How to Clean Your Gadget to Avoid Corona Virus

Based on WHO’s posting on its official Instagram account, they announced that the corona virus can be transmitted through droplets or sparks that come out when someone coughs, sneezes, or talks.

Transmission can also occur when touching a droplet-contaminated surface and unconsciously touching the eyes, nose and mouth before washing hands.

WHO warns to keep yourself safe from the corona virus by keeping a distance of at least 1 meter from someone infected with the corona virus. In addition, wash your hands regularly before touching eyes, mouth, and nose.

WHO also recommends disinfecting surfaces of objects that are frequently touched, including technological devices such as cell phones, power bank, cell phone chargers, smart watches, and so on.

The steps to clean it are as follows.

First, use the disinfectant recommended by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) with a 70% isopropyl alcohol and 30% water solution.

Second, use a microfiber cloth and disposable gloves to clean and sterilize the surface of your device.

Third, make sure the device is turned off (for the printer, the plug must be removed from the wall outlet) and other external equipment. Do not clean the device while it is on or connected to an electrical outlet.

Fourth, gently wipe the damp cloth on the surface to be cleaned. Do not allow any liquid to drip on parts of the device such as the keyboard, display panel, or USB port on the printer control panel, as this can cause damage to the device.

Fifth, wipe the cleaning cloth in one direction from the top surface to the bottom when cleaning a screen or printer control panel.

Sixth, make sure the cleaned surface is dry before turning on the device again. Do not turn on the device if liquid or moisture is still left on the surface.

Seventh, discard gloves after cleaning the device and wash your hands immediately after removing gloves.
