You need to know how to reduce the risk of catching and spreading coronavirus because:
If you catch coronavirus there is a high risk that you could give it to others
Coronavirus can cause serious illness – older people and people with health problems are most at risk, but there have been deaths of healthy adults as well
If you catch coronavirus from family members who are ill you will not be able to look after them
GPs and hospitals may be so busy that only the worst cases can be treated
With coronavirus spreading so quickly around the world we need to protect people now to give us time to develop a vaccine
It may take a bit of practice for you and your family to use the ideas on Germ Defence. But once you have learnt them they will become habits that you’ll do easily -- and they will protect you from being ill every year.
