Stop the Spread of COVID-19: A Simple Guide from VIP Dental Clinic Miranda

by | May 8, 2020 | COVID-19

Testing for coronavirus is now widely available across Australia.

If you are experiencing cold or flu symptoms, arrange a test by calling your doctor or contact the Coronavirus Health Information Hotline on 1800 020 080.

The federal government’s coronavirus tracing app COVIDSafe is available for download from your phone’s app store.

With the COVID-19 outbreak, we at VIP Dental Clinic Miranda encourage everyone to practise good hygiene to prevent the spread of the virus.

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus. We recommend everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of any respiratory diseases.

Here’s what you can do:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water. Wash them for at least 20 seconds. If there’s no soap and water, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Viruses that cause colds can enter your body this way and make you sick
  • Stay away from people who are sick. Sick people can spread viruses through close contact with others.

If you have serious symptoms such as difficulty breathing or experiencing cold or flu symptoms, arrange a test by calling your doctor or contact the Coronavirus Health Information Hotline on 1800 020 080.

Symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Coughing
  • Sore throat
  • Fatigue, and
  • Shortness of breath (severe cases)

If you have the abovementioned symptoms, call 000 for urgent medical help.

We can all help to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Australia. Watch this video for more information on protecting yourself from the virus.
