Ensure that you keep your mucus membranes moist, and reduce the risk of lesions on your lungs, by inhaling steam everyday (don't burn yourselves!).
Whilst this won't stop you being infected by Covid-19, it will lessen the chances of you developing pneumonia (one of the possible dangerous side effects of a serious Covid-19 infection).

Private Eye is a font of useful information. Their resident doctor (M.D.) says in latest issue ”Evidence suggests that if you're fearful and anxious when and after you contract a virus, it makes the symptoms and long-term sequelae worse. And the UK is currently bingeing on fear”— Stuart Jones (@StuartJones) March 20, 2020

I have lived through:
- the oil shock
- the three day week
- numerous market/property crashes
- dock strikes
- miners' strikes
- power workers' strikes
- sugar shortages
- petrol shortages
- power cuts
- potato shortages
- the drought of 1976 and corresponding water shortage
- toilet roll shortages (yes, a genuine shortage as opposed to a panic bought "temp out of stock" issue)
All of the above might have been, at the time, inconvenient; but they are in the past (forgotten by many) and we moved onwards and upwards.

I am so old that I remember a time when the news headlines tended to change on a daily basis.
Over the last two years the headlines have been as follows (in chronological order):
- General election
Sigh, oh for a simpler more varied time!

We are entering the #COVID19 phase where common sense by everyone needs to be applied:
- Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly
- Avoid large gatherings
- Try to work from home
- Make sure you have food and basic medicines for a possible period of self isolation
- If you think you have the symptoms, call 111. DO NOT GO TO THE HOSPITAL OR DOCTOR!
