Stay safe during the pandemic

Stay safe during the pandemic

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has a page for Covid-19 with information about the virus, news and guidelines on how to protect yourself. Here are their recommendations:

  • Wash your hands frequently using soap or an alcohol-based sanitiser.
  • Maintain social distancing of one metre between yourself and others.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth because your hands can transfer the virus.
  • Cover your mouth and nose if you cough/sneeze into a bent elbow or tissue to protect those around you.
  • Seek medical help early if you show symptoms. These include fever, cough and difficulty breathing.
  • Stay informed and follow the advice given by healthcare providers and authorities.
