COVID-19: Protect yourself and others

It’s important to protect yourself and protect others too. As with other coronaviruses, droplet infection seems to be the main mode of transmission. The virus enters the human body through the mouth or nose. This can happen by breathing in infected droplets, or by touching with your hands a surface in which droplets have landed, and then touching your mouth or nose later. As a result, simple infection control measures such as hand-washing and cough and sneeze etiquette are effective and important for prevention.
