Masks have never been enough. And now the epidemic (+ panic) has exacerbated the deficit. In addition, after all, other seasonal infections have not been canceled. For example, the flu has been and continues. Moreover, it can overlap with coronavirus infection.

  • But in fact, the mask is no longer needed not by the healthy, but by the sick , so as not to spread. Due to external symptoms (coughing, sneezing, accumulation of fluid in the nasopharyngeal cavity), he releases a concentrated mixture of viable viral particles with an aerosol cloud.
  • If such a "distributor" is near you, and you are not wearing a plague-resistant suit, but only wearing a mask, the chances of getting infected are the same as if without it. The mask does not fit snugly + you still have eyes, eyelids (which like to rub with your hands). And the pores in the mask will not stop the virus either (the pores are 2-3 microns, and the diameter of the viral particles is ten times smaller: they are like a sieve).
  • Honestly, the anti-plague suit will not save you either, if, after wandering among the potentially infected, you come home in it and start wandering around the apartment, rubbing against your home clothes, linen, and touching dishes. This is called poor personal hygiene, everyone is warned about it.
  • Ie entered, undressed, and into the bath for "disinfection": hands with soap, then face; mustachioed and bearded - relevant. Wash clothes more often, ventilate the apartment regularly + wet cleaning.
  • In transport, it is better to remain in gloves and do not take off your hat.
  • The mucous membranes of the nose are well protected by oxolinic ointment (the "workhorse" of the clinic staff and all local doctors).
  • Alcohol 95% dries, but does not disinfect. For this, 65-70% is better. But rubbing alcohol is not the best remedy for skin. Better disinfecting gels available in pharmacies
  • Conventionally - dirty things, incl. it is better to wipe products from the store not with alcohol, but with vinegar (food grade). He (divorced) can also floor and walls in the apartment.
  • Alcohol - inside, highly undesirable, because it kills the immune system immediately and for a long time
  • It is absolutely ideal if you find an opportunity (important for large cities with international airports) to work remotely, and transport children and elderly relatives "to the dacha", especially if it is Moscow. Don't go to school anyway.
  • If it's really scary without a mask, go to the nearest hardware store and freely buy masks there (they are reusable and filtered). It is difficult to walk in such a mask (it is dense). On the eyes you can use glasses for the pool or ski. But all this is nonsense without personal hygiene.

But, the most important thing is to maintain immunity (vitamins, nutrition), observe the daily regimen, and monitor your health. Practice shows that with the "crown" it is immunity that "takes out".
