VIDEO: Covid-19 - How to protect yourself


The Department of Health and the HSE have released a video on how to protect yourself from Covid-19 and how it can be contracted.

The following is information outlined in the video about Covid-19:

  • Covid-19 is a respiratory illness, transmitted from person to person through droplets from an infected person coughing or sneezing;

  • People catch the virus from contact with the droplets;

  • Close contact includes having been with 2-metres of a confirmed case for at least 15 minutes or living in the same household as a confirmed case;

  • Covid-19 can also be transmitted through touching a surface that has the virus on it and then touching your own mouth, eyes or nose;

  • The best way to prevent Covid-19 is to practise good hygiene;

  • Good hygiene includes washing your hands frequently with soap and water. This is just as effective as using sanitizer;

  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing and discard the tissue immediately into a bin and wash your hands;

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands;

  • Leave at least 1-metre (3 feet) between yourself and other people, particularly those who are coughing, sneezing and have a fever;

  • The use of a facemask is not required and there is no evidence to suggest that it protects people who are well.
