CORONA Virus - COVID 19
General Advice, please do not Call 111, use the website. 111 will be very busy organising admissions to hospitals for those very sick people.
Avoid Catching it! If you touch anything with snot/mucus on it, then touch your face, you will catch up!!
Wash hands with soap: if your not near a sink, then use disinfectants. Stay out of the way from people who are coughing, especially in confined spaces (like surgery waiting rooms). Keep drinking fluids, especially warm ones: Viruses are more likely to be absorbed by cold, dry throats.
AVOID spreading it! You'll be infectious 5 days before you know you have Coronavirus. If you have to cough/sneeze, then cough into a paper tissue and dispose of responsibly. Masks only really limit spreading viruses from sneezing & coughing. Wash your hands frequently in order to reduce spread to others who are unwise enough to be touching their faces!
There is NO cure for Coronavirus & people will NOT be tested unless they are critically ill and need admission.
