Protecting Against Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Understanding COVID-19

COVID-19 is the disease caused by the coronavirus. The term "COVID-19" stands for "corona virus disease 2019."

Transmission and Protection

Coronavirus is highly transmissible, primarily through droplets spread when coughing. Protecting yourself is crucial.

Basic Advice:

  • Wash Hands: Thoroughly wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Use Hand Gel: Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are effective alternatives.
  • Cover Coughs and Sneezes: Use a tissue or your sleeve, not your hands, and dispose of tissues immediately.
  • Avoid Close Contact: Stay away from unwell individuals and practice self-isolation if necessary.
  • Avoid Touching Face: Refrain from touching eyes, nose, or mouth to prevent transmission from hands.
  • Practice Good Hygiene: Challenge and alter routines to minimize contact with others.
  • No Treatment: Currently, there is no specific treatment for COVID-19; focus on symptom management.

Stay Vigilant and United

As there is no cure for COVID-19, remaining vigilant and implementing preventive measures are crucial in combating the virus.
