Together with our international clients, we have devised the best way to guarantee your health and safety. First things first let's lay down some facts on the COVID-19 virus.
What is COVID-19?
Essentially COVID-19 is a virus strain of coronaviruses (CoV), a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe cases.
COVID-19 is a virus that is spread by those who are infected through respiratory droplets when they sneeze and/or cough. It is also possible to get COVID-19 by touching the surface or an object that virus is on and then touching your own nose, mouth or eyes.
What are COVID-19 Systems?
- Sore throat
- Running nose
In severe cases:
- Breathing problems
How can I prevent it from spreading?
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for a least 15-20 seconds (sing happy birthday to yourself twice and that is the perfect amount of time)
- If there is no soap available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with those are ill
- Stay home and isolate if you are ill
- Cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing either with the crook of your elbow or tissue and immediately wash/disinfect your hands afterwards.
