[Alert] DEADLY Chinese Virus on the RISE

Dear Reader,

This time of year is like a breeding ground for all kinds of germs and illnesses. Anything from the common cold to more serious things like bronchitis or even the flu.

But now there’s an even bigger risk on the rise. And on top of worrying about all these more “common” bugs, you now have something to add to the top of your list: the coronavirus.

I’m sure you’ve heard of this deadly Chinese virus. After all, it’s making headlines everywhere.

But don’t let the news send you into a panic.

Because there are simple, actionable things you can start doing today to protect yourself.

Now I’m not saying you shouldn’t be concerned about the coronavirus.

After all, the World Health Organization reports that there are over 2,000 cases confirmed worldwide.

And the number of deaths has been rising daily.

Obviously, that’s not something to take lightly. Here’s what you need to know about it:

The first thing to note is that, since this is a virus, your traditional drugs (like antibiotics) won’t work to fight it. And currently, there are no vaccines to prevent you from getting this infection.

And here are four effective tactics to avoid it:

  1. Wash your hands!

This means using soap and warm water and washing under your nails, between your fingers and your wrists for at least 20 seconds. You should wash after anytime you’ve been to a public place, after using the restroom and before eating.

  1. Don’t touch your face.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth, especially when you are out in public places. This will prevent germs from getting into your body.

  1. Boost your immune system.

You can strengthen your immune system by taking supplements like zinc, elderberry, or vitamin C.  These can all help you build a strong immune system that will defend your body naturally against the virus.

Another key to having a strong immune system is a healthy gut. Consider cutting back on sugars, processed foods or grains to keep your gut extra healthy since these are known to ignite an inflammatory response in your body.

  1. Stay home.

Last but not least, stay home and try to avoid large crowds when you can. Most germs are spread in tight spaces filled with lots of people. So, avoiding these spaces will help reduce your risk of exposure.

But if you have to join the masses, try not to stand next to people, keep your mouth covered, and wash your hands as soon as possible to prevent any germs from spreading.
