Coronavirus and precautions:

Taking these precautions against the coronavirus can make it easier to win the fight against the epidemic. Some time in the morning should be spent in the sun, do not sit with the rooms closed, but open the doors and windows and let the light sun come into the rooms. Instead of running the AC in closed rooms, sit in the fan air.

The UV rays in the sun's rays affect the protein that has emerged on the outer structure of the virus and weaken the virus. High temperatures or heat have no effect on the virus, but high UV rays weaken the virus.

Heat water and place in a thermos and drink half a cup of lukewarm water every hour. The virus first infects the throat and from there it reaches the lungs, with the use of hot water, the virus goes from the throat to the stomach, where the virus becomes inactive.
