As the virus is found to be able to enter your body if your throat or throat mucous
is dry, make sure to keep your throat or throat mucous in a moist condition. Not to allow your throat to become dry, as in 10 minutes of being dry, the virus will find ways to enter your body. Do not refrain from drinking water, always have a bottle handy.
如果你的喉咙很干,或者喉咙黏膜很干,病毒较容易进入体内,尽量保持喉咙湿润,是一个预防的方法。只要你的喉咙干涸超过10分钟,病毒就容易侵入身体,千万记得要喝水。

For adults, 50-80cc of warm water is recommended; for children 30-50cc. Just drink
if you feel your throat is dry. It is not necessary to drink more than the amount recommended. The idea is to “Keep Your Throat Constantly Moist”.
一口渴,马上喝水,大人每口喝50-80cc,小孩每口喝30-50cc,不需要喝过量的水,只要保持喉咙湿润即可。
