How exposed are you to the Coronavirus? according to a US ranking

The Coronavirus has transformed our lives, limiting routines, making activities more cautious, and with appropriate distances. Society, in some cases, has not yet become aware of how dangerous it could be to maintain our routine customs before COVID-19.

A ranking prepared by the Texas Medical Association seeks that citizens assess the level of contagion to which they are exposed based on their daily activities. In the infographic prepared by the American institution, citizens can evaluate from 1 to 9, how risky are the possibilities of contracting the Coronavirus according to their actions.

The ranking is ordered from lowest to highest and addresses 37 most common activities that we carry out daily. Includes daily activities such as recreation, work, paperwork, sports.

The least risk is opening the mail, followed by ordering food to take from a restaurant, refueling and playing tennis, these activities would be the least likely to spread. While on the second step, where those with moderate low irrigation are located, shopping, going for a walk, running, cycling, and playing golf would be located.

On the third scale, that of moderate risk, are activities that involve breaking with social distancing, such as dining at someone else’s house, attending a barbecue outdoors, going to the beach or visiting a shopping center to do purchases. Also with a 6 to 9 hazard, sending children to school could be a moderate risk.

In the moderate-high group, they would be visiting a hair salon, eating at a restaurant, attending events such as weddings or funerals, traveling by plane, or playing soccer or basketball.

Finally, high-risk activities, eating at a buffet, going to the gym, an amusement park, cinema or theater, and again massive events as well as attending stadiums, concerts, or religious services with the presence of more than 500 people.
