A UK-wide public information campaign has been launched to advise the public on how to slow the spread of coronavirus and reduce the impact on NHS services.
The government-funded campaign will include public health advice on how people can protect themselves from infection.
Similar to the ‘Catch it, Bin it, Kill it’ campaign used for flu and norovirus, it will promote important hygiene practices, such as regularly washing hands and always sneezing into a tissue, to stem the spread of viruses.
HM Government and NHS-branded information will appear in radio and print media, as well as social media.
The campaign will advise the public to:
always carry tissues and use them to catch coughs and sneezes, and bin the tissue
wash hands with soap and water, or use sanitiser gel, to kill germs
People who have travelled back from the Hubei province in China within the last 14 days are being asked to:
stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with the flu
