Prevention is better than cure specially right now when there is no cure for 2019 Coronavirus Disease (Covid 19). Since there are no known cure for this new disease but it’s symptoms are already known as it can be found published on the internet and news media.
The Symptoms for this disease are:

- and difficulty in breathing (severe cases)
The symptoms are known already so we must prevent to have one of those listed symptoms. World Health Organization have released an advice on how we can protect our selves being contaminated with this new virus.
It is said that cleaning our hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer will kill the viruses that are present in our hands. We must cover our mouth when coughing or sneezing then sanitize again our hands to prevent the spread of contamination.
The main public scare here is when a person sneeze or cough, people will think that you are infected with Coronavirus. And with that Social Distancing of 3 feet apart are advised so that we can avoid contamination.
Again we are warned to distance our selves to the persons with cough and fever. So at this moment, when you have cough and fever you will be likely a scare bomb to the public. With this we must take care of ourselves and strengthen our immune system so that we do not get sick.
Our Ancestors have taught us simple techniques on how to strengthen our immunity and that is through drinking Salabat (Ginger) Tea. It is believed that drinking Ginger Tea will help you in the following areas:
- Relieve Nausea
- Improve Stomach performance
- Reduce Inflamation
- Fight Respiratory problems

- and Relieve Stress
Aside from drinking Ginger Tea, we can use the infused rhizomes of Ginger as disinfectant. So there is no need to panic buying on rubbing alcohol or hand sanitiser because we can use Ginger Tea to disinfectour hands to kill viruses.
