Coronavirus prevention: what works to prevent the spread of COVID-19

Hygiene is essential, as with the common flu

Doctors say that surgical masks, made of cotton, will not help much to avoid getting a virus. Instead, use them if you are already sick.
N95 masks, respirator masks block disease particles and are in great demand from both the public and the government.
Some recommendations to avoid contagion are:

Masks for the sick and caregivers

For the general population they are not necessary. Masks are primarily a tool so that people who are sick do not transmit the virus to the people around them through their coughs. They can also help people who care for the sick, although their effectiveness in these cases is lower.

Hygiene is essential, as with the common flu

Wash your hands well, often and avoid touching your mouth, nose or eyes are measures that help you catch less infections like the flu and also work with the coronavirus. As an optimal measure it is recommended to rub your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
