The World Health Organization declared the situation with the world-wide coronavirus almost a month ago, but many people have not yet realized the dangers of this definition.
Despite the fact that almost all countries of the world have already been quarantined and banned from entering and leaving their territories, many people continue to ignore the prohibitions of the authorities and violate the rules of self-isolation, endangering themselves and others. Especially for those who have not yet realized how serious everything is, experts have named the 3 most important things that are not worth doing. At least until the coronavirus pandemic is over.
1) Smoking is now more dangerous than ever
The lungs of a smoker already suffer from poisoning with toxic substances and lack of oxygen, and infection Covid-19 and at all can become fatal for people with bad habits.
Experts advise to think about how dangerous smoking is and make every effort to get rid of the desire to take cigarettes in your hands. Perhaps it will help to maintain health and even save lives.
2) You can’t go out without a mask
But healthy people don’t have to wear it. Those who have already contracted the infection, as well as people who have to care for sick people, are obliged to cover their faces.
At the same time, you can’t use a disposable mask several times in a row. That’s what it’s all about!
3) You can’t take antibiotics
It is, of course, about self-medication. If you start coughing or feel a hunk in your body, you should never run to the pharmacy for antibiotics! Take any medication always necessary under the supervision of a doctor, and during a pandemic – even more so!
“If you have fever, cough and shortness of breath, see your doctor as soon as possible to prevent the risk of developing a more serious infection” – strongly advised experts, stressing that antibiotics are unable to resist viruses, as they treat only bacterial infections. Covid-19 is a virus, which means that even a strong antibiotic will not be able to resist it.
Antibiotics should not be used as a means of prevention. Such drugs will only weaken the immunity of a healthy person, making him even more vulnerable to infection.
Take care of yourself and remember that the most coronavirus infection is exposed to people of old age, men, as well as those who suffer from excess weight. And recently, a French doctor named another risk factor – they turned out to be a beard and mustache.
