What does the WHO recommend?
Basic protection measures against the new coronavirus
Keep up to date with the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak, which can be accessed on the WHO website and through relevant public health authorities at the national and local levels. COVID-19 continues to mainly affect China's population, although outbreaks have occurred in other countries. Most people who become infected have a mild illness and recover, but in other cases it can be more serious. Take care of your health and protect others through the following measures:
Wash your hands frequently
Wash your hands often with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer or soap and water.
Why? Washing your hands with an alcohol-based disinfectant or soap and water kills the virus if it is on your hands.
Take respiratory hygiene measures
When coughing or sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with your elbow flexed or with a tissue. Throw the tissue away immediately and wash your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer or soap and water.
Why? Covering the mouth and nose during a cough or sneeze prevents the spread of germs and viruses. If you sneeze or cough with your hands, you can contaminate the objects or people you touch.
Maintain social distance
Keep at least 1 meter (3 feet) away from yourself and others, particularly those who cough, sneeze, and have a fever.
Why? When someone with a respiratory illness, such as a 2019-nCoV infection, coughs or sneezes, they project small droplets that contain the virus. If it is too close, you can inhale the virus.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
Why? The hands touch many surfaces that may be contaminated with the virus. If you touch your eyes, nose, or mouth with contaminated hands, you can transfer the virus from the surface to yourself.
If you have fever, cough, and shortness of breath, get medical attention early
Please tell your healthcare provider if you have traveled to an area of China where the presence of 2019-nCoV has been reported, or if you have had close contact with someone who has traveled from China and has respiratory symptoms.
Why? Whenever you have a fever, cough, and shortness of breath, it is important to seek medical attention immediately, as these symptoms may be due to a respiratory infection or other serious condition. Respiratory symptoms with fever can have a variety of causes, and depending on your travel history and personal circumstances, the 2019-nCoV could be one of them.
