Covid-19

Update

Be informed, keep safe & stay well

The world is now facing one of the biggest immediate threats in history with the spread of the novel corona virus (Covid-19). 

It is important to stay informed, and to get the correct facts. There are many rumours and misinformation which are causing additional distress and unnecessary worry.

More dangerously, some of this misinformation is causing people to believe in fake ways to deal with the virus (including blowing a hairdryer up one’s nostril). 

Please follow only the advisory issued by your local health authority.
