How to Help Prevent the Coronavirus
While reading this latest ultimate BargainBrute.Com "How-To Article," please remember that over the past few weeks, many myths and sheer cases of alarmism have sprung up around the internet about the SARS-CoV-2 or Coronavirus.
This "How To Article" is not intended to alarm anyone; it is meant just for advice on minimizing the chances of contracting the virus if it should spring up within your neighborhood. Authors note: Be careful and alert if you feel you have contracted the virus seek medical health immediately.
As of today, the Coronavirus has affected 79,773 people in 37 countries. Of these, 2,629 are said to have perished from the sickness. On a good note, 25,272 have made a full recovery as of the 24th February 2020.
With many fresh outbreaks of a new strain of Coronavirus or SARS-CoV-2 reported, you may be worried about catching the virus yourself. However, while the Coronavirus can be severe, several preemptive measures can help protect your health both in public, at home, or while caring for a sick individual.
The "Coronavirus" is what we call a lingering virus. It is very talented at hiding on everyday surfaces like door handles, countertops, and of course, meat products. So with this in mind, it is important not to touch your eyes, mouth, or nose as this virus can linger on your fingers before being passed into your body by invading your body cavities.
The only answer to the above is to wash your hands regularly with warm water and hand soap, and I do not mean quick swill, clean them thoroughly for at least 30 seconds, more if possible. If you do not have access to running water, then use a good sanitizer made up of at least 60% of alcohol, and last but not least, do not forget to wash your hands after handling meat products or just before you eat.
Everyone is busy, so no matter what you do to avoid it, you will contact large groups of people while going about your everyday activities. My advice is to simply look-out for people who are displaying classic flu-like symptoms like sneezing and coughing. Both symptoms spread the disease through the air.
To minimize the above, always try to cover both your mouth and nose, use an old scarf or hanky, remembering to dispose of them or wash them regularly. Better still, use a properly fitting mask.

Once you have found a correctly fitted facemask, one word of caution, make sure that when you remove it from your face, you utilize the following procedure. It will help aid in your protection.
Do not take the mask away from your face by pulling on the nose and mouth covering. This will pass the germs onto your hands. To correctly remove the mask, grasp the strings holding the mask behind your ears and remove, do not touch the actual mask covering, dispose of it correctly.
Washing of clothes and linens: If you are in or believe you are in an affected area, I am sorry to say that many of your everyday items, including clothing, bedding, and towels, can become a breeding ground for the new Coronavirus, so you must wash all of these items regularly in the following fashion.
1: Use the heavy-duty setting on your washing machine
2: Wash on the hottest setting
3: Where possible, add a cap-full of color-safe bleach along with your detergent.
The above procedure will help sanitize against most known viruses.
Meat and eggs are a breeding ground for most known viruses, so all must be cooked thoroughly if you are to stand any chance of killing any germs at all. With this in mind, ensure you cook the following products until they have reached their correct internal temperature.
Turkey and Chicken = 165 degrees Fahrenheit or 74 degrees Celcius.
Beef or Pork = 145 degrees Fahrenheit or 63 degrees Celcius.
Ground meat = 160 degrees Fahrenheit or 71 degrees Celcius.
Eggs must reach at least 160 degrees Fahrenheit or 71 degrees Celcius.
