The country where hundreds of thousands of people have not heard of COVID-19
Hundreds of thousands of people caught fighting in western Myanmar probably know nothing about COVID-19 after Internet access was blocked in the area, according to human rights organizations, quoted by CNN.
In June 2019, the government of Myanmar, led by Aung San Suu Kyi, cut off internet access in nine cities in the area for fear that it would be used to fuel clashes between the military and insurgents in Myanmar.
In May, internet access returned to a municipality, but another eight, with a total population of about 800,000 people, are still deprived of this means of communication.
Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International say the lack of the Internet threatens people's lives, not only because it prevents them from reporting possible human rights violations, but also because they do not have access to coronavirus pandemic information campaigns.
"With an armed conflict between Myanmar's troops and the Arakan army in Rakhine State amid the pandemic, it is essential that civilians obtain the information they need to stay safe," said Linda Lakhdhir, Asia's legal adviser to Human Rights Watch.
Six deaths and 292 COVID-19 infections were reported in Myanmar from more than 64,532 tests, according to the Myanmar Ministry of Health.
Several cases have been confirmed in the northern cities of Maungdaw and Buthidaung in Rakhine State, where more than 100,000 Rohingya Muslims live in crowded camps. Many fled military-launched operations against Rohingya insurgents in 2018. The UN has demanded that the Myanmar army be tried by an international tribunal for genocide and atrocities against Rohingya Muslims. Rakhine Buddhists left homeless due to the fighting also live in the camps in the area.

According to WHO, traditional folk or home remedies can help to improve well-being and alleviate the symptoms of COVID-19, but there are still no drugs that can prevent or treat this disease. Despite this, people, not understanding the seriousness of the situation, sometimes try to protect themselves with the help of extremely dubious substances. For example, in India they try to defend themselves by consuming cow urine and using sprays based on it.
People are trying to sell amulets against coronavirus, medicinal tinctures or even honey with protection against all ailments, including COVID-19.

10. Something seems to have happened to the pipe under the house.
Now hygiene in the apartment needs to be monitored more carefully than ever. Especially if the family has children, allergies and people of age, and pets still live at home. But you can once again stretch your legs and not grow to the sofa!
This is what Bemorepanda suggest you!
1. Use natural remedies
Cleaning products must be chosen meticulously, even if you do not have allergies or hypersensitive skin. Chemicals in detergents can be harmful to the health of all. Try not to use products that contain these compounds:
- Polyphosphates They can disrupt the barrier functions of the skin, cause allergies and damage to the respiratory tract. They pollute the environment, falling into nature with sewage water.
- Chlorine. Very volatile and toxic, accumulates in the tissues of the body and can cause various health problems.
- Ammonia. May cause mucosal burns and respiratory problems. Often found in window cleaning products.
- Artificial Flavors. May irritate the airways and cause headaches, especially for allergy sufferers. It is better to buy fragrance-free detergents.
In order not to bring home dangerous cleaners, try to take organic products or household chemicals marked "for children." In addition, do not forget about traditional remedies: for example, vinegar removes spots well, soda copes with scale, essential oils aromatize the air. Use good microfiber brushes and rags that wash everything with little or no household cleaning.
2. Vacuum furniture
Dust is not only what you see on the surface of shelves and tables. Dust particles eat into furniture upholstery and textiles and stand in an invisible cloud every time you sit on a sofa. This can cause respiratory irritation, coughing, asthma, or allergies. To breathe clean air, regularly vacuum upholstered chairs, sofas, and upholstered chairs. Remember to clean the mattress every few months. In the period when all the homework all day in the apartment, it is better to vacuum upholstered furniture once a week. Especially if you have furry pets who love to wallow with you on the couch.
3.Change bedding often
Bed linen should be washed at least once every 10 days. If you sweat in a dream, then more often, about once a week, since a moist environment promotes the growth of bacteria. Now there will be even more unpleasant, but truthful information. At night, our body goes through cell renewal processes. This means that the old epithelium is actively dying off, giving way to new skin integuments. The skin particles have nowhere to go except to stay on sheets and blankets.
4. Wash the bathroom thoroughly.
Bathroom is a place with high humidity. In such an environment, fungus and mold quickly multiply, which can be dangerous for allergy sufferers and people with weak immunity. Pay particular attention to the seams at the joints between the tiles: mold often accumulates in them.
5. Clean your refrigerator and kitchen shelves regularly.
Even if you are attentive to the issue of food storage, from time to time it happens to forget a rotten apple in a fruit box or not to notice how open cottage cheese has deteriorated. Bacteria, mold, fungi are frequent inhabitants of any places where food is stored. They can cause food poisoning, an upset stomach, or an allergic reaction.
6. Ventilate the apartment
When all family members spend most of their time at home, it is especially important to often air the rooms. The fact is that if many people breathe in a confined space, CO2 levels increase in the air.
7. Wet more often.
A powerful vacuum cleaner will help get rid of dust, but the final chord of cleanliness always remains with wet cleaning - washing floors and other surfaces. This procedure removes dust and balances dry air. After washing the floors in the apartment it will be easier to breathe. In addition, this is the only way to get rid of all the dirt and germs under your feet.
