Masks, social distance, temperature checks, and washing hands are the norm when it comes to actions recommended against the coronavirus. But some people may have taken these actions a notch higher. The first few examples may seem okay and normal. But the deeper you go, the weirder it becomes.
Putting on a pair of goggles on your face may not be a bad idea and can prevent you from getting infected by the coronavirus. The same way that the virus can get into your body via your mouth and nose, it also can from your eyes.
Experts say wearing eye protection in high-risk situations is highly recommended, but research has shown otherwise. It’s been shown that the path to your respiratory system is less direct from the eyes than the nose and mouth. So it may be difficult to contact COVID-19 through the eyes.
Sanitize Your Nose
Sounds crazy, right? Sanitizing your nose could actually reduce the risk of getting COVID-19. Before you start spraying sanitizer up your nostrils, there are specific products made for this purpose. The Nozin® Nasal Sanitizer® will allow swabbing the inside of your nostrils providing you 12-hour protection. As ridiculous this may sound, it actually works.
Wearing Masks That Open When You Eat
Masks that can allow you to eat on the go are available. The zippers on the masks allow you to pass food into your mouth, Others come with a hole so you can fit a straw through it.
Early sunshine bathing to get Vitamin D
Vitamin D reduces the risks of coronavirus infection and helps in the recovery process if you do get COVID-19. Past studies have shown that Vitamin D protects against other acute respiratory infections. It makes sense Vitamin D would help fight against the coronavirus too because it supports antiviral mechanisms in the body. Need free Vitamin D? Just spend 5 to 10 minutes outside under early morning sunshine on a weekly basis. Vitamin D can also be taken as a supplement.
Now, it gets weird.
Sanitize your banknotes by boiling
Orhan Sarı, 55, who has been running a grocery store for 25 years, disinfects the money he receives from customers who come to his workplace by boiling it at a temperature of 100 degrees Celsius.
Stressing that the risk of spreading viruses via money circulating throughout the day is very high, Sarı said that he has even considered cleaning the banknotes even with bleach during the disinfection stage.
Iron your money.
Kahraman Bayazıt owns a hardware store. He takes banknotes from customers with tongs and irons them with a hot iron in order to kill off any traces of coronavirus on the currencies.
Ignorance is bliss
This strategy is highly NOT recommended.
In Turkmenistan, the coronavirus does not officially exist. While other nations around the world have recorded large numbers of cases and deaths, launched testing programs, and imposed strict lockdowns, the Turkmen government has yet to confirm a single case of Covid-19. Instead, for the past six months, President Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov has responded to the pandemic with denial, secrecy, and disinformation.
The government has reportedly banned the word, COVID-19, from being used by the state-run media. It’s also removed any mention of it from healthcare brochures. If people publicly wear face masks they can be arrested.
Use COVID-19 as an excuse to become a dictator
In Hungary, Prime Minister Viktor Orban effectively became a dictator after the country passed sweeping a bill that means he can rule by decree without an end date. He also has the power to suspend current laws in the country.
Use the counter-terrorism technique to battle COVID-19
In Israel, the security service Shin Bet is using counter-terrorism technology on civilians to stop the virus from spreading. The agency is monitoring the cellphone locations of people sick with the coronavirus. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledged it was a privacy infringement, but he said that it was acceptable if it slowed the coronavirus.
Here we have it people and as a bonus, we present to you some of the most ridiculous face masks, ever.
