Coronavirus Lockdown: Things to do at home
COVID-19 is a virus that causes respiratory diseases and can lead to pneumonia in severe cases. If one has symptoms such as respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and trouble breathing, he/she may suffer from coronavirus. Serious cases of COVID-19 can also cause extreme acute respiratory syndrome and kidney failure. Such symptoms can be especially dangerous for elderly patients or people with chronic health conditions. In fact, individuals with some current medical problems are at a greater risk. Here’s a quick guide to what you can do and stop throughout your stay at home.
As coronavirus is taking hold of India, the central and state authorities are working in overdrive to try and curb the spread. In order to ease the spread of the deadly disease, 30 states, and the Union territories have been locked up.
Lockdown can be described as an emergency procedure that prevents people from leaving the area. A complete lockdown means that you must remain where you are and not exit or enter a building or a specified place. In addition, this situation typically helps vital products, grocery stores, pharmacies and banks to continue to serve people.

This is what you need to do when you are at home during the lockdown
1. The key is to follow a set schedule. Keep your eating and sleeping habits up and running. Don’t forget to workout at home because it can be beneficial to your physical and mental well-being.
2. Evitate fear or panic during the coronavirus outbreak. Instead of being afraid, obey all the safety steps. Only try to stay calm. Meditation or yoga will help you clear up all your worries. Do not start drinking or smoking if you are mentally disturbed.
3. Set a plan as to when you’re going to watch the news. Don’t drown yourself absolutely in this news, as it may be a matter of interest to you. Stick to trustworthy sources. Don’t pay much attention to the rumors. Strike your daily balance in your routine and protect yourself. Tell ‘NO’ to uncontrolled social media feed. Educate your children about coronavirus and help them learn about the various measures of protection. Encourage them to procure information from reputable sources rather than social media.
4. Keep in mind that you avoid binge eating while at home, and instead stick to healthy eating. Say no to fast food that can have an effect on your wellbeing. Go for green leafy vegetables, whole grain foods such as nuts and seeds, and a wide range of fresh fruits and vegetables, particularly for things like Vitamin C.
5. Do not come into contact with any family member who has a cold or a cough.
6. Wash your hands before cooking, eating, using a washroom or blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
7. Make sure you keep a limit of six feet even at home.
8. Clean frequently touched surfaces such as door handles, handrails, remote controls, and tabletops. This is especially relevant if you have an elderly or disabled person in your household. While washing, you can use the normal household items, such as detergents and bleach, because they will be very effective at removing the virus from the surface. Clean your house and washroom from time to time.
