How coronavirus is spread

Because it's a new illness, we do not know exactly how coronavirus spreads from person to person.

 

Similar viruses are spread in cough droplets.

 

It's very unlikely it can be spread through things like packages or food.

 

How to avoid catching or spreading coronavirus

  •        wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  •        always wash your hands when you get home or into work
  •        use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  •        cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  •        put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
  •        try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell    Don't
  •        do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean

Travel advice

There are some countries and areas where there's a higher chance of coming into contact with someone with coronavirus.

 

If you're planning to travel abroad and are concerned about coronavirus, see advice for travellers here

 

Treatment for coronavirus

 

There is currently no specific treatment for coronavirus.

Antibiotics do not help, as they do not work against viruses.

Treatment aims to relieve the symptoms while your body fights the illness.

You'll need to stay in isolation, away from other people, until you have recovered.
