How To Survive This Pandemic

Updated on June 9, 2020

Is Coronavirus the Worst Virus of All Time?

Well with the pressure rising in the world and increasing number of cases, The people have started considering the corona virus as the worst virus in the world history. It could be true as it has infected many people including athletes and politician but this is not the only virus that has done this. In 1918 the deadly outbreak of influenza tore across the globe infecting more than 500 million people out of which 20-30 million people end up being dead. On the other hand corona virus has just infected 8 million people out which about 3.5 million has recovered. The reason is that unlike other viruses COVID-19 have 3 stages going from normal to mild and then from mild to severe. Almost most of the people infected from this virus had mild symptoms and recovered soon by following the precautionary steps.

Below I have discussed some important steps that have been proved as a protection against this COVID-19.

Wash Your Hands

The first and most important prevention from not only COVID-19 but from any virus is to wash your hands plenty of time with good soap or sanitizer. Washing your hands, reduces your chance of getting infected to great extent because the one of the biggest source of spreading of COVID-19 is through touching.

The researcher has found that to kill any virus or bacteria from your hands you have to wash your hands for at least 20 sec and the other thing is to sanitize more often. These steps are the proven and will greatly reduce your chance of getting infected from the virus.

Use Face Mask

COVID-19 can survive in air for a while and could get into the body of the healthy person. Many people were tested positive in COVID-19 but didn't noticed any symptoms. So you may or may not know the person you are going to met is infected or not. So best thing you can do is to put a face mask. Although its more important that the man who is infected use it because his coughing droplets can go in air to some distance but WHO has advised everybody to use face mask until we get rid of the virus.

The other safety gear is gloves. If you are in habit of shaking hands and tapping shoulder etc. Then it is highly recommended to use gloves too. Once used can not be used twice so dispose the gloves after using it in some safe environment.


Stay At Home

In this pandemic it is highly recommended that to stay home stay safe. As this virus spreads from person to person, So if you will hangout just for fun or for meeting with friends then there is a high percentage of chance that you will end up getting infected by this virus. Many countries have imposed lockdown in their cities to force people stay at home but unfortunately many of us are not taking this virus a serious issue and as result becoming the source of spreading this infection.

While staying at home you have a good opportunity to learn or master new skills and work online to earn money I already have a blog regarding this on my page.


Eat Healthy

With observations and research it has been found that people with good immune system has greater chance of recovery from this virus. Good immune system of the body produces the cells which helps the body to combat against the virus. Eating healthy foods like orange have high quantity of Vitamin-C which boosts your immune system and acts as a protection against the disease.

Other Healthy Food includes:

  • Strawberries
  • Garlic
  • Yogurt
  • Spinach


No Smoking

Smokers have greater risk of getting corona virus because they touch their lips and face more often. They constantly touch their lips which can cause the virus to be transmitted into their mouth and infect that person. Smoking also cause damage to lungs which could increase the chance of severe corona virus. So it would be a good opportunity for a smoker to leave his bad habit and move toward a healthy life style.

WHO Guidelines to Control Craving:

  • Delay as long as you can before giving in to your urge.

  • Take 10 deep breaths to relax yourself from within until the urge passes.

  • Drinking water is a healthy alternative to sticking a cigarette in your mouth.

  • Do something else to distract yourself: Take a shower, read, go for a walk, listen to music!
