These health "events" happen every few years for a reason. You can blame it on population control, the Universe, etc. It really doesn't matter because it's something everyone will have to deal with. The current events are affecting the most vulnerable populations at this time...the elderly and young children. Those with unhealthy systems are also vulnerable for more serious cases.
If you're a healthy adult however, you should be fine. You simply need to take precautions by staying healthy, avoiding crowds, washing your hands, etc. A lot of the health advice that I've provided already should help. I'm not a doctor though. If you're looking for some healthy tips to treat viruses like the flu, try visiting some WebMD pages like the one HERE. You can also do your own research for other alternative treatments. The advice is also good for allergy seasons like the neti pot/nasal irrigation. Salt water rinses and gargles are quite effective. You can also start your morning off right with a nice hot cup of garlic lemon tea or ginger lemon tea. Both are alkaline in the body as well!
I've spoken about the Universe vibrating in 3s. Expect this current virus to vibrate the same. It could go to Fall and/or Winter is all I'm saying for now. Different countries can see different results. Be mindful. :)
This is a wonderful opportunity to build healthy living habits though. Semi introverts like myself may be the best off right now. Taking more time to yourself is never a bad thing. Get in your "me time". :)
