Be socially responsible, please

  • 35 of 160 confirmed cases did not minimise social contact even with symptoms
  • 22% went to work
  • 24% doctor hopped; 8 visited 3 or more clinics
  • These actions made the spread of COVID-19 more widespread
  • What we should do:
    • see a doctor and stay home if sick, even with mild flu-like symptoms
    • don’t doctor-hop. This helps doctors to better assess your condition
    • Cooperate during contact tracing
