Given the current situation, multiple protocols have been generated aimed at avoiding any risk of contagion. But, unfortunately, there is very little information aimed at those who may be affected or living with someone affected. For this reason, and from our commitment to care and prevention, at Holland and Barrett we want to inform you about the measures we can take to help someone who shows symptoms of COVID-19 at home.
Where to install it?
Whenever possible, we must install our affected person in a room exclusively for the affected person, limiting their range of movement within the house to prevent its spread and taking care of any contact that we or other members have.
Similarly, it is advisable not to share the bathroom, or to carry out exhaustive cleaning every time our infected person uses it.
What hygienic measures should we take?
We must use bleach to disinfect any surface: doorknobs, tables, switches, faucets, telephones, etc. Likewise, it is advisable to increase cleaning efforts and wash separately all bedding and clothing of the infected person.
On the other hand, we must protect ourselves, whenever we are going to make any contact, with gloves, masks and any other protective material we have.
Should you follow any special diet?
Let us keep in mind that, as when we suffer from any other disease, both the desire to eat and our intake levels decrease. Consequently, and as long as your body can tolerate it, we must give you all types of foods that strengthen your immune system and are rich in Vitamins A, C, D, Omega 3, Folic Acid, Zinc, Iron or Magnesium. For example: juices, smoothies, citrus fruits, oily fish, nuts, etc.
How can we improve your rest?
Due to the symptoms that this Coronavirus usually develops, sleeping or resting can be difficult. To try to help and achieve a certain quality of rest, we have to avoid intense lights, eat foods with caffeine and try to follow a rest routine. Depending on the condition of the affected person and whenever possible, before going to sleep we can help them do physical exercises or personal hygiene tasks that help tire the body.
What do we do with waste?
It is very important that we manage the waste generated by the affected person appropriately, since it can be a great threat to the rest of the people. Therefore, we recommend the use of any hygiene product that is disposable.
We must isolate all garbage generated by the infected person in plastic bags. Once we have treated the waste, we must apply a thorough and comprehensive personal hygiene protocol that avoids any possible threat.
