CAIRO - 17 March 2020: The Ministry of Health and Population pointed out that 80 percent of coronavirus cases heal without any medications due to the body’s resistance if the immunity is high.
The ministry highlighted that a healthy lifestyle must include the consumption of vegetables and fruits, exercising, and good hygienic habits.
The ministry added that the most vulnerable individuals to coronavirus infection are children, the elderly, and those suffering from chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and other heart diseases.
That is why the ministry calls upon citizens to self-isolate at home to avoid the spread of the pandemic given that public transportation and gatherings are a fertile environment for the virus to transmit.
As for ensuring a safe environment at home, the ministry recommends cleaning surfaces using different detergents, and airing the place very well. That is in addition to ensuring continuous personal hygiene.
