With no vaccine to protect against the new coronavirus and no treatment to cure it, good hygiene is the best defence against the virus and the illness it causes - COVID-19.
Health agencies, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), agree that simple strategies, such as handwashing and covering your mouth with a tissue when sneezing can make a big difference.
Follow the steps below to help reduce your risk of catching and spreading the virus.
If you think you may have coronavirus, you can use our COVID-19 Symptom Mapper to check your symptoms and compare them with others around the world.
This should give you a better understanding of how the illness is affecting you and will help us to map the spread of the outbreak.
