How does it spread?

Coronavirus mainly spreads through droplets that are produced as a result of sneezing or coughing of a COVID-19 infected individual.

That happens in two ways:

  • Direct close contact: A person can get the infection by being in close contact with COVID-19 patients (within one Metre of the infected person), especially if they do not cover their face when coughing or sneezing.
  • Indirect contact: the droplets survive on surfaces and clothes for many days. Therefore, touching any such infected surface or cloth and then touching one’s mouth, nose, or eyes can transmit the disease.

How can I protect myself and others from COVID-19?

To protect yourself and others and prevent the spread of COVID-19:

Clean your hands often. Use soap and water or an alcohol-based hand rub.
social distancing
Maintain a safe distance from anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
wear mask
Wear a mask when physical distancing is not possible.
avoid touching face

cough in cover
Cover your nose and mouth with your bent elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
stay home

seek help
