Mask prevents us touching mouth and nose, don’t touch eyes, face shields can protect eyes

Listen to soft instrumental music for 15 to 20 mins before bed to calm the emotions and have a restful night . . .

The issue is sneezing and coughing.

Sneeze and cough into the inside of your T-shirt or shirt to avoid “infecting” others. The viral load is high in sneezing and coughing.

Rub hand sanitiser after that on your chest.

Maintain physical distancing. If not possible, wear mask.

The number of viral particles in normal breath or in the air is low. They are not enough to create high viral load.

The virus lies on surfaces, besides the hands, but they generally weaken and disappear.

It’s important to use hand sanitiser. The virus enters the body by the hand touching the mouth, nose and eyes.

The mask in fact prevents us touching the mouth and nose. Don’t touch the eyes. Face shields can perhaps protect the eyes.

Many people rub the eyes or nose several times a day. It’s just a habit.

According to a study in Malaysia, motorists stuck in traffic dig their nose.

In Japan, motorists in a similar situation get out and clean their windscreen.

Not every mask is equal, and if you really want to protect other people and help to reduce the spread of coronavirus, you really need to think about what you’re putting on your face.

The findings are reported in Science Advances.
