How to protect yourself from Coronavirus:
-Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand rub if your hands are not visibly dirty as washing hands with soap and water eliminates the virus if it is on the hands.
-When coughing and sneezing, cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – discard tissue immediately into a closed bin and clean your hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water to prevent the spread of germs and viruses. If you sneeze or cough into your hands, you can pass the virus to other people that you have contact with.
-Eat fruits and vegetables that contain Vitamin C so that your immune system could be enhanced for better and be able to confront viruses.
-Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth as hands touch many surfaces, which can be contaminated with the virus. If you touch your eyes, nose, or mouth with your contaminated hands, the virus from the surface may infect you.
Accordingly, you need to keep surrounding surfaces clean and free of viruses.
