The Coronavirus continues to affect the economy and every day life. As we all strive to stay safe and updated with this epic situation, here is a list of items compiled from those close to us. These items are tips and preventative suggestions only, in hopes to cure or even kill the virus. We cannot guarantee any/all of the below are 100% accurate; however, we believe it to be helpful based on numerous people informing us of similar information.
1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold;
2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose;
3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. (26-27 Degrees Celsius is equal to 79 – 81 degrees Fahrenheit) This virus does not tolerate the Sun.
4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.
5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours. So if you come into contact with any metal surface, wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap. Don’t touch your face or rub your eyes until you have washed your hands.
6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. Normal laundry detergent will kill it.
7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try to avoid drinking liquids with ice.
8. Wash your hands frequently because the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes. However, a lot can happen during that short time. You can rub your eyes, touch your mouth or nose unwittingly and so on.

2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes an additional 5 - 6 days.
3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.
4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you're drowning. At this point it is imperative that you seek immediate medical attention.
