Coronavirus (COVID-19) Situation <br />at 19/03/2020


209,839 - confirmed cases
8,778 - deaths
168 - countries, areas or territories with cases

On 20 of
March the Ministry of Health has confirmed 11 new cases of coronavirus in New Zealand, taking the country"s total to 39.
On Saturday, the Prime Minister announced travel restrictions forcing anyone
entering New Zealand from outside of the Pacific Islands to self-isolate for 14 days. These were extended on Thursday with a full border closure to anyone but New Zealand citizens, residents or their close
family.

Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield reminded people that indoor mass gatherings of more than 100 people can no longer go ahead, but all schools, universities and public
transport can remain open. The limit is 500 for outdoor gatherings. The Director-General stressed those limits to university students.

An economic package was revealed by the New Zealand
Government on Tuesday to assist businesses and workers adversely affected by the disruption to trade and travel routes. It"s also launched a public health campaign to attempt to spread information about
the virus and how people can individually combat it.

What we know about coronavirus.

Coronavirus is primarily spread through droplets in the air after someone sneezes or coughs.
However, it can also be contracted by touching surfaces where the illness is present, according to the World Health Organization. The length of time the virus stays alive on surfaces is unknown at this stage,
but some viruses can remain active for days.

The WHO was first informed of cases of the virus in Wuhan on December 31. It was identified as a coronavirus on January 7 and can spread through
human-to-human transmission.
"Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause
pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death," the WHO says.
"Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth
and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing."

There is
currently no vaccine for the sickness.

Ways to protect from the sickness.

• avoid touching the mouth, nose and eyes with unwashed hands
• washing your hands before
eating
• carrying a hand sanitiser at all times
• being particularly mindful of touching your face after using public transport or going to the airport
• carry tissues at all times to
cover the mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing (then dispose of it)
• not eating shared or communal food
• avoiding shaking hands, kissing cheeks
• regularly cleaning and
sanitise commonly used surfaces and items, such as phones and keys
• avoiding close contact with people suffering from or showing symptoms of acute respiratory infection
• seeking
medical attention if you feel unwell.
