Any questions

Any asking?

  • Should I wear a mask to protect myself?

    Only wear a mask if you are ill with COVID-19 symptoms (especially coughing) or looking after someone who may have COVID-19.

  • Are antibiotics effective in preventing or treating COVID-19?

    No. Antibiotics do not work against viruses, they only work on bacterial infections. COVID-19 is caused by a virus, so antibiotics do not work.

  • How is it spread?

    🤧 People can catch COVID-19 from others who have the virus.

    💦 The disease can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales.

    🥄 These droplets land on objects and surfaces around the person.

    👈 Other people then catch COVID-19 by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose or mouth.

    ↔ People can also catch COVID-19 if they breathe in droplets from a person with COVID-19 who coughs out or exhales droplets. This is why it is important to stay more than 1 meter (3 feet) away from a person who is sick.

  • Is there anything I should not do?

    The following measures ARE NOT effective against COVID-19 and can be harmful:

    🚭Smoking

    😷Wearing multiple masks

    💊Taking antibiotics

    In any case, if you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing seek medical care early to reduce the risk of developing a more severe infection and be sure to share your recent travel history with your health care provider.

  • Is it safe to receive a package from any area where COVID-19 has been reported?

    Yes. The likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods is low and the risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 from a package that has been moved, travelled, and exposed to different conditions and temperature is also low.

  • Can I catch COVID-19 from my pet?

    There is no evidence that a dog, cat or any pet can transmit COVID-19. COVID-19 is mainly spread through droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or speaks. To protect yourself clean your hands frequently and thoroughly.
