Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) is affecting countries and territories all over the world. Along with the government, we are doing our best to help prevent the spread of the virus and secure the safety of everyone.
Here are some of the information from the World Health Organization (WHO) that you need to know about COVID-19.
How it spreads?
Coronavirus disease spreads through contact with an infected person when they cough or sneeze. It also spreads when a person touches a surface or object that has the virus on it, then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth. So, it is essential to wash hands regularly and avoid touching your face.
What are the symptoms?
People may be sick with the virus for 1 to 14 days before developing symptoms. The most common symptoms of the virus are fever, tiredness, and dry cough.
If you have mild symptoms, stay at home until you’ve recovered. Relieve your symptoms by doing this.
- rest and sleep
- keep warm
- drink plenty of liquids and vitamins
Here’s what you need to do to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus Disease.
- Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a disposable tissue or flexed elbow when you cough or sneeze
- Avoid close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with sick people.
- Stay home and self-isolate from others in the household if you feel unwell.
