Hygiene Practice May Reduce 50% Infections And Death After COVID-19

The coronavirus has taken the form of an epidemic from a simple virus in the last five months. The virus, originated from a small city in China, has spread to more than 200 countries of the world today. So far, this virus, which has killed 2 million 76 thousand people by infecting more than 40 lakh people, will be controlled or eradicated one day. Still, the lessons it has given to the world, it can prevent further diseases, will make us successful in fighting and winning. You will be shocked to know that every day around 2000 people die worldwide due to frequent infections caused by viruses and bacteria.

At the same time, 90% of the people in developing countries continue to get treatment due to these diseases throughout their life. According to new research, if we continue this practice of hygiene even after the coronavirus is over, it will reduce the risk of common infection by 50% in the future. Not only this, but dependence on antibiotics will also be reduced by around 30% worldwide. This study has been published in the American Journal of Infection Control. The Global Hygiene Council has prepared this research paper.

How will the coronavirus change the world?


After the end of the coronavirus, we will see a sweeping change in almost all parts of the world. People have understood how viruses and bacteria harm their lives, so many people will now wear hand sanitizer, regular hand wash and mask as part of their lives. Apart from this, it is possible that we have to follow social distancing continuously for the next 2-3 years because this is the only way to defeat the virus and avoid it. Scientists believe that if we continue this practice, we can prevent many fatal diseases.

How will these habits help protect against diseases?


Due to the habit of washing hands several times a day and using the hand sanitizer at the public place, the viruses and bacteria present around will not enter your body, reducing the risk of food poisoning to hundreds of infections and diseases. Apart from this, the habit of wearing a mask while going out of the house will also prove very beneficial (especially for those who live in polluted cities). Pollution causes respiratory diseases, lung diseases, cancer, diabetes, eye diseases, kidney and liver diseases, even heart diseases.
