Dear Editor, Through your esteemed daily, I would like to share few steps to protect oneself from getting infected from corona virus. Practice good hand hygiene and minimize how often you touch your face. Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use a hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol before touching your face or eating. When using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, make sure to rub it in until your hands are completely dry. Avoid touching surfaces with fingertips. Your fingertips are the part of your hand most likely to transmit a virus, because they’re the part most often used to touch your nose or mouth. Instead of a finger, use an object such as a pen, or even your knuckle, to press an elevator button. Open doors with an elbow or the back of a hand. Clean your hands before touching your smart phone. Mobile phones may not be public surfaces, but studies have shown that they too can harbor bacteria, viruses, and other germs. Clean your mobile daily with a disinfectant. It’s just a matter of precautions and maintaining hygiene. Together we can, let us just stay safe and make people aware about the precautions need to be taken. Sugandh Sharma, Jammu.
