What are the guidelines by WHO to fight against the coronavirus?
The best way to protect yourself from COVID-19 is to clean your hands regularly. Doing this will eliminate the virus in your hands and avoid contact with your eyes, mouth, and nose.
Keep a distance of at least 3 ft between you and anyone with a cough or sneeze.
When someone coughs or sneezes, sprays of small fluids from the nose or mouth can contain the virus. If you are close, and the coughing person is sick, you can breathe in drops, including the COVID-19 virus.
Avoid touching the eyes, nose, and mouth
The hands touch many surfaces and pick up viruses. When contaminated, the hands can transmit the virus to your eyes, nose, or mouth. From there, the virus will enter your body and make you sick.
Make sure you and the people around you are in good breathing hygiene. This means covering the mouth and nose with a curved elbow or tissue when coughing or sneezing. Immediately remove the used tissue.
The droplets spread the virus. Maintaining good breathing hygiene protects the people around you from colds, flu, and COVID-19.
If you feel ill, stay home. If you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call ahead. Follow the instructions of your local health authority.
National and local authorities will have the latest information on the situation in your area. Calling ahead will allow your health care provider to lead you to the right health care faster. This will protect you and prevent the spread of viruses and other infections.
Be aware of the latest developments on COVID-19. Follow the advice given by your health care provider, your national and local public health authority, or your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
National and local authorities will have the latest information on whether COVID-19 is spreading in your area. They are best for advising people in your area what to do to protect themselves.
If you begin to feel sick even with mild symptoms like headache and runny nose until you are well, stay home.
Avoiding contact with others and visits to medical facilities will allow these facilities to operate more efficiently and protect you and others from possible COVID-19 and other viruses.
If you have fever, cough, or shortness of breath, seek medical attention immediately, as this can lead to respiratory infections or other serious conditions. Call ahead and tell your provider about your recent trip or contact the traveler.
