Business, education and social life have reopened in different parts of the world after Covid-19 lockdown and multiple protective measures. Now employers and education institutions are even more responsible to secure the safety of their teams and students.
What is the role of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and how can you ensure the timely and cost-effective supplies of high-quality certified PPE?
Scientific evidence suggests that the risk of airborne virus transmission is especially high in the first 48 hours after infection. At that time people don’t know they are infected and are transmitting the coronavirus. Also, many people who are contagious have no symptoms. Masks of different type can help stop the spread of coronavirus. They can protect you from getting infected as well as from spreading the infection.
The best way for people to prevent the spread of the coronavirus infection and decrease the risk of getting sick is by washing their hands with soap and hot water. If soap and water are not available, alcohol-based hand sanitizers that contain at least 60% alcohol are effective in killing the novel coronavirus. Consumers are advised not to make their own hand sanitizer because if made incorrectly it can be ineffective or cause skin burns.Customize the look of your media by making it widescreen or small and easily align media inside your posts.
Gloves can offer protection, but only if used the right way. For instance, people are recommended to use gloves if they need to touch something that may be contaminated. Then the gloves should be taken off right away. Disposable gloves should not replace basic hygiene rules like regular hand washing and protecting the mouth and nose with a mask.
