   The rapidly spreading virus, the Novel Coronavirus, has infected more than 42, 600 people and killed at least 1,016 people in mainland China. The fast spread of this virus has prompted global alarm as well.

      As the virus is an entirely new strain, and it’s spreading quickly, Calit ES teachers, together with our principal, Mr. Cristito C. Aquino, educated our pupils with the facts, symptoms, risks, and preventive measures of the 2019-nCOV. We also kept them abreast of the latest issues about the coronavirus. 

As with other infectious diseases, we had taught them some simple steps to help prevent 2019-nCOV from spreading. These include good personal hygiene practices like frequent handwashing, avoid touching the eyes, mouth, and nose with unclean hands, covering the mouth, and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing, and encouraging others to do the same. We likewise taught them lessons to keep their immune systems healthy because, until now, there is currently no vaccine against n-COV. As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure.
