COVID-19 is an incredibly contagious respiratory tract infection where lungs are drowned by the fluid flowing in. The symptoms resemble common cold & flu leading to headache, mild fever, trouble breathing, and chest pain along with palpitations. Basically it spreads with mucus of the infected person. It may come through ears, mouth, nose or eyes. Sanitize your hands frequently when soap and water is not available and use anti-bacterial wet wipes to maintain sanitation & hygiene.

  1. Do not rub your eyes and do not touch your face.
  2. Do not bite your nails. We understand the temptation is real but struggling is worth it.
