How to reduce chances of being infected and of spreading the pandemic
WASH YOUR HANDS FREQUENTLY
Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol based hand rub or wash them with soap and water, because these actions kill viruses that may be on your hands.
MAINTAIN YOUR DISTANCE WITH OTHERS
Keep a safe distance of at least 1 meter (3 feet) from people. The virus is contained in saliva droplets and can be transmitted by breathing at close range, particularly when they cough, sneeze or have a fever.
COVER YOUR MOUTH AND NOSE
Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately. Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.
FOLLOW RULES INDICATED BY HEALTH AUTHORITIES
Avoid shaking hands and hugging, for the reasons mentioned above. Stay at home as much as possible, following the rules indicated by the authorities. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. This will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.
MASKS ARE EFFECTIVE WITHIN CERTAIN CONDITIONS
If you are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person with COVID-19. Wear a mask if you are coughing or sneezing. Masks are effective only when used in combination with frequent hand-cleaning with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water. If you wear a mask, then you must know how to use it and dispose of it properly.
