Dr. Fuller on Coronavirus Precautions & PreventionSince the beginning of this crisis—now pandemic—Dr. Fuller has been addressing precautions that can be taken to avoid getting sick, particularly frequent hand-washing, avoidance of close contact with others, and staying clear of body fluids, even one’s own. She has been warning everyone to not touch their eyes, mouth, or nose, since before this became the mantra of the media. She has advised readers of several publications to remain at home, especially if experiencing cold or flu symptoms. Even if they have a common cold or a more typical strain of flu, erring on the safe side is best, and will also help those who are most vulnerable remain healthy.
Dr. Fuller has been discussing the situation for health professionals, who are at a higher risk than the general population, and what they should do to prevent infection among themselves and their patients.
