The new coronavirus continues to spread around the world, prompting governments to step up efforts to contain the spread of the disease it causes, officially known as COVID-19.
More than 5,700 people have died globally from the disease, while more than 152,00 infections have been confirmed in dozens of countries, according to the World Health Organization, which has now declared the outbreak a pandemic.
WHY YOU SHOULD AVOID SEX WITH A SEX WORKER NOW
Having sex with a sex worker can easily transfer the virus to you because you can not easily detect who has the virus without going through a medical test.
When this virus is transferred to someone, unknown to the person, the person can move around with it, and in doing that, he/she can still spread it to other people.
The coronavirus – known as COVID-19 – spreads from person to person nearby, similar to other respiratory illnesses, such as the flu.
Droplets of bodily fluids – such as saliva or mucus – from an infected person are dispersed in the air or on surfaces by coughing or sneezing.
These droplets can come into direct contact with other people or can infect those who pick them up by touching infected surfaces and then their face.
Basic protective measures against the new coronavirus.
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.
Practice respiratory hygiene
Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
Why? Droplets spread the virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.
Let’s stay safe by abiding by the aforementioned precautions.
