How important personal hygiene is to fight against covid-19?

Joy Chatterjee

We know the virus is transmitted through direct contact with respiratory droplets of an infected person through coughing and sneezing, and touching surfaces contaminated with the virus. The virus may survive on surfaces for a few hours up to several days

Taking necessary precautionary measures will help us to fight the deadly virus. Precautionary measures such as the use of masks, maintaining social distance norms, and sanitizing hands and should be strictly followed.

Covid-19 case numbers and deaths were exponentially rising in India. We all have seen how effectively our corona warriors have fought the battle. The second wave was too powerful and the number of cases in a single day stretched our health community badly. Though the cases are now in control we are not in that environment where we can live like normal days. This is the time when we all need to come together and have a spirit by doing our bit in fighting against the disease. 

Have we ever questioned ourselves, why the second wave took this drastic shape? This happened because of ignoring personal hygiene, not having the right attitude, taking the virus as the normal flu, and not wearing the mask properly. When the cases came drastically down in January, people thought that the virus has gone and this resulted in a spike in the cases. As responsible citizens, we need to understand that our focus should be on maintaining personal hygiene not only for ourselves but for others also. Wherever we go, we should sanitize the area properly, maintain social distance, and wash our hands properly to win the war against the deadly virus. 

Keeping in mind the situation many brands stood up and launched products in the hygiene and safety category at affordable prices. One of the brands is Safekind, which was launched last year under Mankind Pharma. 

During the starting of this year, people started traveling as a downfall was seen in the cases during that time and during those unprecedented times, Mankind Pharma took an initiative for Indian females by launching a toilet seat disinfectant spray.

The main purpose is to prevent UTI, which is becoming a common concern among women. The infection involves greater risk when one uses public washrooms that are often unclean and unhygienic. Apart from Toilet seats and toilet tops, it is important to spray the disinfectant on flush, faucets, doorknobs, and other hard surfaces to avoid the chances of getting infected.

Increase in COVID- 19 cases saw a spike and this generated a surge in the requirement of masks, sanitisers, and other COVID products as well.

The pandemic has caused tremendous disruption to lives and work processes. Irrespective of how severely or mildly it affects a person, it is still capable of wreaking havoc with our physical and mental fitness and ability to perform various tasks. In such a scenario, using hygiene and sanitation products and adhering to cleanliness can keep us safe from illness. 

People are requested to take utmost care of themselves by using masks, sanitisers and break the COVID- 19 chain which is a duty of every citizen, and don’t take safety for granted.
