2. Using masks
The use of gloves isn’t the only method that can be used to put a stop to airborne infections such as the flu or the Coronavirus; the use of surgical masks have also shown promise when it comes to taking care of airborne infections – and the sales of surgical masks all over the world have gone up drastically as a result of the Coronavirus.
If you are going out in public, especially if you have a condition that affects your immune system, it can be a good idea to invest in a stack of surgical masks: These can help to stop droplets potentially containing infectious diseases (such as the Coronavirus) from reaching and infecting you.
It might not be 100% effective against stopping the spread but combined with other methods it can help to drastically reduce your risk – both against common diseases like colds or the flu and against more serious ones such as the Coronavirus outbreak of 2020.
