A few personal comments:
- Wearing masks when in public is essential. While some may argue that Sweden proves the opposite; note that the Swedes are a very disciplined society when compared to most. They have mastered social distancing and practise it to good effect.
- Avoid crowds and any contact that may expose you to the risk of contracting COVID-19.
- Even though you may believe that you will not be affected health wise if you contract COVID-19remember that we don’t know the impact later on in life.
- Have a sanitising protocol when entering your home after being in public spaces.
- Focus on your Immunity – nutrition, exercise and attention to health.
- COVID-19 will affect us to this extent for at least another 18 months, so we need to adjust our lifestyles to maintain our health in the future.
