The Coronavirus: Should We Be Worried? Here are the Real Facts

  1. Do not plan a visit to China anytime soon.
  2. Frequently clean hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water, especially after coughing, sneezing or using the washroom, and before handling or preparing food.
  3. Avoid close contact with anyone who has a fever and cough
  4. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care and share previous travel history with your healthcare provider.
  5. Wear medical-grade masks in heavily crowded areas.
  6. When coughing and sneezing cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue — throw tissue away immediately and wash hands
  7. Avoid consuming raw or under-cooked animal products. Raw meat, milk or animal organs should be handled with care, to avoid cross-contamination with uncooked foods, as per good food safety practices.
