3 Steps You Can Take to Protect Yourself from Virus Infections
Virus infections are everywhere - be it something as ordinary as the common cold or something as severe as coronavirus. You need to take certain measures to protect yourself from any kind of bacterial and viral infections. This holds particularly true if you have an old person, a pregnant woman, or a kid in your family, as they are more susceptible to viruses and bacteria. Lucky for you, modern technology makes it relatively easy to protect yourself. All you need to do is make tiny modifications to your lifestyle, and you can go through viral infections without ever visiting your doctor. Here’s how. 1. Spend 20 Seconds with Soap and Water Various viruses and bacteria are spread through small droplets from the nose and mouth that can further end up settling on various surfaces. Once you touch these surfaces, the microbes stick to your hands and wait for you to touch your nose, mouth, or eyes—sneaky viruses! So, you must wash your hands frequently, especially after you come back home after going out. The general rule of thumb for washing your hands is to wash them for at least 20 seconds using soap liberally. Don’t have a stopwatch on hand? Don’t worry. Sing the Happy Birthday song twice to time your handwashing session! And if you can’t find a sink and soap nearby, you should carry the Nerolac Hand Sanitizer with you. It is developed using a WHO-recommended formulation that is effective at reducing 99.99% viruses and bacteria on your hands while keeping your skin moisturised. 2. Masks are Trending Now Who knew the 2020 fashion statement would be facemasks? It is one of the tiny surprises of 2020. Masks have been proven to help with coronavirus infection prevention by up to 60%. The Indian health authorities, the World Health Organisation, and the Centre for Disease Control, recommend wearing masks as they can protect you and others around you from the coronavirus. Choosing the right mask isn’t so difficult. Choose a mask that fits your face well, and has multiple layers. You don’t need medical-grade masks like N-95 or surgical masks, leave them for the healthcare superheroes of our country. Instead, a simple multi-layered mask is enough. And if you are feeling creative, you can even stitch up a mask for yourself and your family! 3. Protecting High-Touch, High-Risk Surfaces If we talk about high-touch points in homes, we may miss out on some common ones. Have you ever thought about the largest high-risk surface in your home - home walls? These need disinfecting as well. But can you rely on disinfectant sprays and brooms and mops to keep these surfaces clean? Not at all! You need an antiviral paint for your home walls instead. Paint your walls with Nerolac Excel Virus Guard. India’s First Antiviral Paint. Developed with Japanese Shiquy Technology, this antibacterial and antiviral paint reduces 99.9% of germs, viruses and bacteria for months without needing any kind of touch-ups or reapplications. Our Nerolac Excel Virus Guard Interior Paint comes with a premium fabric finish that gives it a lush European feel to touch. So while it reduces viruses and bacteria, it’s also pleasant to touch for you and your family. You are protected from viruses and bacteria when you go out thanks to sanitisers and masks, but what about when you are at home? While disinfectant sprays can protect you and your dear ones from viral risks inside, even they have limitations. The ability to kill or reduce viruses and bacteria is short-lived. So paint up your walls at the earliest and enjoy a beautiful finish while it reduces harmful bacteria and viruses from your house. Whatsapp ‘virusguard’ to 70450 60000 to know more.
