Here are 14 tips on how to protect yourself from coronavirus:
Your home regularly with bleach and water, or wash surfaces with soap and use alcohol spray. (If you have pets or respiratory problems, don’t use bleach as it is very toxic).

6- Don’t touch your face, mouth or nose.

And if you must go for shopping or in public transportation, use a face mask and stand in the elevator with your body facing the wall.

All frequently touched items like handbags, briefcases, mobile phones, car door handle, door handle, keys and any metal stuff, remote controls, tables, light buttons, computer keyboard/mouse…etc.
13- If you feel unwell stay at home.
For example, if you have been in contact with an infected person and you noticed mild symptoms within 14 days after contact, isolate yourself, rest and eat balanced meals rich in fruits and vegetables, especially vitamins C.
why you do this? Because mild symptoms don’t need hospitalization. It is likely that you will recover without medical assistance, if you are not old and you don’t have health problems or chronic diseases that may weaken your immunity. Also when you stay home, you will leave place in hospitals and other health care places, and allow them to provide their best help for those who really are in need for it.
14- If you develop severe symptoms.
Like fever, severe fatigue, difficulty breathing, you must cal for help because in that case the disease is lethal and the quicker you get help, the quicker you recover.
