What is the new corona virus?

Corona viruses have been around for a long time. There are different strains. Usually these viruses only cause mild symptoms, such as colds. The new corona virus can cause more severe symptoms, such as pneumonia.

How does the corona virus spread?

The virus spreads from person to person.

  • If a contaminated person coughs or sneezes, small droplets get into the air. You can breathe those in.
  • These droplets can also get onto your hands, for example, if you shake hands with someone, or if someone near you sneezes. If you then touch your eyes, mouth, nose or throat with your hands, the virus can enter your body.

The sicker someone is, the more of the virus he or she spreads. Someone who’s not very sick, spreads less of the virus.
Someone without symptoms does not spread the virus.

You can’t get the virus from post or parcels. The virus can’t survive well outside of the body.

How do I prevent contamination?

Tips to help you prevent getting or spreading the virus:

  • Wash your hands often with water and soap. Dry them with a paper towel and dispose of it.
  • Only use hand alcohol or hand gel when there is no tap or soap available. For example after blowing your nose.
  • Cough and sneeze into the inside of your elbow.
  • Touch your eyes, nose and mouth as little as possible.
  • Use paper tissues to blow your nose.
  • Stay 2 metres away from people who are coughing or sneezing.
