Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds particularly after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. You can also use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available. Spread it all across your hands and rub them together until they feel dry. Learn how to make your own sanitizer.

  • Wear a facemask if you feel sick - It is a must to wear a facemask when you are around people and in case you are unable to procure it from the market make a DIY Facemask. Cover your cough, sneezes and make other people wear a facemask too. 
  • Clean and disinfect - It is a must to clean and sanitize frequently touched surfaces like tables, light switches, doorknobs, phones, laptops, sinks, etc. Make use of detergents and soaps for thorough disinfection.
