People with the virus in their noses and throats may leave infected droplets on objects and surfaces (called fomites) when they sneeze, cough on, or touch surfaces, such as tables, doorknobs and handrails. Other people may become infected by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, noses or mouths before cleaning their hands.
The best way to prevent infection is to use PPE or Personal Protective Equipment which you can buy from us, staying at home and maintaining a social distance of at least one to two meters between you and people who are not members of your household. - Additional recommended preventive actions against this respiratory virus include the following: - Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand rub. - Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth before washing your hands. - Avoid contact with sick people who show respiratory symptoms. - Make sure that you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your bent elbow when you cough or sneeze. Dispose of the used tissue immediately.
