This months blog had to be the hot topic on everyones lips across the UK – Coronavirus (Covid19). As the virus has spread across the country, putting all of our events on hold, we decided to give some tips and advice on how to keep yourselves healthy at home during the virus outbreak.
Our managing director Ali Waheed graduated in microbiology – the study of viruses and bacterial infections then later doing a masters in the topic before setting up Mr Flavour.
“I think the difference in bacteria and viral infections is generally misunderstood and with the spread of the corona virus, if we can help increase educating and understanding of the virus during this tough time then it is our duty to our audience here at Mr Flavour.”Ali Waheed, Managing Director
There are a lot of great sources for information on the virus and a lot of bogus ones, so getting the correct information is key to eliminating the virus. Coronaviruses (COV) are a large family of viruses. Coronaviruses are zoonotic, which means they are transmitted between animals and people. Common signs of infection are:-
Your first point of call should be the guidelines provided by the NHS. With the healthcare system being stretched and our heroes at the NHS working through the clock to help aid in this pandemic, there is a responsibility on us all to leave our healthcare to those most in need. The 2 most common symptoms seem to be:-
If these symptoms show, please do not go to GP surgeries, pharmacies or hospitals. There is no need to contact emergency numbers to tell them you are in self isolation at home either. Everyone should do what they can to stop coronavirus spreading. It is particularly important for people who:
With mild panic spreading into homes across the nation and viral videos of the ‘toilet roll’ pandemic, here are a few tips to maintain a healthy wellbeing at home.
Not so much a tip to keep healthy but it is so important to have a selfless mentality, going to supermarkets and overbuying makes it hard for those in need and is unnecessary. Ask yourself carefully are 200 toilet rolls and 24 loafs of bread REALLY necessary? Didn’t think so. Wastage is a crime when all amenities are limited.
Now, more than ever it is important to actively look after your immune system at home, aid your body by providing it the bodyblocks it needs; vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and hydration. This is even more important if you are prone to chest infections, flu seasons and have a weak immune system.
Being active aids your fitness, making you stronger and helping you to manage healthy conditions. Physical activity helps you increase the strength of your breathing muscles, heart and aids your blood circulation. Just because you can’t go gym doesnt mean you can’t do a home workout, 10 minutes of stairs daily or a garden workout weather permitting.

Peppermint contains menthol, which relaxes and soothes the respiratory tract. Smoothies also aid in keeping our bodies well hydrated.
Probably the hardest one to control is stress. What will happen to my finances? Will I lose my job? How are other loved ones? How do I protect my family?
With so many thoughts going on in our heads, it’s easier said than done to say don’t stress, but here are a few pointers that hopefully can help:-
