Julio Cachay, Internist and Infectious Diseases Specialist of our clinic reminds us of some precautions in order not to lower our guard and avoid infections.
As cases of Covid-19 have increased in recent days, it is important to continue with biosafety measures to avoid complications with our health and getting infected or infect our loved ones.
You should continue:
- Washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds, whenever necessary. You must do it before and after going out on the street.
- Using the mask properly. Covering all your nose, mouth, and chin. Do not take off the mask unless it feels damp since when it gets wet it loses particle filtration efficiency. Discard it and put on a new one.
- When taking off the mask, disinfect your hands and do not touch the front part, then dispose of it in a paper bag.
- In the street, avoid touching your face and eyes. Do not greet with a kiss, hand, or elbow. The new variant of coronavirus is very contagious and it is important to always keep a physical distance of 1.50 meters between people.
