Basic Protective Measures Against The New Coronavirus



Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand rub if your hands are not visibly dirty.

Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub

eliminates the virus if it is on your hands.


Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and other people, particularly those who are coughing, sneezing and have a fever.

When someone who is infected with a respiratory disease, like COVID-19, coughs or sneezes they project small droplets containing the virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the virus.


Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth

Hands touch many surfaces which can be contaminated with the virus. If you touch your eyes, nose or mouth with your contaminated hands, you can transfer the virus from the surface to yourself.
