Advice to people
Scientists and doctors are saying that the prevention of coronavirus is in the hands of people themselves and they should strictly follow the guidelines issued to prevent the spread of the pandemic. Scientists and doctors say that wearing a mask, observing social distance of six feet, and keeping away from places where people gather are a must to stay free from the coronavirus.
As the hospitals are full of patients and the cost of treatment is beyond the reach of the common man, it is better to take all the precautions against coronavirus rather than adopting a negligent attitude and then getting panicky about its impact and the costs of treatment.
