What’s the best way to prevent the spread of covid-19? 

  • Wash your hands often with soap (or soap substitutes) and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser. This is particularly important after taking public transport. 
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
