Why must we keep apart from one another?
- COVID-19 mainly spreads when we breathe in the small droplets produced when someone with COVID-19 breathes, coughs, sneezes, sings, talks or shouts.
- These droplets also land on surfaces and objects. Sometimes we can catch COVID-19 if we touch those surfaces and then touch our eyes, nose or mouth.
Keep apart from others to allow less chance for coronavirus to spread.
- This will help protect those at risk of severe COVID-19 – those over 55 years or people with diabetes, HIV, TB, kidney disease, hypertension, chronic lung disease or cancer.
- This will also ensure that less stress is placed on our clinics and hospitals so that those who need healthcare can still get it.
