Do you live with someone infected with coronavirus? Know what measures you should take at home – World


If you live with a patient infected with coronavirus, know that there are some tips and advice to deal with the situation.

The British Government’s Council on Public Health issued a document with some recommendations after the appearance of the new coronavirus variant.

Scientists advise to restrict visits to the home if there is a suspected / confirmed case of Covid-19, except in emergency or health situations.

Regular room ventilation is also essential: open the windows of the rooms where the infected family member spends more time, especially if they are shared with other members.

Shared rooms can be a risk of infection, so also keep a window slightly open at night for air circulation. If you have an infected family member, try to keep your distance and, if possible, sleep in a different room.

Also avoid doing activities that cause the release of particles into the air as a physical exercise.

Faced with an infection, it is necessary to pay attention to the sharing of objects and surfaces. Whenever possible, members should use different bathrooms. The same applies to the use of the kitchen, in which case the infected patient must use the kitchen at different times than the rest of the family.

Objects such as cutlery, crockery and towels should not be shared. The infected contact should, whenever possible, eat separately from the rest of the family.

In case of infection, try to wash clothes, towels and sheets more frequently and warm. Clean the bathroom frequently and whenever you use the toilet try to close the lid before flushing to minimize contamination of the environment.

The use of masks inside the home can also help to reduce transmission. If you need to care for the infected person, also wear gloves and eye protection.
