A leading medical school in the United States has recommended Yoga, meditation and controlled breathing to address anxiety issues related to the Novel Coronavirus that has now spread fast across America.

There are at least 3,485 cases of the virus in the US, according to the state and local health agencies, governments and the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention. The number of deaths due to the deadly virus is 65.

The Harvard Medical School said in its latest health guideline that Yoga, meditation and controlled breathing are some tried and true ways to relax.

In an article 'Coping with Coronavirus anxiety', John Sharp, a board-certified psychiatrist on the faculty at Harvard Medical School and the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles wrote that regular meditation is very calming.

He said, news about the virus will likely grow worse, then grow better and urged people to listen to public health experts who can help them navigate the path ahead.
