What is coronavirus and how you can protect your family from it:
This corona virus, also known as Covid-19 has taken 2020 by storm!
It is affecting people so fast that even the media can’t keep the figures up to date.
The virus is transmitted physically from one person to the other person by the help of shaking hands, touching items with the germ on it and via the air (coughs, sneezes etc). By air, we don’t mean it can travel in the air and reach one region to the other on it’s own. No! A short distance of air is what the virus can travel. The virus can not survive for long other than that.
