2. Wash/Sanitize Hands
YES. No matter how many times you see this reminder on the internet, it will really SAVE your life. Nowadays, there is obviously a shortage of hand sanitizers all over the world but handwashing is the easiest way to prevent the disease. It kills germs and physically removes the dirt or any debris on your hands. So please, WASH YOUR HANDS properly for at least twenty seconds. Save the world.
3. Wash Fruits/Vegetables
Store your food properly. Wash all of your fruits and vegetables (and MEAT) before you eat or cook them to ensure that they are clean and safe to eat.

As we’re spending more time at home due to community quarantine, we can still find ways to be active. Exercise is important to physical and emotional health.

To help prevent the spread of germ, keep your nails short and trim them often.
