Does it infect kids as often as adults? Seems that it affects elderly the most?
What is your opinion of the wuhan virus as compared to SARS and MEARS?
I am 14 weeks pregnant. N now down with flu.. is it safe to consume flu medication?
Is it safe for kids to go to playground? What precautions should we take if we are not wearing a mask and traveling by mrt ?
There is currently no evidence of community spread of the new coronavirus in Singapore. It is safe to bring your children to play at the playground. I would advise parents to stay vigilant and avoid close contact with people who are unwell or showing symptoms of illnes.
Is practicing basic hygiene habits enough to prevent the Wuhan virus from spreading?
We should do our part and be socially responsible. For those of you who are unwell, - Wear a mask if you have respiratory symptoms such as a cough or runny nose; - Cover your mouth with a tissue paper when coughing or sneezing, and dispose the soiled tissue paper in the rubbish bin immediately
