hand washing

  • Hand washing remains the most effective way to control the spread of the coronovirus, according to Dr Aine McNamara Specialist in Public Health Medicine in the HSE West.

    Speaking to Midwest News today she stated that Ireland remains in the containment stage at present and the only way to stop the virus spreading is to carefully wash your hands with soap and hot water, clean surfaces in your home well, and then to be sensible – use a tissue if you are coughing or sneezing, and don’t visit anyone if you are feeling unwell yourself.

    She is also advising parents to be conscious not to unduly frighten children about the outbreak.
