Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) advice for the public
The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The current risk to the general public is moderate.
You can help too.
Germs can live on some surfaces for hours. To protect yourself and others:
- Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze.
- Bin the tissue, and to kill the germs, wash your hands with soap and water, or use a sanitiser gel.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
- If you have arrived back from a category 1 area immediately self-isolate even if asymptomatic, and call 111 to inform of recent travel.
- If you have travelled from a category 2 area within the last 14 days and develop symptoms of cough or fever or shortness of breath, you should self-isolate and call 111
- SELF-ISOLATE means STAYING INDOORS and avoid contact with other people as you would with the flu
- Call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the country
This is the best way to slow the spread of almost any germs, including Coronavirus.
