The basic rules to combat Covid-19

If you are unwell with flu-like symptoms or is sick with the flu and a fever, don’t go to work. Self-isolate and get tested. Phone the hospital or doctor (or dial the hotlines 0800 100 100 or 911) and explain your exposure and why you might be infected. It is still summer in Namibia. This virus thrives in winter, it seems. So, let’s brace ourselves. The worse might still lie ahead if we don’t stop this now.

Wash your hands regularly, and wash them well, for at least 20 seconds. Use antiseptic soaps, with at least a 60 percentage alcohol content.
Try your level best not to touch your face. Our hands come in contact with so many surfaces, lift buttons, handrails, taps, doorknobs, keys, cell phones etc. which might contain harmful germs.
