7 basic protective measures against COVID-19

According to The World Health Organization (WHO), these simple measures will help you protect yourself from the coronavirus and prevent the spread of the disease.

Wash your hands regularly

Scrub your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Use hand sanitizers in the absence of handwashing facilities.

Do not touch your face

Keep your hands away from your eyes, nose, and mouth.

Stay at least one meter away from other people

Avoid sick people or crowded situations. Greet other people without shaking hands.

Stay home

Help slow the spread of COVID-19. Leave home only for essential reasons.

Cover your nose and mouth when coughing

Use a tissue and throw it out afterwards. If you don't have a tissue, sneeze into your elbow, not your hand.

If you experience such symptoms as a cough, fever, or difficulty breathing, contact your healthcare provider to get medical advice.
