The resource and information on the WHO website is the best I have personally utilized and follows it standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering of mouth and nose when sneezing, thorough cooking of meat and eggs and to avoid close contacts with anyone showing symptoms of respirating illness such as coughing and sneezing. We must be clear and explicit on the issue and avoid creating confusion. The myths that COVID-19 can't survive certain climatic or weather condition is false clarity by expert. COVID-19 has no medicine yet, the people must be sensitized to follow expert recommendation.
