22. How Can You Best Protect Yourself From Coronavirus?
In order to protect ourselves and others, we must all take careful hygiene measures. The World Health Organisation recommends regularly washing your hands thoroughly with soap.
If you need to cough or sneeze then do so into a tissue and throw this into the bin. If you don’t have tissues then cough or sneeze into your elbow, not your hands; as you are likely to touch things and contaminate them with pathogens.
If you have returned from China in the last 14 days then stay indoors and avoid contact with others for another 14 days. Moreover, avoid crowded spaces or public transportation where you could infect many others.
Most importantly, seek medical advice as soon as possible if you show symptoms of breathing difficulty or flu.
