Here are some healthy suggestions for disease control to help prevent catching viruses or other illnesses…

  • Train yourself not to touch your eyes, nose and mouth. This is a tough one, but it’s habit that will serve you the rest of your life, helping you avoid the Coronavirus, colds, flu and other viruses.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If you don’t ave soap or water available, use an alcohol-based hand santizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching common public surfaces that other people touch – like door panels, doorknobs etc.
  • Clean and frequently disinfect surfaces and objects (like your mobile phone) that are frequently touched. You can use a regular household cleaner or wipe for this.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill or showing symptoms.
  • If you are ill, stay home.
  • If you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, and then throw the tissue immediately in the bin.


Here are some other thing you can do to boost your immunity:

  • Get enough sleep. This can help improve your body’s natural immune function.
  • Reduce stress. Chronic stress appears to wear down your immune system and make you more vulnerable to illness.
  • Eat a healthy and balanced diet (low in sugar). A balanced diet rich in antioxidants (found in vegetables and fruits) and healthy fats can help support your immune system.
  • Stay hydrated. Drinking water helps your cells operate optimally, plus it helps you body more easily process food and eliminate waste.
  • Exercise. Moderate to intense workouts lasting under an hour help boost your immune system both immediately and in the long run.
