COVID-19 Precaution

COVID-19

The current global situation surrounding COVID-19 or coronavirus has caused a deep concern on hygiene and cleanliness to prevent it from further spreading and affecting countries worldwide. Malaysia has not been spared of this calamity however the important thing is not to panic but to be accurately informed on this disease and take the necessary steps to prevent it from spreading and harming ourselves and the people around us.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhoea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don’t feel unwell.

How does COVID-19 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.
