She issued a helpful statement amid alarming news on social media that the said virus has already taken the lives of 17 people in Wuhan City, China.
The tips were also released after a 5-year-old boy from the said country was brought to the hospital in Cebu after being suspected of having the 2019 novel coronavirus.
According to Villa, wearing a mouth mask and drinking a lot of water would be two of the best ways to prevent being infected with the said ailment.
