"In my view, we must start giving importance to coronavirus news from authentic sources such World Health Organisation (WHO) with respect to its symptoms or concerns -- never trust any unverified news from WhatsApp, Twitter or Facebook posts," says Dr Mithileysh Sathiyanarayanan. 

"In addition to that, we must start focusing on building a good immune system, practicing good hygiene measures, exercises/yoga, good sleep, and having healthy food on a daily basis."

According to him, having the right balanced food can help in building a good immune system.

He adds, "Studies show that those who exercise at least 30 minutes a day tend to suffer fewer infections than those who do not. So, keeping oneself fit/active will help build a stronger immune.

"Sleep is important for health in general, and as a bonus, it may also benefit our immune function. Get good sleep.

"Keeping shared spaces such as kitchens and toilets clean by using disinfectants regularly will also play an important role.

"We must always have steamed veggies as salad and never consume raw vegetables."
