The COVID-19 outbreak will not end soon. It has been announced as being a global pandemic, and people from all around the globe are spreading awareness of preventing the new coronavirus. Right now, all you can do is basic hygiene. You will need to wear gloves, masks and wash your hands frequently.
It is essential to follow basic hygiene, and people started to ignore the danger of the devices that they use every day, like smartphones or laptops. They do not acknowledge the fact that viruses and bacteria are everywhere on laptops and smartphones. It’s essential to follow some hygienic practices to stay healthy.
How To Prevent Contracting The New Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Clean your devices
We cannot stress this enough. Sanitize your gadgets, especially those you use daily, like your smartphone. Use hand sanitizer with a minimum of 60% alcohol. But make sure that before you do that, your device is IP certified for water resistance. Also, it is not recommended to use any kind of cleaning product on display directly.
Use your headphones to answer calls
It is good to have a pair of earphones or headphones with you at all times. You will not touch the display, and the viruses will stay away from your face, this way. Also, remember to clean your headphones or earphones from time to time, by using hand sanitizer.
Use voice commands
Instead of touching your phone, you could rely on voice commands, which will do whatever you want, without you actually touching the screen. Voice assistants, like Siri and Google Assistant, can get the tasks done for you. They will help you a lot.
Don’t share your devices
Make sure you avoid sharing your tools with others because there is an increased risk of using other person’s laptops or smartphones. If you do need to share devices, make sure you clean them after use and don’t forget to wash your hands to prevent the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
