pass on the germs inside your body by simply touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Never do that and we will say again, keep washing hands.
Always carry a hand sanitizer with you: Whenever you’re going outside, always carry a 70% alcohol containing hand sanitizer with you to be hygienic at all times.
