Covid-19 Contagion

How does COVID-19 Spread?

The virus causing COVID-19 can be spread from person-to-person through Close contact with someone who has the virus. COVID-19 transmits when people breathe in air contaminated by droplets and small airborne particles. The risk of breathing these in is highest when people are in close proximity, but they can be inhaled over longer distances, particularly indoors. The “Three C’s” are a useful way to think about this. They describe settings where transmission of the COVID-19 virus spreads more easily:

Covid-19 Prevention

Take steps to protect yourself

Just because you do not show signs of infection does not mean that you are not carrying COVID-19. Being young or having a healthy immune system does not mean you cannot contract COVID-19 or spread it.

You can still contract and transmit the virus to others who are more at risk, such as elders, the sick, or the very young.

Wear a mask

N95 Masks are effective against 95% of known viruses. They can help prevent you from infecting others, and slow the spread of COVID-19.

Cover caugh & sneezes

Covering your mouth with your elbow or a tissue if you cough or sneeze, throw the tissue away and wash your hands immediately.

Clean & disinfectant

Washing your hands often and thoroughly with soap and water (For 20 seconds at least!) and sanitise your hand often.

World HEALTH ORGANIZATION

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Most people infected with the virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. However, some will become seriously ill and require medical attention. Older people and those with underlying medical conditions like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, or cancer are more likely to develop serious illness. Anyone can get sick with COVID-19 and become seriously ill or die at any age.

The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is to be well informed about the disease and how the virus spreads. Protect yourself and others from infection by staying at least 1 metre apart from others, wearing a properly fitted mask, and washing your hands or using an alcohol-based rub frequently. Get vaccinated when it’s your turn and follow local guidance.

The virus can spread from an infected person’s mouth or nose in small liquid particles when they cough, sneeze, speak, sing or breathe. These particles range from larger respiratory droplets to smaller aerosols. It is important to practice respiratory etiquette, for example by coughing into a flexed elbow, and to stay home and self-isolate until you recover if you feel unwell.
