CORONAVIRUS: A reminder of Hygiene Rules by the Lifesaving Society
Montreal, March 12, 2020 – Although the international public health has called the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak pandemic, Quebec and the rest of Canada still count few confirmed cases for the moment and the risk of contagion is relatively low. Current epidemiological evidence indicates that person-to-person transmission of COVID-19 seems to be done mostly through contact with respiratory droplets of an infected person. Since infected particles can be found in feces as well, a fecal-oral transmission of coronavirus is also possible1.
