Given the heightened risk of contracting the novel coronavirus, today’s podcast is dedicated to the single best thing you can do to avoid it.
Unquestionably, I am not an alarmist, but sometimes we need to prepare for a possible disruption in our lives like the novel coronavirus.
Also, as of today, March 5, the chances of contracting the novel coronavirus is very low, so please don’t panic. But that doesn’t mean we can’t take precautions.
First off, we are being inundated with new, unfamiliar words and phrases.
For example, SARS-CoV-2 is the official name of the novel coronavirus that is spreading. COVID-19 is the disease it causes.
Most media outlets use the term coronavirus to describe SARS-CoV2 and COVID-19.
Coronaviruses CoV is a family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe respiratory disease.
There are hundreds of coronaviruses, most of which circulate among animals including pigs, camels, bats and cats
As a result, the term novel coronavirus (nCoV), means this virus is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.
It should be noted, that odds are you won’t contract novel coronavirus. Especially if you know how to protect your body from the infection.
Learn today your best defense against the novel coronavirus and the best protection against any flu.
