How can one prevent COVID-19 from spreading? Being well informed about the COVID-19 virus, the disease it causes and how it spreads is the best way to prevent and slow down transmission. Protect yourself and others from infection by washing your hands or frequently using a rub based on alcohol, and not touching your face. When an infected person coughs or sneezes, the COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose, so it is important that you also practice respiratory etiquette (for example, by coughing into a flexed elbow).

Can COVID-19 propagate through food? It's highly unlikely people will be able to contract COVID-19 from food or food packaging. COVID-19 is a respiratory disease and the primary route of transmission is through person-to - person contact and direct contact with respiratory droplets produced when an infected person is coughing or sneezing. To date, there is no evidence of viruses which cause respiratory diseases to be transmitted via food or food packaging. Coronaviruses can't multiply in food; they need to multiply by an animal or human host. [Original source: who.int]
