Bollywood Lessons: How to minimise coronavirus threat

March 17, 2020 12:54 IST

Ever since the coronavirus outbreak, it's all the world is talking about.

While the threat is as real and serious as it gets, prevention and awareness are the only way to minimise it.

And, of course, humour.

Here then are 10 Bollywood-inspired things to protect yourself, from Sukanya Verma.

 

1. Andaz Apna Apna

Don't EVER forget. Coronavirus is HIGHLY contagious.

 

2. Dear Zindagi

Kindly avoid physical contact like greeting folks with a handshake or hug.

 

3. Kedarnath

Instead do an elegant adaab.

 

4. Happy New Year

A good ol' namaste will do just fine.

 

5. Aatish

Wear masks if you are showing symptoms.

 

6. Baadshah

Sneeze with your mouth covered or against your elbow.

 

7. Jab We Met

Resist touching your face at all times.

 

8. Kaun

Social distancing is a great idea right now.

 

9. Dil Dhadakne Do

Say no to your inner Sooraj Barjatya and keep away from crowds and large gatherings.

 

10. Swades

Wash, scrub really, your hands with a good soap or alcoholic sanitiser for a good 40 to 50 seconds rigorously and regularly.
