Prevent coronavirus infection by hand-wash every 30 minutes, social distancing: Delhi Govt

Coronavirus is not an airborne disease. No mask is required. Handwash and social distancing are the best ways to prevent the transmission, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tells people

NEW DELHI, Mar 13: While elaborating on the preventive steps being taken by his Government to check the transmission of coronavirus infection (covid-19), Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal told the Assembly today that that the outbreak was at the "containment stage".

He told the public not to hoard masks as masks are needed by infected people only, to help prevent onward transmission of the disease.

Covid-19 (coronavirus infection) is not an airborne disease, Kejriwal said, according to reports. "If you wear a mask, you may touch it and (in the process) there is a fear of getting infected...Only infected people should wear a mask (to prevent transmission)...On a hard surface, the virus stays for about 48 hours, whereas, on a soft tissue surface it lasts for about 7-8 days," he said.

One should wash hands every half hour, and that is good enough, he said.

The Delhi Government had yesterday invoked the Epidemic Act that empowers the Administration to take necessary actions to contain the contagion. It closed all schools, colleges and cinema halls till March 31 and advised the public to avoid crowding, favouring the established medical practice of social distancing as one of the best ways to prevent the transmission of coronavirus infection in communities.
