As explained by the Lung Specialist Doctor Siloam ASRI Hospital Jakarta, dr. Maydie Esfandiari, Sp.P, if a patient is confirmed Covid-19 coughs and does not use a mask, the droplets will cause transmission to other people. (Read: These are Heaven’s Doors for Women)
The mode of transmission itself can be through the respiratory tract when people breathe in the air, through coughing or sneezing people who are positive for Covid-19. But don’t wear a mask carelessly. Because if you wear a mask at random, individuals still have the potential to be exposed to this virus.
“People who wear face mask improperly, under the nose or on the chin, can cause infection, “said dr. Maydie.
Or it could be, continued dr. Maydie, through another case in droplets that fell onto the surface of an object which was then touched or held by hands. Without realizing it, the hand rubs the face or eyes so that the virus enters the body.
“They enter through the eyes and nose, then enter the lungs through the upper respiratory tract,” said dr. Maydie, who reminded us to always implement health protocols wherever we are. (Also read: Two Schools in Solo Hold Face-to-Face Learning Simulations)
Because masks are the main shield against the spread of Covid-19, the use of masks must be done in the right way. Before putting on a mask, wash your hands with soap and running water (at least 20 seconds) or, if not available, use hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol).
Install it face mask to cover the mouth and nose and make sure there is no gap between the face and the mask. Avoid touching the mask while in use; If touched, wash your hands with soap and running water for at least 20 seconds or if not available, hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol).
Replace the wet or damp mask with a new one. Medical masks should only be used once. Cloth masks can be used repeatedly. (See the video: Office Management Obliged to Follow Health Protocols)
To remove the mask: remove it from behind. Don’t touch the front of the mask. For a 1x mask, throw it away immediately in a closed trash can or plastic bag. For cloth masks, wash immediately with detergent. (Sri Noviarni)
