How yoga can help in prevention of coronavirus COVID‑19/ other virus

As we know the people with good immune system are at low risk. There are more than 200 different viruses that can enter our body at any moment. In our hectic, everyday lives, we're prone to runny noses, coughs, head colds, stomach aches and many other illnesses we can certainly work our way to strengthen our defense mechanism. Yoga, perhaps, is one of the most effective and time-tested natural immunity boosters that we can adopt for a healthier life.
Colds are caused by bacteria that affect the upper respiratory system, causing stuffiness, coughing, and sore throat. If the immune system is weak, the bacteria can go into the lungs and cause bronchitis or pneumonia. Yoga is one of the main tools for maintaining the health of our respiratory system. Breathing technique and asana (posture) help improve the mechanical efficiency of our lungs by conditioning the repertory tract that increases the elasticity and strength of the whole lung. This helps prevent infection
Some Pranayama (Breathing Techniques) to boost your immune system.

Yogic breathing is known as Pranayama (Breathing Techniques). Stress is one of the most serious reasons for poor immune system. When you are stressed out your internal environment is unbalanced and bacteria and viruses start attacking the body. Pranayama (Breathing Techniques) reduces stress levels and fight against anxiety to boost immune system. Through Pranayama (Breathing Techniques) we control our breathing elongating the inhales and exhales which help to improve our nervous system, provide more oxygen in our blood and anxiety levels begin to abate. Consequently our body automatically re-balances and restores immune system. 
1. Bhramari Pranayama (The Humming Bee Breathing Technique)
2. Kapalbhati Pranayama (Forehead Shining Breathing Technique)
3. Anuloma Viloma Pranayama (Alternate Nostril Breathing Technique)
4. Bhastrika Pranayama (Bellow Breathing Technique – Breath of Fire)
