 Patients who are at risk for symptoms of acute infection should take care of themselves by getting adequate rest, fluids and nutrition. This is especially important for patients who already have compromised respiratory function. It is okay to palliate symptoms with medications as necessary. Patients who are at risk for symptoms of acute infection should take care of themselves by getting adequate rest, fluids and nutrition.

 +<​blockquote>​There is some debate as to whether viruses are living organisms or not.[7][8] While they do contain genetic material (i.e. the DNA or RNA), and evolve, like any other living organism, they also contain no cell structures (things like a cytoplasm, cell wall, nucleus, et cetera), lack senses or a metabolism, and cannot reproduce independently.[9] The existence of giant viruses that can be "​attacked"​ in the same way as a cell by smaller viruses, has also led to some controversy regarding the definition of life, and whether viruses fit it.</​blockquote>​

 +interestingly wikipedia says 
 +<​blockquote>​The origins of viruses in the evolutionary history of life are unclear: some may have evolved from plasmids—pieces of DNA that can move between cells—while others may have evolved from bacteria. In evolution, viruses are an important means of horizontal gene transfer, which increases genetic diversity in a way analogous to sexual reproduction.[7] Viruses are considered by some biologists to be a life form, because they carry genetic material, reproduce, and evolve through natural selection, although they lack key characteristics (such as cell structure) that are generally considered necessary to count as life. Because they possess some but not all such qualities, viruses have been described as "​organisms at the edge of life"​
