Zhubanov University is actively working to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection.

While students are on distance learning, professional disinfection is carried out in four Houses of students. As the head of the office of the rector Gafur Borambaev noted, the technical staff has already carried out a planned sanitary treatment of all premises, but for greater effect, specialized companies were involved. Disinfection works are also carried out in all academic buildings of the University.

Recall the standard precautions recommended by the World Health Organization:

Wash your hands, and not just before eating:

Wash your hands after visiting public places, public transport, returning home, after the toilet, after communicating with animals, their food and waste, before, during and after cooking, before eating, before and after contact with patients or their belongings, before and after treating wounds, after cleaning or throwing garbage, after coughing or sneezing. If you can’t wash your hands with soap and water, you can use an alcohol-containing gel (sanitizer).

Don’t touch your face:

It is important not to allow bacteria and viruses to enter the mucosa, so it is better not to touch your hands to your nose, mouth, or RUB your eyes with dirty (that is, not just washed) hands.

It is safe to sneeze and cough:

When sneezing or coughing, you need to cover your nose and mouth with a paper napkin, after using it, you should immediately throw it in the trash with a lid and wash your hands. If there is no napkin at hand, it is better to sneeze and cough in the elbow bend, not in the palm. You can then use your palm to touch door handles, switches, tap valves, and so on. By the way, all these elements that we regularly touch, as well as phones, keyboards and mice, it is better to wash or wipe with alcohol-containing napkins, especially if someone is ill in the house.

Avoid public places:

This is a standard recommendation for any epidemic. When communicating with people, who advises keeping a distance of 1 m or more, especially if they sneeze or cough.

Ventilate the premises:

Ventilate the premises and try to maintain humidity in them

Standing air is most favorable for viruses and bacteria, so it makes sense to be afraid of it more than drafts.

Use masks correctly

Medical masks are needed when caring for patients and the patient themselves-this reduces the spread of infection.

Don’t panic

This seems to be the most difficult point. After watching the news about coronavirus, you want to put on a chemical protection suit and start stocking up on food. Anxiety is a natural state. Try to communicate with people you trust, share your thoughts and feelings with them, and support each other.
