How can I avoid getting COVID-19?
Currently, your main focus should be to get yourself vaccinated and protect yourself from this deadly virus. Also, it is better to stay at home, we know India is still going to expect the 3rd wave. So, make sure that you avoid the crowded areas and while travelling follow the necessary suggestions given by WHO. Here’s what you need to do:
- Wash your hands for 20 seconds (this is equivalent to singing happy b’day 2 times from start to end).
- Do not touch your nose, mouth, and eyes
- While sneezing or coughing make sure that you use a tissue. After every use, make sure to dispose of it off & correctly.
- Stay away from people who are sick.
- Clean the entire surface and areas which you touch everyday.
- Maintain at least 6 feet distance

|Double Masking means wearing a nylon face or cloth mask over the surgical mask. Doing this is more beneficial than wearing 1 mask. In case, you are wearing 1 mask then make sure that it covers your mouth and nose.|
Do I need to take special precautions if I have cancer?
Studies have shown that people with progressing or active cancer are at higher risk. Even if you have cancer or not, then make sure that you are following all the necessary precautions. During the COVID-19 Pandemics, it is important that you do not travel out. Only when you are vaccinated you should go out.
