World health organization information | Directive for safe eating during Kovid 19

The pesky world of Kovid 19 is not as old as many of these recent times. That is, many of the ways in which we worked, traveled, ate, public places, and interacted with people may going to witness many revolutionary changes.

Now in the minds of people, the health of their family and of his family has suddenly become a 'high priority' item. This is not to say that people did not think of it before seriously.

Today, however, many people are concerned that even their own eating habits may lead to the spread of coronavirus. At this point, the World Health Organization (WHO) has put forward five proposals relating to eating habits.

1. Maintain cleanliness
  • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before making and eating a meal. 
  • Make it a habit to wash your hands after you go to the toilet. 
  • Wash and sanitize surfaces and food preparation equipment. Keep the kitchen free of insects, flies, or other animals.
Although many microorganisms are harmless, the presence of certain microorganisms that have the potential to cause major hazards has been found in soil, water, pets, other insects, and humans. These microorganisms are found in the hands, home cleaning clothes, containers, and cutting boards. They can enter through food from our hands by touch while cooking and cause foodborne illnesses.

2. Keep cooked and non-cooked separately
  • Keep uncooked chicken, mutton, beef, and fish separately. Use a separate knife, cutting board and utensils to clean or cut these. Store only cooked food, vegetables, and fish in sealed containers to avoid mixing or food contamination.
Ever seen a liquid leaked from raw meat and fish? The presence of dangerous microorganisms in these liquids is very likely. These micro creatures may mix with other cooked, ready, or stored meals.

3. Cook well and eat
  • Chicken, mutton, beef, pork, and all kinds of meat, eggs, fish must cook well suitable heat before you eat. 
  • Soups and stews should be cooked in a heat of a minimum of 70 degrees before you drink or eat. 
  • When cooking the meat, make sure the juice that comes out of it stays clear, not pink. Reheat cooked food if necessary.
All the microbes will destroy in heat. Studies have shown that food warms up to 70 degrees, making them safer. When the meat cooked in large chunks, you need to make sure all parts of it cooked well.

4. Keep food items at safe temperatures 
  • Do not store cooked food for more than two hours at a normal temperature. Any cooked food must keep refrigerated below 5 degrees. They should serve only after reheat the temperature reaches 60 degrees. 
  • Do not store cooked food beyond a limit, even if it's inside the refrigerator. Do not store frozen food at normal temperatures for long.
At normal temperatures, microorganisms breed very quickly. When it is below 5 degrees or above 60 degrees, the growth of these microorganisms can stagnate and stop.

5. Make food only with clean water and clean foodstuffs
  • Use only microbial-free water to cook food. If there is no availability of good water, filter the available water. 
  • Make food only with fresh vegetables, meat, fish, eggs, and milk. 
  • Try to use products that have been processed for food safety. E.g. Rely on them like milk pasteurizing. 
  • Wash well the raw vegetables that you want to eat. 
  • Be careful do not to use food items after its expiry date.
This is because, including water, ice, and other substances are more likely to mix with harmful microorganisms and toxic chemicals.

Toxic substances also found in stale foods. The first step in food safety is to choose fresh raw materials to cook. Precautions such as being selective, washing, and using peeled as possible can help prevent accidents.


The World Health Organization (WHO) | Guidelines to build a new lifestyle to combat corona

    Maintain social distance
    • When you walk along the road, someone passes by you. In such cases, there is little chance of spreading the disease. However, the closer you are to a person for some time, the greater chance of contracting the disease. The guideline document states that at least two meters away from the others are to maintain.
    • The crowd should avoid as much as possible.
    • Avoid unnecessary social interactions.
      Don't forget to wash your hands before you go out and get back home.
