Now available! New guidelines 📙 to help countries maintain essential health services & safeguard health care workers 👨⚕️⚕️👩⚕️ during #COVID19 outbreak. 👉
Maintaining Essential Health Services and Systems
FACT: #COVID19 is NOT airborne.
The #coronavirus is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes or speaks.
To protect yourself:
-keep 1m distance from others
-disinfect surfaces frequently
-wash/rub your 👐
-avoid touching your 👀👃👄
We can all do something to combat the spread of #COVID19 - starting by washing our hands regularly and thoroughly for at least 20 seconds.
Thank you @USAmbUN Kelly Craft for inviting me to take the @WHO #SafeHands challenge. I now nominate @aminajmohammed & @UNYouthEnvoy.
Our teams around the world are urgently scaling up work to install handwashing facilities in areas where people need them most in the face of #COVID19.
The time to act is now. Will you support our campaign? 👇
