How to Protect Ourselves from COVID-19

What can we do to protect ourselves and others from getting this new virus, COVID-19?  Can surgical masks protect us?  Do we need a vaccine against pneumonia or flu?  Here are ways to protect ourselves. WHO (World Health Organization) has recommended simple precautions so that we can reduce our chances of being infected:

Please check some TIPS below:

  • Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.
  • Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.  Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.  Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.
  • Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately. Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.
  • Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority. Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.
  • Keep up to date on the latest COVID-19 hotspots (cities or local areas where COVID-19 is spreading widely). If possible, avoid traveling to places  – especially if you are an older person or have diabetes, heart or lung disease.  Why? You have a higher chance of catching COVID-19 in one of these areas.

Can masks protect us? 

PROPER hand washing is very important!  Alcohol and hand sanitizers are alternatives if  water and soap are not available.

Vaccines against pneumonia and flu do not provide protection against COVID-19.  Check out more Myth Busters HERE published by WHO.

And of course, prayers are always powerful....


  1. As far as I know, you are looking for a food supplement for your pet. I am ready to share this site with you MJ CBD dispensary where can you order a medicine that will help your dog feel better and live a full life. This will probably be useful to you, because I also used this resource to order some products for better health.

  2. During covid I started smoking. I know it's very unreasonable, but I was very nervous, that's why it happened. Now I would like to quit smoking, but I can't. I even tried switching to smoking weed because I heard it helps.

  3. I don't smoke weed and I don't smoke anything at all. I don't see the point in it, because it is harmful. Try starting a CBN supplement. Interestingly, CBN is obtained from hemp, you can read more about it here, but CBN also helps reduce cravings for bad things, including smoking. I think this is the safe way.

  4. Hello! I have heard good things about cannabis formulations many times. But I personally can't use it due to an allergy to THC. Are there options without this component and will such panic remedies help me?

  5. Howdy! How's your search for a sedative? Have you already found preparations based on mushrooms? If not, I highly recommend reading about it - https://thirdshroom.com/product-category/magic-mushrooms/ There have been many studies on this subject and we have received a modern remedy for the treatment of stress and panic. It is quite suitable for home use.
