2. IMMUNITY BOOSTING DIET

When one turns old, their immunity decreases which do not help in fighting the viruses. The best way to ensure keeping the immunity up is to eat a healthy nourishing diet. 

3. AVOID ALL CONTACTS

One of the major reasons behind the spread of virus is in contact with an infected person. While self-quarantine ensures that you don’t come in contact with the outside world, it is also important to avoid touching packages, doorknobs or even the newspaper. They could be infected with the virus.

4. WASH HANDS

Chances are there are people coming in and stepping out after doing important chores like Grocery shopping. If they end up touching them, washing the hands and face with soap and water is the right thing to do. The same goes for them when they touch something as simple as a newspaper.

5. DO NOT BELIEVE IN MYTHS

Grandparents and parents tend to fall into the trap of fake news. Ensure that all their facts are cleared and they do not indulge in any activities or home-remedies by panicking.

6. CONSULT A DOCTOR
