How Viruses Work– viruses take any chance they can to find a host. They hijack the host's cells and take it over. Viruses use the host cells machinery to make lots of copies, so many that the cell bursts and infects other cells around it.
Safeguard Yourself– Viruses are spread through direct contact with infected individuals or through touch or coming in contact with droplets from sneezes and coughs.
Boost your Immune System– Strengthen your immune system to make sure that if you do contract a virus that you increase the odds of recovering.
