How to PROTECT YOURSELF?
The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), The Expert Body on Coronavirus has released guidance for General Public and healthcare professionals on the symptoms of the virus. How to PROTECT YOURSELF?
What Signs and Symptoms should you look out for
A person could be at risk if they have any or all of the following:
Fever and symptoms of lower respiratory illness, such as coughing or difficulty breathing, after traveling to Wuhan or having close contact with someone who was ill and is now under investigation for the virus in the past two weeks.
Fever or symptoms of lower respiratory illness after having close contact in the past two weeks with someone who’s been confirmed to have the virus.
The CDC defined “close contact” as being within about 6 feet (1.8 m) “or within the room or care area” of a person with the coronavirus for a prolonged period without appropriate protective clothing, or “having direct contact with infectious secretions” of a person with the virus without protective clothing.
People should be Extra Careful:
Coronaviruses are particularly dangerous for people who have weaker immune systems, like young children and older adults
How to protect yourself
To protect yourself from the virus:
Try to avoid contact with people who display symptoms similar to those of pneumonia or the common cold, like coughing or a runny nose.
Don’t touch your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, and scrub for at least 20 seconds.
Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer when possible.
