The Covid-19 pandemic came into our lives unannounced in 2020. For many families, it still is a very stressful period because of work loss or loved ones that have passed away due to Covid-19. And the scientists tell us that the pandemic will still be with us for quite a while.
The whole Covid prevention campaign worldwide is built on aspects regarding sanitation, cleaning and social distancing. This irritates some people, but it is the only way to prevent the spreading of viruses – now and in the future.
Let’s have a look at what we’ve learned from Covid-19.
The majority of us has always washed our hands before eating, cleaned our kitchens and bathrooms regularly and tried not to invade somebody else’s space. But Covid has taught us that if we become too comfortable and skip many routine sanitising and other procedures, the result can be devastating.
Through this pandemic, we’ve learned that hands must be sanitised whenever entering or leaving a public space. We have to clean kitchen and bathroom surfaces each time they have been used.
We’ve also learned that social distancing between strangers makes it safer for everyone. However, social distancing asks for some effort. You have to plan your visits to crowded places and the use of public transport better. Considering another time than a rush hour to do shopping has become part of our lives.
All the things we are doing to prevent further spreading of the Covid-19 virus, are things we have to carry on doing even in a post-Covid time. Many environmental and health experts are already talking about the “new normal”.
To keep the world from experiencing another virus outbreak such as this pandemic, we all have to put new routines in place in our households.
The cleaning and disinfection of countertops, cutting boards, door handles, phones, keyboards and other similar objects must in future always be part of our daily routine.
