Dr Farjana told while going outside regularly despite using a new mask every day one can follow the four-mask method and can reuse a mask. Use four new masks a week and after using it needs to be kept in an open dry space for three days with insides out. One mask can be used 5 times in an interval of three days. The doctors discussed in details about the basic etiquettes during this time, how important it is to sanitize their hands after touching the handle of a car or anything outside and avoid touching their face by hand. Dr Ritupam Das, DMDSC, Diabetologist talked mainly about the people who are more prone to the virus and how they can boost their immunity with the right kind of food, guidelines and care. Foods rich in vitamin C, green tea, milk with turmeric will help them to build immunity and living an active life is also very important. The students need to avoid junk foods for the same reason. Dr Medhi told this is a newly discovered virus that is spreading heavily if necessary precautions are not taken. They have seen numerous people get affected by it and that is why personal hygiene along with environmental hygiene and social distancing is very important. As the virus spreads through the respiratory tract, wearing a mask to cover the nose and mouth is a must.
