WASH YOUR HANDS

And as often as you can. It goes without saying that you should wash your hands before eating and every time you travel by public transport or go shopping or to offices. Use soap and warm water and don't stop washing - hold it under the current for at least 20 seconds, thoroughly soap your palms and all fingers and the backs of your hands.

USE DISINFECTANT

Regularly disinfect things that can harbor bacteria. These are mainly those that you often touch, such as a mobile phone and headphones, a keyboard, a steering wheel, door handles, a favorite coffee cup and the like. Banknotes are a common carrier of the disease Covid-19, which is caused by the corona virus. So prefer to pay with a con tactless card.

WEAR A MASK

If you want to feel safe and reduce the risk of infection as much as possible, always carry a mask or respirator and put it on every time you are in a large number of people, for example in the supermarket, the post office, on public transport, in the cinema or when you pick up children from school and clubs .

GET YOUR VITAMINS ON

The basis is a varied and balanced menu, rich in vegetables and fruits. You should eat at least three pieces of fruit a day, and you can add fresh or cooked vegetables to every meal. Dietary supplements in the form of vitamins can also increase the body's defense, the best against viruses is vitamin C in combination with zinc. You can also use betaglucans and colostrum in the long term, and echinacea in the short term.

GO FOR WALKS

Keep your body in shape and allow it to walk in the fresh air for at least 30 minutes every day. You can go outside in any weather, even during colder days, and thus slightly harden yourself. This strengthens the immune system. In addition, moving outside is safer than working out in small closed rooms of gyms and exercise studios.

KEEP TESTS CLOSE AT HAND

Have you been visiting friends who then called to say they were sick? Or has one of your colleagues fallen ill? Do you feel something creeping up on you? In such cases, it is useful to have antigen tests for covid at hand. Thanks to these quick tests (which are not 100% reliable), you can easily find out how you and your family are doing from the comfort of your home. For home tests, the sample is taken from saliva or by gargling a saline solution.

VENTILATE

Overheated, unventilated spaces are an ideal breeding ground for the spread of viruses. Therefore, ventilate at home and in the office at least three times a day. The ventilation should be intensive and should last at least ten minutes in order to replace the maximum amount of old air with fresh air. This is the only way viruses will not accumulate in the room.

DON'T STRESS

Stress significantly weakens our organism and increases the likelihood of contracting various diseases, including the coronavirus. Therefore, especially during this period, try to stay calm and not take on too many responsibilities that burden you.

DO NOT TOUCH YOUR FACE

The virus enters the body through the mucous membranes. Therefore, do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth unless your hands have been thoroughly washed. When you sneeze or blow your nose, use disposable tissues and throw them in the trash after use. When coughing, it is not advisable to put your hand in front of your mouth, as is customary, but it is better to suppress your cough with a handkerchief or your forearm, this will prevent the spread of infection

SLEEP

Even in this ten, we must not forget to mention that quality sleep is absolutely essential for the proper functioning of the immune system. If you don't get enough sleep and rest, your body will be much more susceptible to viruses from the environment. Think about that when you go to bed tonight.

How the current mutation manifests itself

Currently, the omicron mutation occurs mostly in the every area. With the original mutations, it was relatively easy to tell that it was covid-19 because the symptoms were more specific. Those infected often lost their sense of smell and taste, had a cough and stuffy nose, and their joints and whole body ached. However, according to scientists, the symptoms of the omicron mutation are not so different from the common cold. The most common symptoms of omicron disease include cough, fatigue, headache and stuffy nose.
