She ensures that it’s not a disease to be scared off but we just need to be aware of it. We need to be stay away from myths threatening our society that are circulating around and follow some precautionary methods to keep ourselves safe.

A few things that need to be taken care of are we need to maintain safe distance atleast of 6mtrs and clean our hands often with soap and water, or sanitizer. Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth. Stay home if you feel unwell. Also, she highlights the headlines that have been cropping up across that around 90% of people with comparatively stronger immune system will experience a relatively mild form of the disease, and it automatically gets cured over the period of time under necessary observations.
So, over and above taking precautions it is more important to take care of our health by eating healthy, by working out and mainly by not stressing out, take a few minutes each day to meditate, practice good sleep habits and stay socially connected with friends via text, video or a phone call. We are getting to spend some quality time with our near and dear ones which we otherwise tend to ignore in our busy schedules. She also mentioned if at all we are in any unavoidable situation where we have to go out of our houses, don’t forget to wear masks and gloves.
