- Avoid going to a densely crowded place.
- Avoid touching your mouth, eyes, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Make use of a tissue to cover your mouth while sneezing and coughing.
- Make regular use of disinfectant on frequently used surfaces and objects.

- Wear a facemask: when around people and in a public place, make sure you wear a good facemask.
- It is best to not share drinking glasses, dishes, utensils, cups, etc. be it home or outside
