Apart from personal and workplace hygiene habits, another measure to mitigate the spread of viruses and diseases is social distancing. Social distancing refers to a strategy where you try to avoid crowded places, large gatherings of people or close contact with a group of people. In these situations, viruses can easily spread from one person to another. In general, maintaining a distance of one to two meters will slow the spread of a disease.
So there you go, keep calm and wash your hands. As long as you practice good hygiene and follow these tips, the likelihood of you contracting a virus or diseases would be reduced. Also, be sure to stay up to date with the latest news and developments as well as verify any information before sharing to avoid the spread of panic. If you need further information on other health matters, refer to the Malaysian Health Ministry’s website, Facebook or Twitter.
