According to latest reports on the coronavirus situation, people over 60 are the most likely to be infected with the spreading disease. For those of us in our later years, it’s critical that we take all the necessary precautions to avoid being hit by it. If you are a seasoned citizen, follow some simple, but potentially vital, rules.
Until the emergency ends, stay away from close-packed crowds. This includes your local supermarkets and restaurants during busy hours, airport lounges, commuter buses, city subways, theaters, crowded sports events and other locations where you’re very close to people.
Wash your hands with strong soap or stronger cleanser before and after meals. Also wash thoroughly after using the bathroom and after touching door handles, railings, tools and other dirty surfaces.
If you haven’t washed your hands for an hour or more, don’t touch your face nor bare skin of others. This is especially critical for vulnerable elderly and children. http://www.cnn.com/2020/03/12/health/what-60-older-need-to-know-coronavirus-wellness
