Our professionals are being trained, hospitals are prepared and the contingency plan is synchronized to fight the virus and protect the population ”. PREVENTION – The COE (Emergency Operations Center) is alert for prevention information, which at the moment is the same as indicated for other respiratory syndromes, such as Influenza. The main preventive measures are: avoid close contact with people with acute respiratory infections; washing your hands frequently, especially after direct contact with sick people and before eating; use disposable tissue for nasal hygiene; cover nose and mouth when sneezing and coughing; do not share personal items such as cutlery, plates, glasses or bottles. According to Luiz Ernesto Pujol, secretary general of the Regional Medical Council of Paraná, in addition to hygiene care and respiratory etiquette, one of the ways to prevent the spread of the virus is information. “No governmental action will be enough if the information that reaches the population is not correct, the solution to fight the disease is in the participation of each one,” he said.
