Our Daily Hack to Avoid Coronavirus

Coronavirus, COVID-19, flu, or any kind of virus can be avoided through proper hygiene and sanitizers. Interestingly, COVID-19 hates heat and sunlight. You would think you’re safer in sunny tropical countries. However, people stay mostly in airconditioned or cooler areas. Hence, the temperature falls below 56°C (sauna average temperature is 70 Celsius) which is the required heat to kill the SARS coronavirus, says WHO.

Bleach solution on hard surface

Washing at least 20-seconds kills the COVID-19 virus but instead of novelty soaps, use a germicidal soap. Equally important is to sanitize hard surfaces. You can use a bleach solution by adding 1 teaspoon of bleach to 1-liter of tap water. Use it to wipe non-fabric surfaces.

Homemade non-drying sanitizer

Prolonged use of rubbing alcohol may dry skin that causes skin corrosion where pathogens can easily penetrate. Although there are NO studies to show that frequent use of rubbing alcohol is toxic, it’s best to be cautious. To avoid drying, you can mix 70% isopropyl alcohol with a small amount of (food grade) glycerin or mix with tea tree oil and hydrogen peroxide, according to Rutgers University.

Car Heat and Sunlight?

A quick fix is to have a hot steaming shower, but what if you’ve already brought the virus inside the house? Although this method has not been tested, what we do before getting inside our house if we came outside is to turn the car’s airconditioning slowly to maximum heat for about 10 minutes (not more than 20) driving home. It can reach about 56 celsius which is an acceptable range. However, this is NOT recommended for kids or infants. Sudden heat may cause you to pass out.

The coronavirus dislikes sunlight, temperature, and humidity, says John Nicholls, a pathology professor at the University of HK (Accuweather). Thus, exposing yourself to direct-sunlight not only gives you Vitamin D but breaks down the virus that may have landed in your skin, hair, or clothes.

“I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 121

Ultimately, PRAY for protection

Of course, all these life-hacks fall behind God’s divine intervention. Truth is, God wants to protect His children. Those who belong to Christ are a child of God. If you are unbeliever, ask Jesus to turn your heart to believe and trust Him to save you and your family.

John 1:12
But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.
