What can we all do?:
The single most important thing we can all do in order to slow down transmission of the virus is to promote good infection control. These are simple things we can all do to reduce the risk of respiratory and other infections such as seasonal colds and flu:
- Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
