Amid weather change and H2N3 spread, Covid-19 cases are also on rise in India. A total of 1,890 new Covid cases have been logged on Sunday in India, which is the highest in the last 149 days. According to the Health Ministry data, there are currently 9,433 active cases in the country. Delhi and Mumbai are the biggest contributors to the daily tally. As the cases are on a rise again, it has now become crucial to follow all necessary precautions to control the spread. Adapting these precautions on time can help reduce the level of exposure that the virus might cause. To help you and your loved ones stay safe, here are a few tips that might help.
1. Keep vaccination up-to-date
Getting vaccinated against Covid-19 can help your body fight the virus. Vaccinated individuals are also less likely to develop severe complications due to the virus. If you are still not vaccinated with a booster dose, get one immediately.
2. Do not skip the mask
Face masks have become a necessity since the beginning of the pandemic. But with a drop in cases over the past few months, many stopped wearing one. Now, it is time to wear those masks again. Wearing a mask will also help you prevent H2N3 influenza.
3. Hand hygiene
Infected particles can easily transfer from your hands to your eyes or nose. Washing hands with soap and water regularly can help prevent the transfer of infection. You can also use hand sanitizer.
4. Avoid gatherings
Gatherings and crowded places can easily spread the virus. As festivities are going on, there is a high possibility for you to be at a gathering. Therefore, it is best to avoid these gatherings to keep yourself safe.
Also, when outside follow social distancing.
