Diwali 2021 will mark our second Diwali during the Coronavirus pandemic and hopefully the last one too. Despite the curb in the spread, people are crowding the markets for shopping, which can make people vulnerable to COVID-19. This Diwali, let’s make sure to follow certain rules to avoid the spread of happiness and germs and viruses.
It is essential to lay additional loudness on following hygiene protocols. Here’re 8 ways that help light up your celebrations safely in the midst of the pandemic:
Have a Least-smoke Diwali
For many, Diwali means bursting firecrackers. But crakers are synonymous with respiratory issues. There has been a significant rise in pollution after this indulgence. Skip on crackers to harm COVID-19 patients and those suffering from other respiratory issues around your vicinity. The pollution from the crackers is seen to have breathing difficulties even in healthy individuals. There is a dire need for people to understand the repercussions of bursting firecrackers. Don’t stop burning crackers, but burn the lesser amount of crackers and make this Diwali a safer one for everyone.
Air pollution has been proven to have a dreadful impact on Covid19 infection. People exposed to higher levels of air pollutants have been found to have a higher risk of infection and/or death from Covid19. These are the results of a study published in September 2020 conducted by the UK Medical Research Council at its toxicology unit in Cambridge, England. This study mainly monitored nitrous oxide (NO) and nitrous oxide (NO2) levels and stated that death from Covid19 is associated with increased levels of NO and NO2.
We keep the door ajar to welcome Goddess Lakshmi and pray her to shower blessings upon us. Besides this sanity, the pollution levels are too high during the evening time. Keeping your doors and windows ajar will enable proper ventilation to circulate through the house and thus keep the air safe and fresh.
Have a vitamin C rich diet.
A balanced diet is pivotal in strengthening your immune system. As the festival of light, Diwali is just around the corner, you need to watch out for a few things that can end up harming your health if you are not careful.
Our immune system protects our body from outside deadly attackers such as bacteria, and viruses. To help our immune system function better, include the immunity boosters like Turmeric, Spinach, Ginger, Almonds, etc. in your diet.
Wash your hands instead of sanitizing
Enlightening the house with diyas all around is a special tradition throughout Diwali. Keep in mind that sanitizing your hands might cause harm before or while lighting diyas. Hence, it is best to Wash your hands instead of sanitizing them.
Carrying Paper soap strips(integrate) is a great alternative to carrying flammable sanitisers or heavy bar soaps everywhere. They are a safer option and you can easily wash your hands anywhere without causing an injury. It is imperative to wash your hands if they carry the smell of alcohol.

Keep Sanitizer Away from Fire.
Sanitizer bottles have become a part and parcel of our lives. People keep it handy in different places for accessibility. But, since most of the sanitizers are alcohol-based, they are easily flammable. Therefore, keep your sanitiser bottles away and at a safer place from lit diyas and prevent unnecessary accidents.
Don’t forget the mask
The masks are proven effective in stopping the spread of the novel coronavirus. So to protect yourself from contamination and coronavirus, wear your mask while celebrating with your loved ones.
Keep inhaler and medicines handy
It is better to be precautious and prevent an illness compared to its cure. People suffering from any respiratory issue like asthma should keep their inhalers medicines handy and follow all the precautions to have a safe and happy Diwali.
