  1. Strict maintenance of simple personal hygiene
  2. Washing of hands regularly with soap and water
  3. Sanitize our hands if we can afford a sanitizer
  4. Keep appreciable distance from each other and especially strangers
  5. Stay indoor, but if it is extremely important that you need to out, do not go too far from home and ensure you wear face mask during such outing
  6. Be security conscious both at home and outside as the present situation may likely increase the crime tendency especially with hoodlums.
