How to Protect Yourself from Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Key things you need to know about Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Wash your hands frequently
Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash
them with soap and water.
Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills
viruses that may be on your hands.
Maintain social distancing
Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is
coughing or sneezing.
Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their
nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the
droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands
can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your
body and can make you sick.
Practice respiratory hygiene
Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This
means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or
sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the
people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.
If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early
Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek
medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health
Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the
situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly
direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread
of viruses and other infections.
At Brand7PsCommunications Limited, we encourage everyone to spread the word, not
the virus. Kindly activate social distance, basic hygiene of washing your hands with
soap & water, and follow updates on WHO and other healthcare professionals.
After the war, the Israelites came to Moses and said, “we counted….NO ONE IS
MISSING” (Num 31 vs 49). This will be our testimony at the soon end of the
Coronavirus pandemic in Jesus name. Amen
