The ones recommended in the corona virus protection guide published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention became the agenda on social media. The question of how to avoid touching your face in the manual is a matter of curiosity.
A guide to methods of protection from the new deadly Corona virus (COVID-19), published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has been on the agenda on Twitter. The “avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth” advice in the manual is considered by social media users as “something that can never be done”.
While the U.S. residents take note of the CDC’s warnings, they think it’s unlikely to avoid touching the face. New Yorker writer Emily Nussbaum expressed the general idea by tweeting “I have never wanted to touch my face as much as I want to touch this week”. Many Twitter users have posted tweets stating how difficult it is to try not to touch the face.
Apparently, the more we are warned not to touch our face, the more we find ourselves touching our face. Worse still, judging by Twitter users, because of the warnings, they started to think more about their own faces, and their faces began to itch.
Fortunately, other recommendations of the CDC are stated to be easier to implement.
CDC’s recommendations for protection from COVID-19 include:
Avoid close contact with sick people
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
Stay home when you are sick
Use a handkerchief when you cough or sneeze and throw it away later
Clean and disinfect your frequently touched objects and surfaces using everyday household cleaning spray or wet wipes
Follow the recommendations made by the CDC for the face mask: The CDC does not recommend that healthy people wear a mask to prevent respiratory ailments, including COVID-19; face masks should be worn only to prevent COVID-19 symptoms from spreading the virus to others.
Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after toilet, before eating and after squealing, coughing and sneezing. If there is no soap present, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol. If your hands are visibly dirty, always wash them with soap and water.
