Simple measures that can be applied at home, especially hygiene, in the fight against coronavirus can be of great importance to eliminate the risk of transmission of the disease. Sabri Ülker Foundation aims to raise public awareness on this issue with the important information it compiles from international reference institutions.

While coronavirus (COVID-19) causes anxiety due to the speed of transmission, the anxiety of infecting the disease increases, especially in people who have had the disease at home. According to the information compiled by Sabri Ülker Foundation, the risk of transmitting the disease to others can be minimized with some basic measures that can be taken at home. In addition to isolation at home, the possibility of developing an action plan against COVID-19 and preventing the disease can be eliminated by preventive measures.

Those who live with their family should isolate themselves in case of doubt

  • Make sure only one person deals with the sick family member. Make sure that the person you designate does not have any chronic disease, if possible.
  • Pay attention to the use of common areas, do not use as common, if possible, and ensure that the patient does not use the same toilet as other family members. If shared, disinfect after each use.
  • Place the patient in a room where you can ventilate well and stay alone.
  • Always ventilate common areas regularly. Disinfect frequently contacted surfaces such as door handles and light switches.
  • Take care of hand hygiene. Wash hands frequently, especially after contact with the patient, or after contact with any surface the patient touches, before and after food preparation, before eating, after using the toilet.
  • Use a mask and gloves when cleaning the patient's room.
  • Wash the textile products of the patient such as bed linen, towels, pajamas with regular laundry detergent at regular intervals at 60-90 ° C.
  • Keep a waste bag for used face masks and other waste in the patient's room.
  • Do not accept any visitors home until the patient has fully recovered.
  • Have the patient always wear a medical mask and reduce the risk of passing the disease to other family members at home. Make sure that the mask used is changed at least once a day. The rooms of people who have difficulty wearing the mask should be aired more frequently, be more careful when coughing or sneezing and they should be provided to repeat hand hygiene more frequently.

Action Plan and Preventive Actions Make You Easier to Overcome the Process

In addition to isolation at home, you can create an action plan against COVID-19 and minimize the risk of getting sick with preventive measures.

  • If you live alone, keep in touch with your family and friends by phone or e-mail and list the phone of people you can reach in a possible situation.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Do not go out when you feel sick, except for medical help.
  • Use the elbow inside or napkin when coughing and sneezing, and then wash your hands.
  • Clean frequently contacted surfaces such as benches, door handles and tables daily.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • When your hands are visibly dirty, take care to wash them with soap and water.
  • Do not touch your face with your hands without washing your hands.
  • If you feel unwell, isolate yourself from other family members and do not leave your room.
  • If you feel unwell, use a mask to protect other family members at home.
  • If you feel unwell, do not share your personal belongings with the household.
