The pandemic caused by the new coronavirus has changed our habits and routines of life, including our essential hygiene care. Going to the street and returning home became risky actions that require new cleaning and disinfection care for most of the population.
In this manual you can find some basic measures that, within the scope of COVID-19, help prevent contamination and reduce the spread of the virus.
COVID-19 is the name, attributed by the World Health Organization, to the disease caused by the new coronavirus SARS-COV-2, which can cause severe respiratory infection such as pneumonia.
It is considered that COVID-19 can be transmitted:
- By respiratory droplets (particles larger than 5 microns);
- By direct contact with contaminated surfaces.
Person-to-person transmission has been confirmed and is thought to occur during close exposure to a person with COVID-19, through the spread of respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or speaks, which can be inhaled or landed in the mouth, nose or eyes of people who are close.
Contact of the hands with a surface or object with COVID-19, and then contact with the oral, nasal or ocular mucous membranes (mouth, nose or eyes), can lead to the transmission of the infection
