Coronavirus pandemic, which originated in China, has so far claimed over 21,000 lives across the world. More than 4 lakh people are infected by COVID-19 in over 197 countries. In India, the total number of positive COVID-19 cases stands over 680 with 17 people dead. On the other hand, Australian health authorities said the deaths due to the coronavirus outbreak in the country has touched 12 with the demise of three elderly persons while the total number of infections has risen to nearly 2,800. The deadly coronavirus has infected 4,71,518 people and caused 21,293 deaths, according to the Johns Hopkins coronavirus tracker.
With no known cure so far for the coronavirus, the pandemic has become a major issue for the entire world. However, there are a few ways by which we can protect ourselves from coronavirus or COVID-19 such as washing hands, avoiding close contact, staying indoors, and social distancing, among others. Importantly, to prevent ourselves from coronavirus, we must build our immune system stronger.
It is to be noted that many of us are already engaged in behaviours including drinking alcohol, not sleeping enough, and stressing out too much which actively work against our immune systems.
