2) What information sources are reliable?
We recommend that everybody attends only to the information coming from official sources, such as the websites and social media accounts of MOHAP and other health authorities.
3) How can I protect myself from contracting the disease?
The best way to prevent infection is to follow the preventive guidelines and precautions, which currently include staying at home and maintaining a social distance of at least one to two meters between you and people who are not members of your household. – Additional recommended preventive actions against this respiratory virus include the following: – Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand rub. – Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth before washing your hands. – Avoid contact with sick people who show respiratory symptoms. – Make sure that you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your bent elbow when you cough or sneeze. Dispose of the used tissue immediately.
4) How does the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) spread?
People can catch COVID-19 from others who have the virus. The disease can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth which are dispersed when a person with COVID-19 coughs, sneezes or exhales. These droplets land on objects and surfaces around the person. Other people then catch COVID-19 by touching these objects or surfaces, and then touching their eyes, nose or mouth. People can also catch COVID-19 if they breathe in droplets from a person with COVID-19 who coughs or exhales.
