Every government in the world have been urging people to prepare -- not panic -- for the new coronavirus. Indeed, the whole Coronavirus situation is a scary one. But here are few do’s, don’t & facts which may help you to prepare for the fight.

Do’s and Don’ts

Do wash your hands for at least 20 seconds, several times a day. 

Use soap and water or a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

Don’t touch your eyes, nose, and mouth. If you have somehow come into contact with the virus, touching your face can help it enter your body.

Do Learn the symptoms, similar to flu:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath    

Don’t wear a mask unless you’re sick. Masks help protect others from catching the virus, but wearing one when you’re healthy won’t do much.

Do consider taking extra precautions and staying out of public places.       

Don’t travel if you have a fever.

Do reconsider travel to affected countries.        

Don’t travel Non-essentially.

 

Facts- A little known fact is that Children are largely Immune. They may test positive for the virus, but very few are actually getting sick from it. In fact, they may lack all symptoms, so will never know that they were infected. 

The virus doubles in 5 days in adults but skips the children.

One scientist theorized it's because kids' immune systems are used to fighting off every new or strange bug that comes along. So few children are among those sick enough to be diagnosed, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association that the outbreak is affecting older people.

The immune system plays a major role while fighting the virus. For this purpose, it is advisable to look at Immune- Boosting foods/ supplements. Few of the super immune food are available in your kitchen, such as- Turmeric, Amla, Moringa etc.

Turmeric- We all have heard how the anciently used herb has various properties like Anti-Inflammatory, Antiviral, Anti-oxidant and more. But only, some of us know that the active ingredient of Turmeric i.e., Curcumin is majorly responsible for its actions. Curcumin is found to be only 3% in pure Turmeric, which is very low when taken as everyday spice. So, either you take more than 15 grams Turmeric a day or you can look at Nutraceuticals to increase your immunity.

Amla- Amla is an excellent source of Vitamin C, hence it helps boost your immunity, metabolism and prevents viral and bacterial ailments, including cold and cough.

Moringa- Moringa has been used for centuries due to its medicinal properties and health benefits. It also has antifungal, antiviral, antidepressant, and anti-inflammatory properties.
