We had witnessed a severe shock for which even the history was not prepared to write. The recent covid-19 pandemic has devasted the world from its core to the surface and had impacted every sector. Even when we see a silver lining in the improvement of the condition of this pandemic, we cannot be careless enough to invite a second and a third wave for serving mankind. Now when the situation is more stabilized, we must make sure to follow the proper hygienic rules in order to eradicate it forever from our lives.

Covid-19 has been considered a virus that can travel through air and droplets. It has also been found that it has the retention capacity to stay on some objects as long as 28 days.

2. Washing and sanitizing our hands at proper intervals and before eating is the only possible way to rule out the coronavirus. Hands should be washed for at least 60 seconds cleaning in between the fingers and if sanitizer is used it should have an alcohol percentage of more than 70%. The best way is to use an automated sanitizer dispenser to avoid touching the nozzle of the bottles.

While still wearing them, the outer surface gloves we washed thoroughly under running water with soaps or sanitizers. The inner surface should be then turned inside out and soaked in soap or sanitizing solution for at least 5 minutes or can be put in an ultra-wave for further sanitization.

4. Shoes are essential to be sanitized with a UVC shoe sole sterilizer whether in-home or office to prevent free entry of the virus along with our shoes.

5. Washing the fruits and vegetables thoroughly and cooking them at the optimum temperature. A homemade meal is the best option available at this moment to avoid being exposed to the virus.

6. It is always best to get wash the clothes immediately after coming home and try to sanitize every object from money to purse to mobile phones. Offices and mass gathering places should use a humidifier fogging machine to ensure the safety of the employees.
