How to minimize your risks of catching the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Practice these safety measures in your daily routine to increase your chances of staying Coronavirus Free.
Jaden Matthews-Johnson's curator insight, March 30, 2020 11:51 PM
One of the more effewctive ways that one can minimize the spread of coronavirus is by washing ones hands for 20 seconds every time. The virus can live on surfaces for up to three days and is airborne by droplets from coughing and sneezing. On plastics or shiny surfaces it can live up to three days but on fabric and absorbant things it becomes inactive very quickly.
