Across the world and at home in Bangladesh, as the global pandemic of the novel coronavirus continues to evolve, these are uncertain times. We at Praava Health want to share with you a personal message from our Founder & Chairman, Sylvana Q. Sinha. Ms. Sinha shares some important information on the COVID-19 pandemic, how the virus spreads and means of prevention, how Praava is caring for you and your loved ones, and above all, being good to ourselves and staying calm as we brave through this together.
To avoid coronavirus, wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Practice social distancing, which is deliberately increasing the physical space between you and others to avoid contracting or spreading illness. Staying at least 3 feet away from other people lessens your chances of catching COVID-19.
