Older adults and people with diabetes, heart disease and lung disease are more likely to become severely ill from the virus. The CDC urges these groups to avoid crowds, cruises, unnecessary air travel, to stock up on essential supplies and medications, and to stay home as much as possible. See the CDC's warning.
