Be safe from Coronavirus

How Coronavirus Spreads?

Coronaviruses cause infections of the nose, throat and lungs. They are most commonly spread from an infected person through:

  • 1. Respiratory droplets generated when you cough or sneeze.
  • 2. Close, prolonged personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands.
  • 3.Touching something with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose or eyes before washing your hands.
  • 4. Current evidence suggests person-to-person spread is efficient when there is close contact.

How To Prevent Coronavirus?

  • Being prepared in case you or a family member becomes ill.
  • Following the latest travel advice from federal and provincial public health leaders.
  • Avoiding all non-essential travel, including accessories and utilities shopping for a while.
  • Self-isolating, and monitoring for symptoms (cough, fever or difficulty breathing) for 14 days if you have travelled outside of Nepal.
  • Reducing contact with others by following the guidance for self-monitoring, self-isolating, or isolating.
  • Practising social distancing and proper hygiene.
  • Wearing masks, if necessary.

Social distancing

Guidelines

Together, we can slow the spread of COVID-19 by making a conscious effort to keep a physical distance between each other. Social distancing is proven to be one of the most effective ways to reduce the spread of illness during an outbreak.

  • 1.Avoiding crowded places and non-essential gatherings.
  • 2. Avoiding common greetings, such as handshakes and hugging.Greeting "Namastey!" is fine.
  • 3.Limiting contact with people at higher risk like older adults and those in poor health.
  • 4. Keeping a distance of at least 2 arms-length (approximately 2 metres) from others.
  • 5.Proper hygiene can help reduce the risk of infection or spreading the infection to others.
  • 6. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the washroom and when preparing food.
  • 7. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • 8.Cough or sneeze into a tissue or the bend of your arm, not your hand.
  • 9. Dispose of any tissues you have used as soon as possible in a lined waste basket and wash your hands afterwards.
  • 10.Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • 11.Sanitize the high-touch surfaces frequently. For example: Toys ,Mobile ,Bed Table , Door Knob, etc.
  • 12. If you are a healthy individual, the use of a mask is not recommended for preventing the spread of COVID-19-WHO Announcement
  • 13.Wearing a mask when you are not ill may give a false sense of security. There is a potential risk of infection with improper mask use and disposal. They also need to be changed frequently.
  • 14. However, your health care provider may recommend you wear a mask if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 while you are seeking or waiting for care. In this instance, masks are an appropriate part of infection prevention and control measures. The mask acts as a barrier and helps stop the tiny droplets from spreading you when you cough or sneeze.

Risk of getting Coronavirus

The risk for COVID-19 may be increased for certain settings such as:

Crowd Area

Crowded areas (such as public transport and shopping centres) gatherings (spiritual and cultural settings, theatres, sports arenas, festivals and conferences) There is an increased risk of more severe outcomes for Nepal and Nepalese People.

Aged 65 and over

With compromised immune systems, with underlying medical conditions, People that fall into these categories should reconsider attending gatherings. This includes large gatherings and even smaller events in crowded or enclosed settings. If you have symptoms (cough, fever or difficulty breathing), do not attend a mass gathering, event or places where people gather. You could put someone whose health is vulnerable at risk.

Travellers

The risk of getting COVID-19 may be increased for travellers. Nepalese are advised to avoid all non-essential travel. If you must travel, check the latest travel advice before you leave.

Pregnant women

Throughout pregnancy, women experience changes in their bodies that may increase the risk of some illnesses, including viral respiratory infections, such as the flu. At this time, there is insufficient evidence to suggest that pregnant women are at a greater risk for more serious outcomes related to COVID-19. It is always important for pregnant women to protect themselves from illnesses and take the appropriate steps to avoid and prevent infection. Proper hygiene can help reduce the risk of getting an infection or spreading infection to others.
If you are pregnant and concerned about COVID-19, speak to your health care provider.

Products shipped from outside of Nepal

Coronaviruses generally do not survive on surfaces after being contaminated. The risk of spread from products shipped over a period of days or weeks at room temperature is very low.
There is no known risk of coronaviruses entering Nepal on parcels or packages.

Food

There is currently no evidence to suggest that food is a likely source or route of transmission of the virus. Scientists and food safety authorities across the world are closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19.
If we become aware of a potential food safety risk, appropriate actions will be taken to ensure the safety of Nepal's food supply.

Animals in Nepal

There is currently no evidence to suggest that this virus is circulating in animals in Nepal. It is possible that some types of animals can be infected with COVID-19 but there is no evidence that pets or other animals can spread the virus. There are still many unknowns about COVID-19 and this is an area that remains to be studied and understood. Until we know more, if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and have a pet or other animal:

  • -Avoid close contact with them
  • -Do not snuggle or kiss them, or let them lick you, sit on your lap, or sleep in your bed
  • -Practice good cough etiquette
  • -Avoid coughing and sneezing on your animals
  • -Have another member of your household care for your animals if this is not possible, always wash your hands before touching or feeding them
  • -limit your animal's contact with other people and animals this may mean keeping them indoors
*

To date, there have not been any reports of livestock being infected by COVID-19 anywhere. However, livestock producers should follow normal biosecurity measures as always. This includes limiting visitors or workers who may have travelled to, or been in contact with, someone from an affected area.

Animals from other countries

Although the current spread and growth of the COVID-19 outbreak is primarily associated with spread from person to person, experts agree that the virus likely originated from bats and may have passed through an intermediary animal source (currently unknown) in China before being transmitted to humans. Although travel is not recommended, if you must travel, you should avoid contact with animals, including wild meat and wet (live animal) markets. All animals entering Nepal must meet import requirements set out by the Nepalese Food Inspection Agency. There are currently no specific requirements in place in Nepal restricting animal importation related to the COVID-19 outbreak. This is because as there is no evidence that pets or other domestic animals can spread the virus.
However, importers, rescue organizations and adoptive families should limit or postpone importing animals from outside of Nepal. If animals must be imported to Nepal then they should be closely monitored for signs of illness You should contact a veterinarian if they become sick.

False and misleading claims

We have not recieved information that any product to prevent, treat or cure COVID-19. Selling unauthorized health products or making false or misleading claims to prevent, treat or cure COVID-19 is illegal in Nepal. Nepal Govt takes this matter very seriously and they are taking action to stop this activity.
If you find any thing suspicious around your place, call the local security forces.
