How do I avoid catching coronavirus?

According to the NHS’ website, there are things you can do to help stop coronavirus spreading.

Regular hand-washing is the single most important action individuals can take in the fight against Covid-19.

Hand washing should be for 20 seconds, using soap and water or hand sanitiser.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands, and avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

Most people can continue to go to work, school and other public places.

You only need to stay away from public places (self-isolate) if advised to by the 111 online coronavirus service or a medical professional.

Nicola Sturgeon said: "If people follow the advice, if we ensure confirmed cases are isolated, that contacts are traced and given appropriate advice, and if the public follow the advice on hand (washing) and other personal hygiene, then we can continue to have a degree of success in stopping the spread from individual to individual, and it is important that we do that for as long as possible."The NHS advises carrying tissues with you and using them to catch your cough or sneeze, before binning the tissue and washing your hands or using sanitiser gel.
