What the inspection experts say to avoid virus peaks
With the start of vaccination work for the elderly and people between the ages of 50 and 59, family members can be entrusted to gather to celebrate the mother on May 10. Check what the experts say to avoid a virus outbreak.
Clara Elisabeth Gonzalez Rosas, a doctor at the Mexican Institute of Social Security, said that the Covid-19 vaccine does not prevent a person from getting sick, but it can prevent them from showing severe symptoms of the disease.
According to experts, it takes a certain amount of time for vaccinated people to develop antibodies, but even if they are immunized, they will get sick, have mild symptoms and even infect other people. If there are risk factors, they may have severe symptoms.
Therefore, before celebrating Mother’s Day, he called for preventive measures:
- Always wear a mask correctly
- Wash hands with soap and water or use 70% alcohol solution
Avoid shaking hands or kissing
- Keep a healthy distance
- Avoid hugging and kissing the host to protect her
If you want to have a meeting, try to meet only with those members you live with every day, instead of attending or holding events or gatherings that can lead to people who cannot reach a healthy distance.
Dr. González Rosas also recommends using telephone, social networks or video calls to celebrate the mother.
He said that in the same way, as long as they maintain sanitary measures, including disinfection of gift packaging, they can receive gifts through the package service.
If you have ordered food to celebrate your mother in a restaurant, please maintain the hygiene measures that have been established for these places and confirm that it is safe and has an electronic menu with a QR code and personal cutlery.
You should also pay attention to the number of diners at each table, follow signs that allow healthy distances, and preferably make electronic payments to avoid greater contact with the surface.
