Ukrainians are reminded that distance is necessary even with the weakening of the quarantine
The physical distance must be respected even when the quarantine is weakened.
It is reported by the Center for Public Health on Facebook.
“Physical distance, also called” social distance “, means preserving the space between you and others. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the WHO recommends keeping a distance of at least 1 meter,” says the report. .
It should be noted that by keeping a distance from others, you protect yourself from their bodily fluids, which can penetrate you during coughing or sneezing.
In addition, physical distance is particularly important for people who are at a higher risk of complications related to COVID-19 (age over 50, presence of concomitant diseases).
According to the health care center, people can become infected with COVID-19 by hitting a surface or object with the virus with their hands, and then touching their mouth, nose or eyes. However, this is not considered to be the primary means of spreading the virus.
