The PM has confirmed another extension to the lockdown period.

The Lockdown In Spain

The Prime Minister announced details of the lockdown which mean people are only permitted to leave their homes in the following circumstances:

  • Travel for food or medical supplies
  • Travel to your workplace (if your work one of the businesses permitted to open)
  • Visiting health centres of hospitals
  • Assisting the elderly and vulnerable
  • Visiting financial institutions and banks
  • Personal emergencies

Coronavirus Mortality Rate

The mortality rate for coronavirus currently stands at around 3.4% globally (source: WHO).  In direct comparison, the flu has a mortality rate of around 1% (source: WHO).

Experts maintain that there is no need for panic, and whilst infection can be unpleasant it is very unlikely to be fatal for anyone in good health.

Washing Hands

Frequent hand washing is advised to help protect yourself from catching coronavirus.

 

Protect Yourself From Coronavirus

There are some simple steps you can take to minimise your risk of catching the coronavirus.  The CDC has issued these guidelines:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • It is not not recommended that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19 (coronavirus).
