Regarding good science on keeping ourselves safe, individual action is 
very important, except we can accomplish much more and this with less 
effort through collective action as borne out by a super CBC Q&Q program 
20200228 providing some honest-to-goodness good science.  For details 
please see "We may have passed the tipping point in the COVID-19 
coronavirus outbreak" @ the following which includes a link to the 15 
minute program segment.

 From other news Canada is one of very few countries that is using early 
detection standards with almost zero human to human transmission while 
countries such as   Italy and Iran have already experiencied explosive 
transmission trends and the US is close behind all because they only 
test once the patients are gravely ill and by that time containment is 
nearly impossible.  California, Washington and New York are at the cusp 
of widespread transmission vectors.

  In short because of our proximity and interexchange with the US, BC 
foremost followed by Ontario East are at greatest risk of being the 
early adopters of this outbreak.

BTW sneezing/coughing into your elbow is actually very poor science as 
explained by Q & Q.  If you cough into your hand, best with a tissue and 
then wash immediately, this is much better science than coughing into 
your elbow when the virus can survive for over a week and each time you 
cross your arms you reinfected your hand...
