People can get infected by eating infected meat (mostly in the Asian region, but experts recommend to cook meat properly anyway) or by contacting droplets from coughing or sneezing.
First of all, you should avoid attending public gatherings (performances, concerts, etc) and limit your visits to any places where you can meet many people (shopping malls, subway, etc) — for example, use a car instead of public transportation.
Do not shake hands with people, stay away from people having symptoms of a flu-like disease (the WHO recommends to keep at least 1-meter distance). Wash your hands often, wash them for at least 20 seconds, try to use soap or sanitizers. Do not touch your eyes, mouth and nose. The virus cannot get inside your body "through" your skin but it can get there "through" your mucosa.
Please, teach your children to follow these rules — the virus is not dangerous for kids, but they may bring the virus home if they do not follow them. As the virus is dangerous mostly for people in their 70s and 80s, take care of your elders. It is even better to transport them to rural (not highly populated) areas. There is not enough evidence that wearing masks will help those who do not have any symptoms, but masks could help not to spread drops of saliva if symptoms are present. So, please, stay at home if you are sick and wear a mask to minimize risks for your family.
It is better to avoid places that are close to the current centers of the outbreak. Though, travelling to the center of the outbreak can be even impossible because of quarantine in such areas and restrictions put by countries.
Since we do not know how to treat most of the viruses, we usually treat symptoms (drink a lot of water to be properly hydrated, use medicines to treat cough and sneezing, stay in bed, etc). There are no target drugs for the coronavirus available yet. If you have any symptoms, please, consult with your doctor and follow the prescriptions.
