Coronavirus can make people very sick. You might make another person sick too.
Coronavirus is very bad. Old people and other people who are already sick, they should be very careful to avoid becoming sick.
Let’s work together so that people in our communities stay healthy, not sick.
When you cough, cover your mouth with the inside of your elbow. Do not cough into your hand.
When you cough or sneeze or go to the toilet, after that wash your hands with soap, slowly and carefully, for 20 seconds. Wash your hands like that too before cooking food.
When you see people who are sick or coughing or sneezing—stay away from them.
When lots of people are sitting or standing in a group—stay away from them.
Because of coronavirus, stay at home—inside your house. Stay away from other people.
If you feel sick, maybe a fever, or coughing, maybe a sore throat, or maybe you are worried about another person who is sick—call you doctor or clinic right away.
Let’s all keep each other healthy and strong.
Look on the internet at australia DOT gov DOT au. Or maybe go to the clinic to learn more about this.
