Steer clear of crowds
According to an observation from John Hopkins University and ground reports from the COVID-19 dashboard CoronaTracker, the virus had originated in Wuhan, but had quickly spread to other countries like the USA and Italy.
If a certain area has had reported cases of coronavirus, it would be prudent to avoid travelling to these potential hubs. It is recommended that you stay home, unless necessary to go out. If one must go out, practice social distancing and avoid crowds.
Wash your hands frequently
As the coronavirus is highly contagious, it is important to wash your hands frequently. It is recommended that you thoroughly scrub and clean your hands for 20 seconds. The rubbing motion and the use of soap breaks the structural form of COVID-19.
Always wash your hands:
- After handling money
- Heading outside
- During and after food preparation
- Before and after putting on gloves
- After sneezing or coughing
- Before and after using the bathroom
- After any form of hand contamination
- Before and after meals
- After any cleaning activity
- After handling dirty items like trash, coins, and paper bills
Remember: The virus enters the body via the mouth, nose, and eyes. If a person’s hand has been contaminated by the virus, it often transfers when the person touches their face.
Boost your immune system with the right diet and exercise
Ultimately, if your immune system is strong enough, it can deal with viral infections. Reduce the risk and build your defenses by eating foods rich in vitamins and antioxidants.
As the coronavirus primarily attacks the respiratory system, having strong lungs can also help, so cardio exercise is recommended.
Getting vaccinated is truly one of the best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19, especially with new variants emerging. Vaccines, regardless of type, all work to effectively train the body to fight off the infection. It can also help prevent severe COVID-19 and death resulting from this infection.
