At the moment, there is a lot of mis-information circulating online about Coronavirus, how it emerged, how it is transmitted, etc. One should only look up information from reputable websites, such as:
- The Maltese Deputy Prime Minister’s/Ministry for Health Website: https://deputyprimeminister.gov.mt/en/Pages/health.aspx
- The European Centre for Disease Control: https://www.ecdc.europa.eu/sites/default/files/documents/nove-coronavirus-infection-prevention-control-patients-healthcare-settings.pdf
- The World Health Organisation Coronavirus Pages: https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019
Mis-information can lead to delayed treatment, unsafe practices and unwarranted fear/panic amongst the population.
Only follow reputable sources of information, do not rely on heresy or speculation.
The ‘Coronavirus Updates’ Section on our website (https://stnicholascollegemalta.net/category/coronavirus-outbreak/) has been specifically created to provide you with the latest information from the Maltese Ministries for Education and Health, the Department of Information and the World Health Organisation. We will also be uploading informative videos from reputable sources.
This is the first in a series of videos from the World Health Organisation: What can people do to protect themselves and others from getting the new coronavirus?
