How can I protect myself?


As with influenza and other respiratory diseases, adhering to the rules for coughing and sneezing, good hand hygiene and keeping a distance of about 1 to 2 metres from the sick also protects against transmission of the new coronavirus. Shaking hands should also be avoided.
