Ways to prevent the disease

PRECAUTIONS
  • Wash Your Hands For 20sec

    Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Cover Nose & Mouth When Sneezing

    Cover coughs and sneezes with tissues.
  • Use Sanitizer

    Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid Contact With Sick People

    Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness.
  • Avoid Crowded Places (Social Distancing)

    As an individual, you can lower your risk of infection by reducing your rate of contact with other people. Avoiding public spaces and unnecessary social gatherings, especially events with large numbers of people or crowds, will lower the chance that you will be exposed to the coronavirus as well as to other infectious diseases like flu.

How is the virus transmitted?

It’s likely that the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) originated in an animal species, and then spread to humans.

Person to person spread of the novel corona virus is reported, but it is not yet understood how easily this happens.

Other human coronavirus strains are spread from person to person through contaminated droplets from a person who is sick with the illness (through coughing or sneezing) or contaminated hands.

Myths About COVID-19

WE SHOULD BE AWARE
Garlic is a healthy food that may have some antimicrobial properties. However, there is no evidence from the current outbreak that eating garlic has protected people from the new coronavirus.
The new coronavirus is a respiratory virus which spreads primarily through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes, or through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose. To date there has been no information nor evidence to suggest that the new coronavirus could be transmitted by mosquitoes.
There is no reason to believe that cold weather can kill the new coronavirus or other diseases. The normal human body temperature remains around 36.5°C to 37°C, regardless of the external temperature or weather.
The new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a virus and, therefore, antibiotics should not be used as a means of prevention or treatment.
Yes it is safe. People receiving imported goods or packages from China are not exposed to the risk of getting the new coronavirus. We know from experience that it is very unlikely that the virus would survive for a long time on things such as letters or packages.
