Stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak, through the WHO website and your national and local public health authority. Most individuals that are infected experience mild illness and recover. However, some could experience more symptoms. Take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:
- Wash your hands frequently
Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash your hands with soap and water. Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.
- Maintain social distancing
Maintain a distance of at least 1 meter (3 feet) between you and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth that may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.
- Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. The virus can then enter your body and replicate and infect your body.
- Practice respiratory hygiene
Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or use a paper tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you are using paper tissue, forthwith dispose the tissue after use.
- Stay home if you feel unwell.
If you have fever, cough and/or difficulty in breathing, seek immediate medical attention. Follow the guidance of your local and national health authority. National and local authorities have the most up-to-date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent the spread of viruses and other infections.
Stay informed and follow the advice provided by your healthcare provider.
Protective measures for persons who are in or have recently visited (past 14 days) areas where COVID-19 is spreading.
