If going on a flight or taking a public transportation, make sure you wear a mask.
如果坐飛機或大眾運輸工具一定要帶口罩。

5.
If you have to go to the market, make sure you wear a mask. Be very vigilant.

6.
As the virus is found to be able to enter your body if your throat or throat mucous
is dry, make sure to keep your throat or throat mucous in a moist condition. Not to allow your throat to become dry, as in 10 minutes of being dry, the virus will find ways to enter your body. Do not refrain from drinking water, always have a bottle handy.
如果你的喉嚨很乾,或者喉嚨黏膜很乾,病毒較容易進入體內,盡量保持喉嚨濕潤,是一個預防的方法。只要你的喉嚨乾涸超過10分鐘,病毒就容易侵入身體,千萬記得要喝水。

7.
For adults, 50-80cc of warm water is recommended; for children 30-50cc. Just drink
if you feel your throat is dry. It is not necessary to drink more than the amount recommended. The idea is to “Keep Your Throat Constantly Moist”.
一口渴,馬上喝水,大人每口喝50-80cc,小孩每口喝30-50cc,不需要喝過量的水,只要保持喉嚨濕潤即可。
