How can you prevent the spread of Coronavirus?

Number one: Stay at home as much as possible!

Practicing good respiratory hygiene can prevent a host of different infections.
Sneeze into tissues and discard these into a closed bin. 
Handwashing is also very important in killing viruses, preferably with soap and water, or alcohol-based hand rubs or gels.
If you do have to venture outside, wear a mask in populated areas and stay 2 metres apart from others.

Because Coronavirus is a new illness, we do not know exactly how it spreads from person to person, but the virus is similar to others that are spread by cough droplets.
