While these may appear to temporarily keep boredom or anxiety at bay, they will surely affect the body over a period of time and as such must be avoided at all costs.
  2. Shunning or criticising people with a COVID infection adds to their stress and your own anxiety. Like all patients, they require your care and support
  3. Be a trusted friend. If you know someone who might have the infection, tell them about precautions, and how to obtain medical assistance
