Advisory for CORONA VIRUS

Advisory for CORONA VIRUS

As all of you are aware that Coronavirus cases are being reported in India. So far, there are no vaccines or medicines to treat Covid-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, there is only supportive care. There are a number of steps you can take to protect yourself and those around you.

The World Health Organisation says the "most effective" protective measures are the following: cleaning your hands regularly, properly covering your mouth when you cough and social distancing.

The WHO's recommendations are :

1.      WASHING HANDS: While washing hands, use an alcohol-based rub or soap and water to kill the pathogen. Do this frequently.


2.      COVERING COUGHS: Use a tissue, or your bent elbow, to cover your cough -- this keeps virus-infected droplets away from those around you. If you use a tissue, dispose of it quickly and safely.


3.      SOCIAL DISTANCING: Stay at least 1 metre away from people who're coughing or sneezing to avoid inhaling droplets.


4.      AVOID TOUCHING YOUR FACE: If the virus has contaminated your hands after contact with another surface, it can infect you through your eyes, nose or mouth.


All the staff members & Students are hereby informed that if you do not feeling well, "even with mild symptoms such as headache and a slight runny nose", then stay home till you get better. If you have fever, cough and breathing difficulties, go to the doctor. Tell him/her, if you've come into contact with other travelers in the past days.

One last thing to keep in mind -- don't fall prey to fake news! There's plenty of misinformation out there on the coronavirus outbreak, and sharing it is dangerous. Follow trusted sources of information -- these include the World Health Organisation and India's Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
