To put an end to the spread of novel coronavirus, it is important to identify the most common ways of contracting it and learning how to wash it off. Among other things, the virus spreads through hands, clothes, plastic and metallic objects. Here are some tips on how to wash off your contact with the virus.

  1. COVID-19 spreads when the virus enters your body through your nose, mouth and eyes. Most often, the virus spreads through hands

       2. Wash your hands for at least 30 seconds with soap and water

       3. Make sure to scrub between your fingers, under your fingernails and the back of your hands

       4. Rinse thoroughly with running water

       5. In case soap and water are not accessible, use hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol for 30 seconds

       6. If you come in contact with an infected person or touch contaminated objects, germs can get onto your outer clothing

       7. Wash your clothes in warm water (least 60°C temperature)

       8. Use bleach-based products for cleaning

       9. Wash heavily-soiled clothing separately

     10. Use gloves to handle unwashed clothing

     11. Wash your hands thoroughly after washing clothes
 

     12. The virus can stay on plastic and metallic surfaces for two to three days. It is important to clean all objects used by multiple people after every use

     13. If the object is not prone to easy corrosion, use spray cleaners or cleansing solutions to clean it

     14. For electronic objects, first, turn off the device and clean it with a wipe containing at least 70 percent alcohol

     15. To clean camera lenses and spectacles, use a microfibre cloth dipped in soap and water

To prevent the spread of the virus, the best tip is to stay home and stay safe.
