How to protect yourself from Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) with Mask


Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.

Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.

Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.

How to put on, use, take off and dispose of a mask

  • 1. Before putting on a mask, clean hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
  • 2. Cover mouth and nose with mask and make sure there are no gaps between your face and the mask.
  • 3. Avoid touching the mask while using it; if you do, clean your hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
  • 4. Replace the mask with a new one as soon as it is damp and do not re-use single-use masks.
  • 5. To remove the mask: remove it from behind (do not touch the front of mask); discard immediately in a closed bin; clean hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
