Coronavirus is spread in cough or sneeze droplets.

Ways in which you can get the virus are as follows:

  • come into close contact with someone who has the virus and coughs or sneezes
  • touch surfaces that someone who has the virus has coughed or sneezed on

As Covid-19 is a new illness, we do not know how easily the virus spreads from person to person. Spread is most likely from those who have symptoms.

Simple household disinfectants can kill the virus on surfaces. Ensure you clean the surface and then use a disinfectant.
