WHO’s standard recommendations for the general public to reduce exposure to and transmission of a range of illnesses are as follows, which include hand and respirator hygiene, and safe food practices:

1: Frequently clean hands by using alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water;

2: When coughing and sneezing cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – throw tissue away immediately and wash hands;

3:Avoid close contact with anyone who has fever and cough;

4: If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing seek medical care early and share previous travel history with your health care provider;

5: When visiting live markets in areas currently experiencing cases of novel coronavirus, avoid direct unprotected contact with live animals and surfaces in contact with animals;

6: The consumption of raw or undercooked animal products should be avoided. Raw meat, milk or animal organs should be handled with care, to avoid cross-contamination with uncooked foods, as per good food safety practices.
