Coronavirus Prevention : How to Protect Yourself and Others

The COVID-19 disease has been spreading rampantly throughout the world with no definite cure or vaccine as of yet, but, if we follow the WHO and CDC coronavirus prevention guidelines, we will be able to protect ourselves and loved ones from this disease. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid exposure to the virus. The virus spreads through person-to-person contact supposedly, so we better avoid close contact with one another or at least keep 6 feet distance when engaging because the respiratory droplets from infected person contain the virus. These droplets remain in the air or stick to the surface when the infected person talks, sneezes or coughs and if inhaled can infect a healthy person. Some studies have suggested that the virus may be spread by people even if they aren’t showing any symptoms.
