In 1918 the deadly outbreak of influenza tore across the globe infecting more than 500 million people out of which 20-30 million people end up being dead. On the other hand corona virus has just infected 8 million people out which about 3.5 million has recovered. The reason is that unlike other viruses COVID-19 have 3 stages going from normal to mild and then from mild to severe. Almost most of the people infected from this virus had mild symptoms and recovered soon by following the precautionary steps.

So you may or may not know the person you are going to met is infected or not. So best thing you can do is to put a face mask. Although its more important that the man who is infected use it because his coughing droplets can go in air to some distance but WHO has advised everybody to use face mask until we get rid of the virus.
The other safety gear is gloves. If you are in habit of shaking hands and tapping shoulder etc. Then it is highly recommended to use gloves too. Once used can not be used twice so dispose the gloves after using it in some safe environment.

As this virus spreads from person to person, So if you will hangout just for fun or for meeting with friends then there is a high percentage of chance that you will end up getting infected by this virus. Many countries have imposed lockdown in their cities to force people stay at home but unfortunately many of us are not taking this virus a serious issue and as result becoming the source of spreading this infection.
