The CPS told how to protect from COVID-19 people over 60

1. Novel coronavirus infection is transmitted from an infected to a healthy person through close contact, when a person sneezes or coughs near you. In addition, droplets of mucus from the mouth and nose of the patient fall on surfaces that you touch, and with the hands the virus enters the body, for example, if you are touching the face, rubbing his eyes.

2. The main goal now is to take care of oneself from unnecessary contact. Try less often use public spaces, to ride the subway and other public transport, especially during peak hours. Reduce visits to stores and malls, IFC, banks.

3. Ask children, relatives or social workers to help with payment of utilities, purchase of products or essential goods remotely.

4. If your loved ones returned from overseas and they have appeared signs of a cold – limit contacts and strongly demand that they sought medical help.

5. Wash your hands often with soap and water: after returning from the street, from public places, after contact with the packages from the stores before cooking. Do not touch with dirty hands, face, mouth, nose and eyes – so the virus can enter the body.

6. Stock up on disposable paper handkerchiefs. When you cough or sneeze, cover your wipes mouth and nose and throw them away immediately after use.

7. Also, use wet wipes to disinfect. Wipe their bags, phones, books and other items that were with You in public places and in transport. Please note that cash and plastic cards that pass from hand to hand hundreds of people, can also be the source of the virus.

8. If you became ill or did not feel well (not only in connection with the catarrhal symptoms, but also on other health problems, for example, at elevated pressure) – do not go to the clinic, and call a doctor.

9. If you have signs of a cold, and among your loved ones people traveled abroad in the last 2 weeks, be sure to tell your doctor. He will prescribe a analysis on novel coronavirus infection.
