Coronavirus self isolation advice urges patients to stay at home and not go to work, avoid using public transport like trains, buses as well as taxis, ask family and friends to do errands for you and avoid having any visitors.
Coronavirus has affected approximately 119 countries in the world claiming the lives of 4,300 people and currently infecting around 48,000 patients. This has led to massive preventions and containment drives by governments and world health bodies across the globe to stop this disease from causing any further havoc. Some countries like China and Italy where the disease has caused more damage than others have enforced complete lockdown whereas other countries are increasing its awareness about its symptoms as well as telling people to take early diagnosis as when detected early in patients it has better chances of being effectively treated.
Some education institutions and other professional places have shut down to prevent the number of cases from rising as well as offered employees to work from home in order to limit contact. Students are the future of the world which is why education institutions should take safety precautions to fight against this global epidemic and protect children successfully.
Disseminate critical information
With the help of collaboration and coordination with state and local health departments schools and colleges can disseminate critical information about the disease and how it is transmitted. They must also promote everyday disease prevention strategies like if you are sick stay at home, avoid close contact with those who are really sick, quality checking of food, cover nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing with a tissue or the crook of your arm, wash hands with soap and water as well as avoid touching nose, eyes and mouth.
Temporary suspension of foreign exchange programs
Many universities across the world have suspended their foreign exchange programs for the health the safety of all students. Study trips have also been rescheduled with many universities and schools switching to online teachings in place of classroom sessions. Graduation ceremonies have also been postponed for students who finished their academic studies as well as diplomas. Implementing e-learning plans including digital and distance learning will ensure the continuity of education especially among children who are at a critical juncture in their student journey.
However, the biggest challenge here is to impart education to students who don’t have a computer or laptop at home. This problem can be solved by asking their parents to educate them and sending them the lessons by mail or post. Moreover, the schools which are still open have ensured that there are no group events or extracurricular activities, school assemblies, pep rallies, field trips as well as sporting events.
Regular health sessions
According to a child care specialist children are important drivers of influenza infections because they have more interactions with people than adults and give off more of the viruses. Sessions on how to self isolate yourself’ if there’s a chance you could have coronavirus are also important and helpful for students who have been diagnosed with the disease or have a family member who is a patient.
Coronavirus self isolation advice urges patients to stay at home and not go to work, avoid using public transport like trains, buses as well as taxis, ask family and friends to do errands for you and avoid having any visitors. These classes will help allay the fear of being shunned by others as they will understand that for their own safety and that of others this treatment in isolation is the correct way.
