What is coronavirus?
Coronavirus is a type of virus which can cause respiratory illness. COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus. Symptoms range from a mild cough to pneumonia. Some people recover easily, others (such as the elderly and immune suppressed) may get very sick very quickly, sometimes fatally. The virus is most likely spread through:
- close contact with an infectious person
- contact with droplets from an infected person’s cough or sneeze
- touching objects or surfaces (like doorknobs or tables) that have cough or sneeze droplets from an infected person, and then touching your mouth or face
How to help prevent the spread of COVID 19?
Everyone should practice good hygiene to protect against infections. Measures to prevent the spread of the virus include:
- washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or using a hand sanitiser when this is not available
- using a tissue and cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, dispose of the tissue immediately, or cough or sneeze into your elbow
- avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
- avoiding close contact with others, such as touching, implement social distancing
If you have a confirmed case, you need to self-isolate to prevent it spreading to other people. Surgical masks in the community are only helpful in preventing people who have coronavirus disease from spreading it to others. If you are well, you do not need to wear a surgical mask as there is little evidence supporting the widespread use of surgical masks in healthy people to prevent transmission in public.
