DEFINITION

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus. Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness. (Quoted from WHO)

The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is to be well informed about the COVID-19 virus, the disease it causes and how it spreads. We should practice self hygiene at all times. In addition, with proper cleaning & disinfection can help to control the spread of COVID-19.

CORONAVIRUS PREVENTION TIPS

DIFFERENT METHODS OF KEEPING SURFACES CLEAN

DIFFERENT METHODS OF KEEPING SURFACES CLEAN

1. Cleaning – It is the first step in a complete decontamination process. This ensures easier and more effective removal of micro-organisms with more intensive methods later.

2. Disinfection – A process that eliminates many or all pathogenic microorganisms.It actually breaks down the components of virus (E.g. membrane, protein structures etc), rendering it inactivated.

HOW DO WE DO:

Assessment of work site layout

Identification key areas to clean

Ensuring proper donning & doffing of PPE

Determine cleaning procedure, flow and sequence
