I am trying not to worry to much about this virus, as worry does no good for us. Stress lowers our immune system defences and uses energy we require for far more important things like keeping our bodies strong.
So, what do we need to know?
Being cautious is key.
Let's break this down:
1. Wash your hands
2. Cover your cough
3. Stay home if you are sick
-think about how you and you family can get ready in case.
- make a back-up child care plan if you fall ill.
-make sure you have a supply of essential medications for your family.
-THERE ARE NO CURRENT RECOMMENDATIONS TO WEAR A MASK TO PREVENT THE DISEASE.
KNOW THE FACTS:
-risk for COVID-19 based on travel contacts & exposure to the virus. No radical, ethnic or culture group is more at risk.
-the most common symptoms of COVID-19 are: *fever *cough
*shortness of breath
What else can we do to help ourselves?
-Follow @FCOtravel on Twitter for travel updates.
-Visit GOV.UK: https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response ,for all the updates.
- Cook FRESH FOODS, cut out processed foods that aren't feeding our bodies the nutrients it needs to defend it needs.
