Rospotrebnadzor published advice on protection against a new strain of coronavirus. The department recommends first of all to maintain clean hands and surfaces.

The department reminded that coronaviruses mainly affect animals, but in some cases they can be transmitted to humans. Usually, the diseases caused by such viruses occur in a mild form, but there are also serious ones like the Middle East respiratory syndrome and severe acute respiratory syndrome. The new strain causes a feeling of fatigue, fever, cough, makes breathing difficult - the symptoms often mimic a common cold, may be like the flu.

People become infected with the virus when they touch their mouth, nose, or eyes with contaminated hands, so they should often wash their hands with soap and water or use a disinfectant. Care should be taken not to touch your mouth, nose or eyes with unwashed hands. In crowded places, you should try to minimize the touch on people and objects.

Also, Rospotrebnadzor experts recommend not eating from common packages or utensils, avoiding handshakes and kisses on the cheek, regularly cleaning the keyboard, office equipment panels, smartphone screen, remotes and door handles. At home, you need to use an individual towel, a toothbrush and other personal hygiene items, as well as ventilate the room more often.

The department noted that viral pneumonia cannot be treated with antibiotics. People of all ages are at risk, but children, people over 65, and people with weakened immune systems are most at risk.

World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adan Gebreyesus said the risk of spreading the world of coronavirus remains high. The organization estimates that in the next three months it will need $ 61,5 million to combat the spread of the outbreak of the new coronavirus.
