Updates on what should be done to handle 2019-nCoV:

[Sent by – 4 Feb]

For nCoV preparedness

If there’s community spread in more Chinese cities and other countries
– Health screenings at all checkpoints
– Place high-risk travellers into quarantine
– Restrict recent travellers from China

If there’s local community spread
– Healthcare providers on alert to identify and deal with cases
– Immediate contact-tracing
– Quarantine orders and Leave of Absence in place

If the virus mutates and spreads more widely
– More isolation beds
– Faster testing to confirm suspect cases
– Consider further measures to reduce human-to-human interactions

Exercise personal responsibility
– Have good personal hygiene. Wash your hands regularly and properly using soap and water. Wear a mask if you are ill and promptly see a doctor
– Observe Leave of Absence if you recently travelled to China
Don’t spread fake news that can cause panic and fear
