Coronavirus or also referred to as the Human Papilloma Virus is one of the most common viruses to hit the general population in recent years. The virus was first identified in a woman in New York City in the late 1970’s. Hand hygiene is so important to preventing Coronavirus that it’s an essential part of staying healthy.
We know that hand washing is an important part of staying healthy and infection free; and this includes health care workers. Hand Hygiene is important because it protects against other viruses like the Human Papilloma Virus. In fact, hand Hygiene is an important aspect of preventing illness and disease and helping to reduce the chances of being infected with the dreaded Human Papilloma Virus. Unfortunately, the disease is still one of the most contagious viruses and can be contracted by health care workers on a daily basis. As much as people need to be diligent when it comes to their health, there is no way we can completely avoid the disease.
It’s estimated that every day that health care workers are coming into contact with this virus. That means every time you touch your mouth with someone else’s or when you open up your mouth, your body is in contact with the virus. This means that any time you touch a hospital tray or a dental table, your body is at risk. The virus also spreads through contact with things like mouthwash, lip balm, and towels.
The virus spreads in different ways, but all of them require you to come in direct contact with your eyes, nose, and mouth. Therefore, when you work with people, make sure they wash their hands thoroughly with soap and water, especially if they come in close contact with another patient’s face. Also, make sure that when you are working with patients and they are not wearing protective masks, that you wash your hands immediately before and after touching their face.
Because the virus is transmitted through the mouth, health care workers who have to touch a patient’s face should wear goggles or a face mask to prevent infection. This is especially important for people who touch infected wounds, but can also apply this to patients who are having surgery. and those who may have a pre-existing eye or respiratory problem.
When it comes to preventing this virus, there are some simple ways to improve hand washing. You may think you are doing everything right and you have taken precautions, but if the virus has been allowed to spread into your hands and you do not wear a face mask, it’s time to get out your hand wash and start using a HEPA filter, especially when getting ready for medical procedures or if you are near other people. The HEPA filter has the best protection against the infection of the virus.
In addition to hand wash, you may want to consider using an alcohol-based hand wash because it does not only remove the virus, it kills bacteria and other germs that are still present in your hands. If you are in an area where the virus spreads, you should wear a cover on your hands to keep it away from you. However, if you are in a treatment room where the virus is contained, you should keep your hands covered with a face mask.
The virus is a serious health threat to those who are infected with it, but it can also pose serious health risks to those health care workers that may come into contact with it. By following these simple steps, you can help prevent infection and the spread of this virus.
