Precautionary Measures against pneumonia cases detected in Wuhan, Hubei Province

 

In view of the spread of pneumonia cases detected in Wuhan, Hubei Province, please be reminded to take precautionary measures in prevention of pneumonia cases. If needed, you can request for a mask at our CFM office.

 

CFM has already strengthened our cleaning procedures in maintaining good hygiene standard in the campus. Below are some preventive measures and advices from the Centre of Health Protection to prevent spread of pneumonia and respiratory tract infection:

 

  1. Perform hand hygiene frequently, especially before touching the mouth, nose or eyes; after touching public installations such as handrails or door knobs; or when hands are contaminated by respiratory secretion after coughing or sneezing;
  2. Wash hands with liquid soap and water, and rub for at least 20 seconds. Then rinse with water and dry with a disposable paper towel or hand dryer. If hand washing facilities are not available, or when hands are not visibly soiled, hand hygiene with 70 to 80 per cent alcohol-based hand-rub is an effective alternative;
  3. Cover your mouth and nose with tissue paper when sneezing or coughing. Dispose of soiled tissues into a lidded rubbish bin, then wash hands thoroughly; and
  4. When having respiratory symptoms, wear a surgical mask, refrain from work or attending class at school, avoid going to crowded places and seek medical advice promptly.

Thank you for your attention.
