  • Wash your hands very often; after visiting the toilet, after touching a dirty surface, before and after eating.
  • Do not drink and drive.
  • Sleep for at least 8 hours in a day.
  • Indulge in fruits; they improve your immune system.
  • Sleep under mosquito treated net especially if you live in mosquito endemic areas like Nigeria
