Quarantine implies social isolation, that is, minimizing the contacts of all family members living in the same room. The goal is to reduce the peak load on the hospital bed, maximally stretching in time. The epidemic will decline after the passage of the plateau period, when an equally high number of infected people will be recorded for about 10 days. At the same time, sunny weather will contribute to the sterilization of the environment, while cool and humid weather is favorable for the survival of the virus and its transmission by airborne droplets.
The microbiologist shared with readers the basic rules of home quarantine.
Hygiene During Quarantine
Tip number 1
Treat with an antiseptic everything that enters the house, as well as door handles and elevator buttons. In the hallway, it is advisable to have a wet rug with a chlorine-containing disinfectant and leave shoes on it.
Council number 2
Go to the store / pharmacy with disposable gloves. Upon returning home, without removing gloves, process everything that you touched in the process, including bag handles or grocery bags.
First take off your clothes and shoes and only then gloves that immediately sterilize in a plastic container with a chlorine-containing disinfectant. Or make a soap-soda solution: 1 bar of 70% was washed in 2 liters of water, cook until dissolved, add 2 tablespoons of soda, warm. Floors can be treated with the same solution.
Council number 3
Treat the paws with an animal solution of food grade 9% vinegar – 1 tablespoon per glass of water.
Tip number 4
Wash your face only after washing your hands. At night, smear your hands with a nourishing cream, and if the skin is very dry – put on special cotton gloves.
Tip number 5
Do not use antibacterial soap to wash your body, keep your microflora – it is your protection.
Tip number 6
Wear masks indoors, change them every 2-3 hours. Wearing masks on the street, if there is no close contact with people, does not make sense.
Tip number 7
Rinse your nose and gargle with any saline solution, for example, 9 grams of salt per liter of boiled water.
Council number 8
Order products with home delivery. If you go to the store, spend there no more than 10 minutes. Give preference to products in the factory packaging.
Ventilate the apartment, breathe fresh air. On sunny days, walk in sparsely populated places. The best option is a summer house.
Eat balanced. Important: protein, animal fats, high-quality vegetable oils of the first extraction, fish oil, greens, cruciferous, whole grain products. Drink water, fruit drinks and herbal teas. Replace sugar with honey.
Make a stock of products for 4 weeks. As the number of infected people increases, the probability of infection will increase with every contact / visit to public places. During this period, do not leave the house without special need. Stock up with superfoods and vegetables – greens can be frozen, and sauerkraut is an excellent option for long-term storage.
Get enough sleep, 22.00 – a great time to go to bed.
Take vitamin complexes with vitamin D, but consult with your doctor before doing this.
Do Breathing Exercises
Thanks to regular breathing exercises you will become stronger and less susceptible to any infections!
Simultaneously with inspiration, movements are performed that cause compression of the chest. As a result, the vital capacity of the lungs after the first lesson increases by 0.1-0.3 liters, the gas composition of the blood normalizes, and the amount of oxygen in arterial blood rises sharply.
This is important to know!
It will be possible to check whether you were sick, having passed an analysis for the presence of antibodies.
In case of illness, you need to collect a bag with everything you need, including those medications that you take all the time.
If you have lung problems and serious concomitant diseases, then you are at risk.
If you get sick, you need to notify the environment about your status. Do not go into depression, but know that the disease will pass – according to statistics, 80% recover without visible complications.
