Do Our Part, We Can Help Flatten the Curve!
During this COVID-19 crisis, Uolo team wishes all our customers and friends stay safe and healthy! It is important for everyone to understand that we are in this together, and we will get through this together!
To help protect the elderly, the vulnerable and to help relieve the pressure on our health care system, let's ensure we do our own part by always practicing the social distancing strategies, avoiding nonessential travels, and most importantly staying at home if you can!
Research has shown that coronavirus can survive and remain infectious in airborne droplets for 3 hours. It can also stay active on different surfaces for up to 72 hours depending on the temperatures and surrounding environment. What makes coronavirus very challenging to deal with is not only because of its highly contagious nature via the human respiratory system, but also due to its long hidden period before a carrier starts to showcase any noticeable symptom. Without practicing social distancing strategies, an asymptomatic virus carrier could potentially pass the virus onto those who come in close contact with him/her.
To protect yourself and help prevent spreading the virus, here are a few basic practices we can follow:
- Wash hands with soap frequently for at least 20 seconds (to sing Happy Birthday twice);
- Clean and disinfect the surfaces of regularly used items, such as: door knobs, counters, desks, chairs, mobile devices, keyboards and mouse, etc. on a daily basis;
- Cover coughing and sneezing with a tissue or your sleeve, not your hands;
- If you have to go outside, wearing a mask in a public space is recommended based on the evidence we have seen in many Asian countries.
It is uncertain at this moment how long COVID-19 is going to last, and how it will change the way we live. The least we can contribute is to do our part, stay positive and always remember to live with a smile!
