Since the Government announced last week the possibility that Chilean families could re-reunite for the upcoming Patriotic Holidays, criticism abounded. And it is true that while pandemic mobility will increase and with it, the risks of contagion, it is also true that the six months of health crises in the country have wreaked havoc on those who have not been able to see their close ones.
In this regard, the doctor specialized in Public Health, Eduardo Bronstein, says that these parties are going to be something more like a Christmas, of reunion. And while the catalog of «risky, because it makes people walk around and is difficult to control, it is also understood from mental health, that is why the call is to take care of themselves, so that this does not increase depends on us.»
Regarding self-care last week, Undersecretary of Public Health Paula Daza commented on the «Fondéate at home» plan that includes a number of recommendations such as avoiding putting disposable masks or napkins on easy-to-contact tables or places and throwing them directly into the trash to avoid confusion.
He also assured that the ventilation of enclosed spaces is essential, especially if there are going to be visitors. Therefore, people are wanted to open windows and doors every day, even if it is cold or hot.
And since there is virtually no un roasted 18 September, Dr. Bronstein gives recommendations for making a pleasant celebration, not forgetting that he is going through a pandemic and any oversight could have serious consequences.
The first is the purchase, which should be with your own bags, wash everything when you arrive and implement a dirty area of a clean to leave what will be consumed. And when people get here? Here are some keys.
Back to school: marking plates and glasses
As if we were schoolchildren, the doctor recommends that to avoid drinking from a foreign glass or sharing the spoon, a good measure is to nominalize both cutlery and dishes. Another alternative, but much less ecological, would be to use disposable items.
How to serve food?
Food handling should ideally be for every person who is going to eat it. «The fart doesn’t get snouted. For this seasoning there are two options: either it is served individually or a single person is the one who takes the spoon and serves it to the rest,» Bronstein says. And he adds that I hope the meat is cooked well.
Arrival at the event: how do we greet each other?
The doctor assures that the first thing is to arrive yes or yes with mask. Then «if I touched the door plate, bring alcohol gel to clean and maintain physical distance when greeting.» For this he recommends doing it with the foot salute, because it is much better than the elbow, because there is more distance between one person and another.
As a surgeon
Bronstein is angry: «The griller is a surgeon and his work area has to be like a pavilion, where the clean is separated from the dirty.» He adds that mythical choripanes should be served with tweezers, never hand-in-hand, and that the mask should not be removed. If it gets wet, change it every two hours.
Everyone carries their plate
As is customary in Chilean families, when you finish eating you try to do the cleaning process among all. Several take the dishes to the kitchen, one washes them and others dry them. The doctor recommends that everyone now take their plate to the kitchen and only wash them. «Everyone throws the food scraps straight into the trash,» he says.
