Here are some quick tips from Dr. Oz on how to keep yourself and those around you safe through the coronavirus outbreak.

Lifestyle. Get at least seven hours of sleep a night, aim to exercise 30 minutes every other day, meditate, and improve air quality by using a humidifier and HEPA filter to reduce virus particles in the air.

Hygiene. Don't shake hands, don't touch your face, triple your hand-washing time to at least 20 seconds, use hand sanitizer that's at least 60% alcohol, use disinfectant sprays instead of wipes on surfaces around the house, and let them sit for three minutes before drying.

Prepare. Have a two-week supply of household items like toilet paper, soap, and detergent, food like canned goods and freezer items, and both prescription and over-the-counter medicines.

Boost your immune system. Eat your fruits and vegetables, take Vitamin D3, and get your flu shot.

If you're sick. Take 80 milligrams of zinc daily, 250 milligrams of Vitamin C twice a day, 250 milligrams of beta-glucan daily and elderberry syrup or lozenges four times a day for five days.
