Do you know how coronavirus is spread?

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

The Ministry of Health says the best way to stop it is still washing your hands regularly.

The Ministry of Health says the best way to stop it is still washing your hands regularly.

"You might feel safer wearing a mask, and you can do that if you want to, but COVID-19 isn't airborne. It's spread by droplets, which means you're most likely to catch it by touching something with a droplet on it (and then touching your face). If you choose to wear a mask or gloves, you still need to wash your hands carefully and often."

The people who need protective equipment are those working with confirmed and suspected cases of COVID-19, the ministry said. You can find information on protective gear, including how and when to use it, on health.govt.nz/covid-19 |the Ministry of Health website|.
