Coronavirus: Top 12 Risk Places Where You Could Catch COVID-19

Globally, the new coronavirus epidemic still shows no signs of ending. Instead, there have been second and even third wave peaks in many countries, causing many governments to implement lockdown and isolation measures again to avoid further deterioration of the epidemic. Obviously, if herd immunity is to be achieved, it will take a long time and more people will die. This may have to wait until the vaccine is approved for marketing. So, under such a situation, some doctors and experts summarized a few places that are particularly prone to new coronavirus infections according to the places that may appear in daily life.

  1. Parks
  2. Zoos
  3. Museums
  4. Galleries
  5. Amusement Parks
  6. Places of Worship
  7. Shops/Market
  8. Hairdressers
  9. Restaurants (Indoors)
  10. Cinema
  11. Public Transport
  12. Bars

All of the above places have a significant commonality, that is, the density of people is relatively large, one is more specific people in an open outdoor environment, and the other is a lot of people gathering in a relatively confined space. In both cases, the new coronavirus has a strong spread. As long as one person is a virus carrier, there may be a lot of new coronaviruses in the air near him/her, and people nearby may be infected, thus bringing the virus to family members or other people.

As a rule of thumb, you should try and avoid crowded places as coronavirus is mainly spread through person-to-person contact. Bars, restaurants and public transport are some of the public spaces with the highest risk of coronavirus transmission. When in these places, it is important to try and avoid sitting face-to-face with other people, avoid touching your face and always carry an alcohol-based sanitizer with you. When indoors, wear a mask.

Generally, the places with the highest risk of coronavirus infection are indoor spaces with poor ventilation and many touchpoints. Other risky spaces include bars, restaurants, places of worship, community pools, beaches, public transport, and large outdoor gatherings. Shops can also be high-risk due to a high volume of people and poor ventilation.

How to Stay Healthy Where You Are

Firstly, it is important to always be aware of local and national health authority guidelines. There are also some simple precautions you can take to help reduce risk of infection. It is important to:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water frequently, or clean your hands using an alcohol-based sanitizer

  • Maintain a distance of at least six feet between yourself and other people (keep safe social instance)

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth; and avoid touching the other’s eyes, nose and mouth

  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze with your bent elbow or a tissue

  • Wear a face mask when go outside

  • Avoid crowds

And if to survive this epidemic healthily, we need each of us to take on some social responsibilities, for ourselves, for our families, and in order to obtain a better free life, we must ask ourselves and be personal in accordance with the requirements of the authority. This is very important.
