271. Regular life rhythm to maintain health
Currently, COVID-19 continues to spread across the country. Since COVID-19 is an infectious disease, it is quite different from radiation, as human contact can spread the virus. Therefore, it is essential to avoid closed or crowded spaces with poor ventilation and close-contact settings to protect yourself and others against the spread of the virus.
For the foreseeable future, various prevention measures such as travel restrictions and lockdowns are expected to be officially announced. The reasons for enacting these preventive measures is that avoiding contact with other people is one of the most crucial and effective methods to reduce the transmission rate of infectious diseases.
On the other hand, when such measures are enacted for a long time, our life rhythm is likely to be disrupted, and we tend to become isolated from society. It is of course important to protect ourselves from infectious diseases, but it is also crucial to maintain healthy lifestyles and protect our mental health.
