To prevent and minimize the spread of COVID-19 infection one needs to:
Hand hygiene is essential; wash hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand rub (sanitizer). Wear a face mask while maintaining a social distance in public. Keep a safe distance from anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
Avoid touching your mouth, eyes, or nose “MEN”. When you cough or sneeze cover your nose and mouth with your bent elbow. Stay at home if you feel unwell.
Seek medical attention if you experience fever, cough, and difficulty in breathing to rule out COVID-19. Avoid contact with anyone with recent travel history until confirmed negative and after completion of isolation. Call the COVID-19 emergency line for direction or seek advice from the closest health facility by calling in advance.
