Don’t risk your business or health!
In late December 2019, the People’sPeople’s Republic of China reported an outbreak of pneumonia due to unknown cause in Wuhan City, Hubei Province.
In early January 2020, the identified cause of the outbreak was a new coronavirus. While an animal source likely infected first cases in a ”wet market” in Wuhan, ongoing human-to-human transmission is now occurring.
Several coronaviruses get transmitted from human-to-human, which are not of the public health concern. However, COVID-19 is causing respiratory illness of varying severity. For COVID-19, there is no vaccine and no specific treatment for infection with the virus.
On the 30 January 2020, the World Health Organization declared that the outbreak constitutes a Public Health Emergency of International Concern.
(Currently) The UK Chief Medical Officers have raised the risk to the public from low to moderate.
Health professionals are working to contact anyone who has been in close contact with people who have coronavirus. Also, quarantine in self-isolation for vulnerable persons and the government lockdown.

The Coronaviruses are a family of known viruses which may cause illness in animals or humans. In humans, there are several coronaviruses known to cause health problems like respiratory infections like the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recent discovered Coronavirus causes coronavirus disease COVID-19.
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some people may report
• aches and pains
• nasal congestion
• runny nose
• sore throat
These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don’t feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment.
Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop severe illness.
About 2% of people with the disease have died. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
Call NHS 111 service
People can catch COVID-19 from others who have the virus. The disease can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth, which get spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales.
These droplets land on objects and surfaces around the person. Other people then catch COVID-19 by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose or mouth.
People can also catch COVID-19 if they breathe in droplets from a person with COVID-19 who coughs out or exhales droplets. It is important to stay more than 1 meter (3 feet) away from a person who is sick.
Protection measures for everyone
Stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak, available on the WHO website and through your national and local public health authority.
COVID-19 is still affecting most people in China with some epidemics in other countries. Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others.
Take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:
- Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
- Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.
- Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
- When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain the virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.
- Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
- Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.
- Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. Covering your nose and mouth with your bent elbow or disposable tissue when you cough. Then dispose of the used tissue straightaway.
- Droplets quickly spread the virus. By following good hygiene, you protect the people near you from infections such as cold, flu and COVID-19.
- Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.
- National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to direct you to the right health facility quickly. Also, protect yourself and help prevent the spread of coronaviruses and other infections.
- Stay informed on the latest developments about COVID-19. Follow the advice given by your healthcare provider, your national and local public health authority or your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
- National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on whether COVID-19 is spreading in your area. They get best placed to advise on what people in your area should be doing to protect themselves.
- Protection measures for persons who are in or have recently visited (past 14 days) areas where COVID-19 is spreading
Follow the guidance outlined above.
(Protection measures for everyone)
- Stay at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover.
- Avoiding contact with others and visits to medical facilities will allow these facilities to operate more effectively and help protect you and others from possible COVID-19 and other viruses.
- If you develop fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical advice promptly as this may be due to a respiratory infection or other serious condition. Call in advance and tell your provider of any recent travel or contact with travellers.
• Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to direct you to the right health facility quickly. Also, help to prevent the possible spread of COVID-19 and other viruses.
Hand hygiene is the first and most vital line of defence.
The new virus is spread via droplets when a person coughs or sneezes. The virus lands on surfaces and is picked up on the hands of others and spread further. People catch the virus when they touch their infected hands to their mouth, nose or eyes.
It follows that the most critical thing you can do to protect yourself is to keep your hands clean by washing them frequently with soap and water or a hand sanitising gel.
Also try to avoid touching your mouth, nose or eyes with unwashed hands – something we all do unconsciously on average about 15 times an hour.
Other tips include:
• Carry a hand sanitiser with you to make frequent cleaning of hands easy
• Always wash your hands before you eat
• Be especially careful in busy airports and other public transport systems about touching things and then touching your face
• Carry disposable tissues with you, cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze and dispose of the tissue carefully (catch it, bin it, kill it)
• Do not share snacks from packets or bowls that others are dipping their fingers into
• Avoid shaking hands or cheek kissing if you suspect viruses are circulating
• Regularly clean not just your hands but commonly used surfaces and devices you touch or handle
There is no simple cure for the new coronavirus – just as there is no cure for the common cold.
In more severe reported cases, the virus causes pneumonia, an infection that inflames the lungs and causes breathing difficulty. This is where the main danger lies.
Viral pneumonia cannot get treated with antibiotics and, for the moment at least, and there are no antivirals specific to this particular virus.
Instead, doctors focus on supporting patients lung function as best they can. They may be given oxygen or placed on a breathing machine (ventilator) in the most severe cases.
Other symptoms, such as fever and discomfort, will be treated using drugs such as aspirin and ibuprofen. Secondary infections may get treated with antibiotics.
If you are in an area where there is an outbreak of COVID-19, you need to take the risk of infection seriously. Follow the advice issued by national and local health authorities. Although for most people, COVID-19 causes only mild illness, it can make some people very ill. More rarely, the disease can be fatal. Older people and those with pre-existing medical conditions (such as high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes) appear to be more vulnerable.
Other symptoms, such as fever and discomfort, will be treated using drugs such as aspirin and ibuprofen. Secondary infections may get treated with antibiotics.
The incubation period means the time between catching the virus and beginning to have symptoms of the disease. The incubation period for COVID-19 ranges from 1-14 days, most commonly around five days. These estimates will be updated as more data become available.
It is not sure how long the virus that causes COVID-19 survives on surfaces. Still, it seems to behave like other coronaviruses. Studies suggest that coronaviruses (including preliminary information on the COVID-19 virus) may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days.
It may vary under different conditions (e.g. type of surface, temperature or humidity of the environment).
Book a decontamination service to kill the virus.
Clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, or nose.
