COVID 19
RESPONSE

Since January 2020, a new Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been rapidly spreading and has been classified by the WHO as a Pandemic. It was first detected in Wuhan (China) in late December 2019, and is associated with symptoms including fever, coughing and respiratory issues leading to mortality, especially in older people and those with a weakened immune system.

Humanity First has a number of initiatives in place including mobilising volunteers to help the vulnerable isolated at home and the homeless, hand washing points at bus stops, guidance posters and videos on symptoms and staying safe. We are also producing our own hand sanitising gel for small scale free distribution

COVID-19 PREVENTION

WASH YOUR HANDS
Ensure effective hand-washing several times a day or whenever contact with surfaces has increased the risk. Follow the effective hand-washing guidance

USE SOAP
Use hand-sanitiser if soap and water are not available

AVOID CROWDS
Self-isolate as far as possible, especially those over 70 years of age and those with a compromised immune system and/or chronic health condition.

AVOID CONTACT
Avoid contact if possible, including travel on public transport. Work from home if at all possible

KEEP DISTANCE
Where it is necessary to contact other people, do not shake hands and try to keep at least 2 metre distance from others.
