Experts appeal: disinfect your hands, get vaccinated!

We must be aware that various viruses are circulating among us, not only COVID-19. Therefore, according to experts, we should disinfect our hands as often as possible.

“The coronavirus is very easy to remove because it contains a lipid envelope that can be easily damaged by soap, disinfectant, dishwashing liquid or floor cleaning liquid. And without this cover, it loses its power to infect. Therefore, you should wash not only your hands, but also door handles and wipe surfaces in offices, shops, clinics and hospitals as often as possible. These cleaning activities should become part of our blood. If we do not follow the hygiene rules, the virus will quickly get from the surface of our hands to the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose or eyes,” said Joanna Jursa-Kulesza, MD, PhD, a medical microbiology specialist from the Independent Public Provincial Hospital, in “Wprost”. Combined in Szczecin.

On December 6, the vaccination campaign against the new coronavirus variant began in Poland. People over 12 years of age can be vaccinated with the Nuvaxovid vaccine.
