As with many flus and viruses, the best precaution is good hygiene. Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly and appropriately dispose of coughs, sneezes, mucus etc.

  how to handwash lge

Maintain at least 1 metre distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing, as someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.

If you develop fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical advice promptly as this may be due to a respiratory infection or other serious condition. Call in advance and tell your provider of any recent travel or contact with travelers. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also help to prevent possible spread of COVID-19 and other viruses.
