Simple Steps to Protect Against Coronavirus

With the recent Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Outbreak, the government has taken strong counter measures in preventing the spreading of the virus. However, on individual level – everyone still needs to protect themselves to prevent the infectious disease. This virus is a worldwide concern and it is important that we take sensible precautions to minimise the risk to ourselves, our family, customers and colleagues. Protection is key to a better health so MR.DIY is giving away 1 pcs face mask FREE for each customer (with no minimum purchase). We are giving away 3.5 million pcs of face mask nationwide! It will take some time to accommodate all of our stores nationwide, more stocks are coming in soon so we appreciate your patience.

The World Health Organization (WHO) and Ministry of Health Malaysia (Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia) recommends the following steps to reduce your risk of coronavirus infection:

 

 

  1. Frequently clean hands by using alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water;
  2. When coughing and sneezing cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – throw tissue away immediately and wash hands;
  3. Avoid close contact with anyone who has fever and cough;
  4. If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing seek medical care early and share previous travel history with your health care provider;
  5. When visiting live markets in areas currently experiencing cases of novel coronavirus, avoid direct unprotected contact with live animals and surfaces in contact with animals;
  6. The consumption of raw or undercooked animal products should be avoided. Raw meat, milk or animal organs should be handled with care, to avoid cross-contamination with uncooked foods, as per good food safety practices.

 

Let’s stay healthy so that we can keep the people around us healthy as well.
