⓺ Health Authority announced that this virus is highly contagious and very dangerous. The virus is able to enter your body if your throat or throat mucous is dry. Ensure your throat or throat mucous is always in a moist condition. Don’t allow your throat to become dry, as in 10 minutes of being dry, the virus will find ways to enter into your body. The idea is to “Keep your Throat Constantly Moist.” Drink plenty of water when your throat feels dry. Basically, just drink plenty of water and always have a bottle of water handy:
🔘 For adults — 50-80cc; and
🔘 For children — 30-50cc.
⓻ Avoid crowded places, MTR or public Transport, and wear a mask as a precaution.
⓼ *Avoid deep fried food and take plenty of Vitamin C. *

🔘 fast and high fever, hard to lower, but if successful, the fever will return very soon.
🔘 next stage is coughing, in long duration, people affected are mainly children.
🔘 adults have mainly throat symptoms, together with headaches and physical discomforts.
⓾ The virus is “highly” contagious. The elderly and young children are most susceptible. Take super precaution.
