🙅🏻‍♀️ DO NOT shake hands or hug to greet each other
🙅‍♂️ Drastic social distancing
🤲 Wash your hands regularly
🗣 Cough into your elbow
🤧 Use a disposable tissue
😷 Wear a disposable mask if you are sick

☎️ your generalist, if you experience any symptoms: cough, fever, conjunctivitis, severe fatigue, aches and pains

☎️ 15 for emergencies and when symptoms worsen with difficulty in breathing

☎️ 0 800 130 000 for non-medical questions, (7/7, 24/24)
