How to protect myself and my loved ones from the Coronavirus?

There are some important guidelines you will need to follow in order to protect yourself and your family from the Coronavirus.

  • Wash or clean your hands meticulously and often.
    By washing your hands as often as possible using soap, you make sure to get rid of viruses that might be present on your hands which in turn helps you to refrain from being infected. Additionally, make sure that you avoid placing your hands in your mouth, nose, and eyes without first cleaning them thoroughly as you risk being infected.
  • Avoid getting in touch with people that exhibit the new Coronavirus symptoms such as cough, fever, or sneeze.
  • If you have symptoms like the ones described above or treating a person that is sick, please refrain from getting in touch with elderly people or people that suffer from chronic disease. When you cannot avoid it, please make sure that you clean your hands frequently and thoroughly as well as use masks. If you need to know more on the use of masks and recommendations on personal protective equipment please visit the website of the World Health Organization.
