Following extensive coverage in the media, there has been much concern regarding the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus and its spread internationally from its source in China.
What is the Coronavirus?
According to the UK government:
“A coronavirus is a type of virus. As a group, coronaviruses are common across the world. Typical symptoms of coronavirus include fever and a cough that may progress to a severe pneumonia causing shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.”
Following the first confirmed cases in the UK, the Department of Health and Social Care has launched an information campaign on how people can protect themselves from infection and reduce the risk of spreading the virus.
The Campaign promotes important hygiene practices such as regular washing of hands and always sneezing into a tissue to stem the spread of viruses.
Extra support for hand hygiene
Where regular hand washing facilities are not available, Allied Sanisafe Hand & Surface Disinfectant Wet Wipes can help.
