Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic is spreading very quickly. There are now around 95,390 people in Germany (as of April 6th, 2020) who are infected with the new virus. We hear about it all the time in the news or read about it online. However, it remains unclear what exactly the coronavirus is and where it came from. Nevertheless, it continues to do its mischief. In this difficult situation, most people are a little afraid that they could easily become infected. That is why the government has introduced curfews and social isolation. But the big question is what can each of us do to protect ourselves and our loved ones from coronavirus. We answer immediately: A lot actually! Everyone can help to contain the pandemic. Today we give you simple tips on how to prevent infection. On the one hand, these are easy to follow, on the other hand, they are all sensible and useful.

Here are some simple tips on how to protect yourself from coronavirus!

  • Washing your hands properly is the be-all and end-all of prevention and can protect you from coronavirus!

Good hand hygiene is the be-all and end-all of prevention and can protect you well against the new type of corona virus. The experts at the Robert Koch Institute and other virusologists recommend that we wash our hands thoroughly and frequently.

One should not forget the wrists, the spaces between the fingers and the nail bed. After washing our hands, we have to dry everything thoroughly with a clean cloth towel or rather with a disposable paper towel. It is also recommended to wash your hands for about 20 seconds, ideally humming the song "Happy Birthday" twice instead of looking at the clock! You can find more information about washing your hands properly here.

Wash your hands thoroughly and ensure good hand hygiene!

Teach your little ones to wash or sanitize their hands before every meal.

To prevent coronavirus you can also use a good disinfectant. But if you don't have one, you can wash your hands with a conventional soap or even better with a liquid soap. In addition, one must not touch the face with unwashed hands, more precisely the mouth, nose and eyes! Also, teach your toddlers not to eat with their hands. You must also learn to use cutlery and napkins. Avoid putting your hands on shopping trolleys, doorknobs and railings, use plastic gloves in these cases. COVID-19 viruses can easily get onto these surfaces, but they don't remain active for long. In principle, the following applies here: Avoid shaking hands, keep your distance from other people and limit contacts!

Surely you need a good disinfectant. However, a face mask can hardly protect you from coronavirus.

Face masks - yes or no? Expert opinions differ on this.

  • Can a face mask protect against coronavirus?

Opinions are divided on the need to wear a face mask in public. Many people wear these masks every time they go out of the house. However, the experts at the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) write that there is “insufficient evidence that wearing a mouth and nose protector significantly reduces the risk of infection for a he althy person who wears it”. The World He alth Organization (WHO) has also called on “not to wear a face mask if you are not ill yourself”. Such a mask is only a must for people who are already infected, because it allows them to protect other people from coronavirus. It is also emphasized that wearing face masks could create a false feeling that you are properly and 100% protected. This in turn could lead to other problems, such as neglecting hand hygiene. And that must not happen!
