I know that Coronavirus can make people nervous, but I want to reassure you all to stay calm, not to panic and remember to share some kindness and look after people who need help. Don’t forget that handwashing is the most important thing you can do to protect yourself and others from coronavirus. It’s more than just a quick rinse, you need to make sure you are using soap and water and washing for at least 20 seconds..

People can carry a coronavirus without ever showing any symptoms whatsoever. During that time they are contagious and can infect others, especially people with underlying conditions and weak immune systems.
