It is natural to be concerned about any potential threats that may cause harm to you or your family - no matter whether the threat is financial, emotional or health related. However, with the right information, you might find ease and comfort in knowing the facts.
In this article, we want to help you remain educated and informed on what’s happening in the world and include some tips to help you get through this issue without uncertainly or fear.
While most of the cases of the coronavirus are still outside of the United States, it makes sense to take an unbiased look at how this potentially unknown virus may affect you and your family. So, let’s get started:
Watch The News, But Don’t Take Everything At Face Value.
Reading articles or watching the news is vital to staying informed. However, one thing to keep in mind is that the purpose of websites, TV and cable stations is to sell advertisements so they can use that money to pay their news anchors and writers.
Unfortunately, some news organizations tend to sensationalize the news to get you coming back again and again. When you do, you’ll be more likely to click on their website ads or buy from their advertisers.
So, when watching the news or reading an article, focus on the facts of the story and not the sensationalized information.
How Dangerous is the Coronavirus?
Since originating in Wuhan, China the virus has spread to Russia, Iran, Latin America, South Korea and India, Canada and other parts of Europe.
Here in the United States, there are almost 60 reported cases. However, thanks to the advance medical facilities and dedication of our medical professionals, the cases in the United States are currently under quarantine.
In addition, the United States is the most advanced country in the world when it comes to fighting disease and health-related outbreaks. So the United States is able to offer its citizens a level of care and comfort not available in other parts of the world.

How to Prevent the Coronavirus
As you watch TV or see photos of individuals across the world in coronavirus-related news stories, you may notice that many of these people are wearing medical scrubs, gloves and face masks. This is a simple prevention to exposure to the virus.
Currently, there is no actual cure for this virus, but here are a few other simple ideas on how to stay safe:
- Wash your hands several times per day. Especially, after touching doorknobs, public counter tops, etc. A good rule of thumb is to wash your hands after you return from public areas.
- Avoid touching your face. Especially, if you haven’t washed your hands.
- Wipe down areas of your home and office that you come into contact frequently. These areas include your computer keyboard, your office desk, your cellphone, your office door handle, TV remote, coffee pot handle, toilet handle, etc.
- Increase your antioxidant and vitamin consumption. Take multi-vitamins, vitamin C tablets and drink antioxidant-rich cherry juice.
- 1-ounce of cherry juice concentrate delivers 12000 ORAC units. Nutritionists recommend adults should get at least 5000 – 8000 ORAC units per day. So just 1-ounce of cherry juice concentrate mixed with water delivers over 2X the amount recommended. :)
The CDC (Center for Disease Control) has made public announcements and press releases on how it is keeping tabs and sharing information with the general public. This is great news that the CDC is working to keep us informed with open communication during times like these.
