There’s currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
You can protect yourself and help prevent spreading the virus to others if you:
-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 people who are unwell.
-Stay home and self-isolate from others in the household if you feel unwell.
-Touch your eyes, nose, or mouth if your hands are not clean.
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus. The disease causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing. You can protect yourself by washing your hands frequently, avoiding touching your face, and avoiding close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell.
HOW IT SPREADS
Coronavirus disease spreads primarily 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.
