COVID-19 is the twenty-first century’s Spanish flu. While the Spanish flu caused such terrible devastation because they didn’t yet have the treatments we have today, that doesn’t mean the current pandemic is any less severe or dangerous.

Catching the coronavirus could lead to severe illness and, in the worst cases, death. You don’t want to suffer. You don’t want to watch your loved ones suffer. The best way to avoid either scenario is to use preventative measures.

The Longstanding Concerns with COVID-19

Mass testing in Iceland of all citizens has told us something big, something horrible. Something everyone needs to know. Almost half of those with the coronavirus are asymptomatic. This means you won’t have a fever and you won’t have a cough or tickly throat. Your body is holding off the virus, but the virus can still be transmitted by you.

If you do catch it and experience symptoms, there is the threat of your lungs drowning and your brain swelling. Even mild symptoms are closer to the worst flu you have ever had.

In short, if you catch the virus, you or your loved ones will either suffer horribly or you will potentially inflict that suffering on someone you care about. As such, prevention is the best course of action. There are many ways to help you prevent COVID-19.

Improve Your Immune System

Immune System

Our immune systems are magical things. If we could properly train them to target specific cells, we could eradicate cancer, but that’s a task for medical research in the future. Your immune system is powerful, but it is not infallible.

When we are healthy, our immune systems are capable of killing intruders before they take hold. It is the reason why some people are more at-risk from COVID-19 than others. Boosting our immune system is one of the best defenses, especially when accompanied with social distancing measures to reduce the chance of becoming infected in the first place.

This can be done by sleeping well, hydrating enough, and ensuring you get all the vitamins and nutrients your body needs. This can be done by preparing food in the right way to preserve the most amount of vitamins, or by kickstarting your immune system with a immune defense IV package.

Socially Distance

Socially Distance

Your immune system is definitely one of the first responders, but it is better if it doesn’t need to be called to action at all. By socially distancing yourself from others, you can reduce the risk of catching the virus in the first place.

Don’t Touch You Face

Try to get in the habit of not touching your face with your hands. This will help reduce the chances of contact and can actually help keep your skin clear and beautiful.

Wash Hands Regularly

Wash Hands

When you are out and about, the antibacterial gel is going to be your best friend. When you have the chance, however, wash your hands thoroughly. The virus cannot survive hot water and soap.

Understand Virus Transmission

If you touch items on the shelf that have been touched by others, then touch your keys, those keys may be covered in the virus. Know how the virus transmits so that you can clean appropriately and stay safe.
