Things to do to avoid any illness

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Look at it rationally you are more likely to die in an automobile accident or a heart issues than a virus.
  • Take a news break

Keep yourself rationally informed. Center For Disease control is a good on-line resource
