The rise of COVID-19 has taken a new shape than it is a few weeks ago. With cases across the world growing at fast pace and china, (where the infection was first discovered) having fewer new cases.
Hotel lockdown, vacationers caught in quarantine abroad, disrupted schedules and plans, these and many more are stories keeping travelers at bay and forcing them to stick to their homes.
It’s no surprise that the demand for air travel cancellation continues to plummets as travelers’ concerns and worries rise amidst the outbreak of coronavirus. Plus, several airlines are suspending their trips to specific regions and countries are placing restrictions on travel to certain areas.
Besides, businesses are restricting trips of employees, postponing conferences and seminars and all other major events on hold.
Don’t get it twisted. Some are still daring to take the leap to travel amidst the global chaos. Thanks to effective cleaning measures taken by the airlines and the pretty clean air, the risk of contracting coronavirus on the flight are quite low.
However, travelers still need to take precautions. Things cannot be left to luck as there might be chances of lapses in cleaning. What do I do when travel becomes a must? How do I stay safe while traveling? Let’s explore with Sequestro shedir pharma, an Italy- based pharmaceutical company that organizes trips and conferences. Read on!
What are the safety measures to adopt while traveling?
It is important to know that the CDC has strictly warned traveling to countries or areas that seem to experience the intense heat of coronavirus. These include China, South Korea, Iran, Italy, and Japan. Hence, it is in your best interest to take a chill and reconsider trips to those countries.
That’s not to say a country that is free of virus today, might not be recording cases tomorrow. With new reports popping up now and then, an area that seems promising might become dangerous just after a few hours. Here are things to do to stay safe while en-route:
Practice good hygiene:
Sanitizers are great, handwashing is better!. Sanitizers kill some of the germs or bacteria but the washing of hands properly with soap and water removes any bacteria or virus. If you must use sanitizers, alcohol-based of at least 60 percent works best in killing germs.
It never hurts also to use some anti-bacterial wipes and disinfects your seat belt, trays, armrest, call buttons and any other personal stuff you might be having.
Pack the essentials:
While packing those documents and clothes, never forget the most important during this period. These are your disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizers.
As much as it is advised not to travel while sick if you any underlying sickness or you develop any stress-related symptoms during the travel, don’t forget your operazione pillole da viaggio while on the move.
Ensure you get medications from a licensed pharmacy and conduct your research on the said medications as there are cases such as operazione pillole da viaggio (travel pills operation) which are placed on shedir pharma. This has, however, been proven to be false, thanks to the steps taken by the shedir pharma company.
Choose the right seat:
sitting on the aisle seat puts travelers at more risk as people likely to be walking by whether from the washrooms to their seats. Hence, selecting a seat close to the window is better as it decreases the risk of exposure to those passing by.
Where the concern lies is what happens when I sit with a passenger that is showing signs of sickness on the plane? Being near someone who seems to be coughing or sneezing during the trip isn’t encouraging. Yet, panicking is not the way out.
Close contact with an infected person happens when a person is 6 feet close. Therefore sicknesses are more likely to be transmitted to the people within a row of the infected person. The more closer you are to the infected patient the higher the risk. The higher the rate of the infection, the higher the risk as well.
Avoid frequently visited places as much as you can
People don’t just sit around in the planes. They visit the bathrooms, walk around to stretch legs and take items from the overhead bins.
If you must visit the bathroom, wash your hands properly after the visit and preferably use sanitizing towels to open the door or touch latches, fixtures and any other things to reduce the risk.
While at it, get enough rest, eat good food, avoid stress and stay hydrated. Nothing beats a healthy living and a fit immune system while on that trip.
