Our youth are helping to get the word out within their communities and are a key force to ensure FACTS win out over MYTHS. (Swahili & English).

WHAT IS COVID-19 (Coronavirus)?

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus. The disease causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing. You can protect yourself by washing your hands frequently, avoiding touching your face, and avoiding close contact (6 feet) with people who are unwell.

HOW DO I KEEP SAFE?

You can protect yourself and help prevent spreading the virus to others if you:

  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a disposable tissue or flexed elbow when you cough or sneeze
  • Avoid close contact (6 feet) with people who are unwell or if you are out in public
  • Stay home and self-isolate from others in the household if you feel unwell
  • Listen to your local government and follow the rules
  • Avoid spreading news that is not verified by a trusted source
