Preventing COVID-19 Transmission

Understanding COVID-19 Transmission

Learn how COVID-19 spreads and preventive measures:

Transmission via Respiratory Droplets

Fact: COVID-19 spreads through respiratory droplets:

  • Human to human contact and infected surfaces are common sources of transmission.
  • Respiratory droplets are emitted during coughing or sneezing.

Precautions to Take

Important preventive measures:

  • Avoid Close Contact: Stay at least two metres (about six feet) away from anyone showing symptoms.
  • Avoid hugs, kisses, and handshakes to minimize the risk of transmission.
  • Never Touch Your Face: Even when wearing a face mask, avoid touching your face to prevent infection.

Caring for Suspected or Confirmed Cases

If you're caring for someone with COVID-19:

  • Encourage the use of tissues by the infected individual.
  • Ensure you use proper protective gear and maintain hand hygiene.
