"Prevention is better than cure" is a common saying that in times of pandemic, it is useful to consider.

Luigi Fontana, professor of medicine and nutrition at the University of Sydney and director of the Research Center on Longevity and Health of the Charles Perkins Center, explains how staying healthy through nutrition and a balanced lifestyle could help reduce the risk of coronavirus.

People in Australia must stay at least 1.5 metres away from others and gatherings are limited to two people unless you are with your family or household. 

If you believe you may have contracted the virus, call your doctor (don’t visit) or contact the national Coronavirus Health Information Hotline on 1800 020 080. 

If you are struggling to breathe or experiencing a medical emergency, call 000. SBS is committed to informing Australia’s diverse communities about the latest COVID-19 developments. 

The federal government's coronavirus tracing app COVIDSafe is available for download from your phone's app store.

News and information is available in 63 languages at sbs.com.au/coronavirus.
