Scientists share tips and tricks to stay in quarantine during coronavirus outbreak
New Delhi : The world is going through a major crisis of coronavirus outbreak and people have been asked to stay in quarantine in order to avoid the hazards the disease can bring to anyone's life. Quarantine being one of the best practice to avoid coronavirus must be taken seriously, and the astronauts who do this often have come forward to share the tips and tricks which may help people while being in the quarantine.
Astronauts, who had to live in isolation from other people for months in space missions, published their advice on how to live on quarantine days.
Astronauts take part in space missions with teams of a certain number of people. And the teams are put in a closed place for months in a mandatory environment in space missions. We have seen videos where astronauts have defined their tricks to make use of everything available in a wise manner. In these days when the houses are closed due to coronavirus, we can benefit from the personal methods of astronauts.
Scott Kelly, who served in the International Space Station (ISS) for about a year, proposes to program and adhere to this program to deal with quarantine. Kelly says that maintaining the program will lead to harmony with people who stay in the same environment for a long time. Kelly says entertainment activities, such as movie evenings, will also relax quarantine times. Kelly adds that reading books may also be important activities.
Peggy Whitson, one of the most experienced astronauts in the world, says it is important to understand the importance of the quarantine caused by coronavirus and to communicate effectively and accurately with people in the home.
Anne McClain, who works at ISS, underlines effective communication like Whitson and says personal care is important. McClain says he describes not only a personal care for hygiene, but a personal care that will relax people’s mood.
Chris Hadfield, one of the former astronauts of the Canadian Space Agency, advises people to find ways to break away from daily life and be productive. Hadfield states that the methods he developed to be productive in space mission also work on Earth.
