Ways to protect yourself and others

Should I wear a medical mask?

Medical masks help to limit the spread of coronavirus and other diseases. However, its use alone is not enough to reduce infection. Regular hand washing and not associating with a potentially infected person is the best way to reduce the risk of contracting this virus.

Are children at risk?

People of any age can be infected with this virus. One thing to note, however, is that no casualties have been reported so far in children infected with the corona virus. The virus can be fatal, especially in older people who are already ill.

However, the virus has an indirect effect on poor urban children. These effects include school closures, which have recently been observed in Mongolia.
