Emergency publicity flyerLet's know the new corona measures that each one can do!

What is Coronavirus?
 So far, seven types of "coronavirus" that infect humans have been found, and one of them is the so-called "new coronavirus (SARS-CoV12)" that has been a problem since December last year.Of these, four types of viruses account for 2 to 10% of common colds (15% during the epidemic), and most are mild.The remaining two viruses are "Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS)" that occurred in 35 and "Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS)" that has occurred since 2002.Coronavirus infects all animals, but rarely (rarely) infects other animals of different species.In addition, it is known that the infectivity is lost by alcohol disinfection (2012%).
How do you get infected?
At present, there are two possibilities: droplet infection (Hitotsukansen) and contact infection.
(XNUMX) Droplet infection The virus is released along with the droplets (sneezing, coughing, brim, etc.) of the infected person, and other people inhale it by mouth or nose and become infected.
  * Scene to be careful of infection: When spending a certain amount of time indoors, etc., where there is not enough distance between each other.
(XNUMX) Contact infection After an infected person holds his / her sneeze or cough with his / her hands, he / she touches the surrounding objects with his / her own hands, and the virus of the infected person is attached. When an uninfected person touches that part, the virus of the infected person attaches to the hand of the uninfected person and can be transmitted without directly contacting the infected person.
  * Examples of infected areas: straps for trains and buses, doorknobs, escalator railings, switches, etc.

What are the new coronavirus infectious disease measures that each person can do?

 First of all, please keep in mind general infectious disease measures and health management.
Specifically, wash your hands with soap or disinfect your hands with alcohol for hand disinfection to avoid congested areas as much as possible. It is also important to get enough sleep.
 Also, avoid places with a lot of people.Please be careful when spending a certain amount of time indoors when you cannot secure a sufficient distance from each other.

(XNUMX) Hand wash

How to wash your hands properly 

By touching various objects such as doorknobs and train straps, it is possible that the virus is attached to your hands. Wash your hands every time you go home, before or after cooking, and before meals.

(XNUMX) Regular health management

 Always try to get enough sleep and a well-balanced diet to boost your immunity.

(XNUMX) Maintain an appropriate humidity

 When the air dries, the mucous membranes of the throat lose their protective function.In a room that is easy to dry, use a humidifier to maintain appropriate humidity (50-60%).

■ In order not to pass on to other people

<Cough etiquette>

Cough etiquette 

Cough etiquette is the use of a mask, tissue, handkerchief, sleeves, or the inside of the elbow to hold the mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing in order to prevent the infection from infecting others.
 There is a high risk of face-to-face contact between people (the distance that can be reached when reaching each other is about XNUMX m), but in an environment where many people interact with each other for a certain period of time or longer.Avoid going to an infectious environment and wash your hands and cough etiquette thoroughly.

Those who need it for reference can also make it by hand.
