Are you worried about the coronavirus?
How to protect yourself from the virus
This is what you should do:
- Wash your hands carefully with soap for at least 20 seconds.
- Don’t shake hands or kiss when you meet people.
- Cover your mouth and nose with your sleeve or a tissue if you sneeze or cough.
- Avoid contact with people as well as public gatherings, shops and restaurants. Don’t invite anyone over, call them on the telephone instead.
If you are experiencing symptoms such as a fever, runny nose, sore throat, you can stay at home and rest. If you have serious symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, seek medical help.
Children can attend day care and schools, if they are still open. Follow the guidelines you will get from schools and day cares.
