COVID-19 THE CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC- LET’S THINK OF OTHERS AND DO THE RIGHT THING

27/3/2020

During this COVID-19 crisis it’s important to be mindful that,( even though you may consider that you are not at risk of dying), you  can be putting others lives at risk. I was at the  Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre with a relative today and people with cancer are particularly vulnerable to the virus.

  • Please ensure you wash your hands regularly  with soap  or use hand sanitizer and make sure you wash your hands for 20 seconds. If you don’t wash your hands for 20 seconds  it is not effective.
  • Please observe social distancing guidelines at all times. Do not stand close to people in queues,  try to keep your distance, from shop assistants, if the shop says don’t go in the shop, don’t go in. If there is a limit on the number of people to be in a lift, or in a shop  please heed the notice.
  • If you have to sneeze or cough, don’t forget to cough into your elbow; do not cough into your hand.
  • Try not to touch your face, eyes , mouth,  etc.
  • Disinfect your: car keys, mobile phone, desk, steering wheel, doors, taps, light switches regularly. etc

People with compromised immune systems due to cancer and other health conditions are already stressed enough. Please be considerate of others.
