Well, there isn't a playbook for the novel Coronovirus, There isn't any accurate guideline explaining the do's and don'ts of what exactly must be done to keep oneself safe from the deadly virus. 

The fact is, everything appears highly uncertain and this makes everyone fearful and anxious about the future. Besides, being indoors for an extended period of time in order to practice social distancing has resulted in depression and other mental health issues.  Other reasons probably include the fear of losing a job or having lost one, the struggle to pay bills, and worries about the health and safety of themselves and their family.
