pathogen for the COVID-19 disease, you are required to follow the recommendatons of the WHO.

These are available in Arabic, Mandarin, English, French and Russian at the WHO website.

Reading them and instructng your teams accordingly is an important step in this unusual situaton as we must

react swifly and efficiently.

 

Basic protectve measures (WHO, recommendaton):

• Wash your hands frequently - use water or alcohol-based sanitzing lotons

• React at the first symptoms (fever, cough, difficulty breathing) - see your doctor for further advise.
