The world can be scary enough without a global viral threat to deal with.
Well, we’re here to help you become more informed, prevent infection and minimize any panic that may be rising. Try not to get caught up in the mass hysteria that is building.
First things first; why is everyone now calling the Corona Virus, ‘COVID19’? Let’s break it down:
Corona = Co
Virus = Vi
Disease = D
It actually emerged in 2019 with the first case reported in December 2019 = 19
Cool, now we make sure you stay as vigilant and careful as possible – to minimize any risk of infection.
Wash your hands often with soap and water. For 20 seconds at least.
Do your best to avoid close contact with people who are sick. If you need to help your chommi who has a cold, help them, but keep a distance and make sure to sanitize your hands after contact. (don’t thrown their tissues away, let them do that.)
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. (think about how many surfaces you touch, that anyone else in the public could have touched too – ATM buttons, elevator buttons, office kettle. Yup)
Wash your hands.
Instead of shaking hands, a fist bump is best.
Stay home when you are sick. And let your boss / manager / family know that you’re feeling unwell.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Alternatively, cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow. Then WASH YOUR HANDS.
Wash your hands. We know…..
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (sing Happy Birthday to yourself twice ☺), especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
Look after yourselves. Keep your friends and family informed. Wash your hands. Often.
