Stay at home, save lives

The health authorities advice everyone who does not have a compelling reason to travel to stay at home in the light of evidence that social distancing is the best way to slow down the spread of the New Coronavirus. Countries that adopted strict “stay-at-home” measures have managed to bring down the infected persons count drastically. 

Do not go out unnecessarily out of your house, not even to visit your friends and relatives just down the street when the curfew is relaxed.  At the moment, health authorities do not recommend wearing a mask if you are healthy. If you suspect that you had come into contact with a Coronavirus patient, regardless of whether you have any symptoms, call the nearest police station. Such “contact tracing” can help save lives, including your own and those of your loved ones. If you feel sick and/or suspect you are having COVID-19, call the 1990 Suwaseriya Ambulance Service or the nearest Police station – do not try to go a hospital on your own.

When you go out when the curfew is relaxed, try to keep a distance of at least one metre from the next person, even if he or she is a family member.  Do not be outside for a longer duration than strictly necessary. And wash your hands often with soap/handwash liquid and water each time for at least 20 seconds. Follow all the guidelines issued by the Government and Municipal health authorities and law enforcement agencies at all times.
