It is especially requested not to go directly to the emergency room and to a medical office. In case of suspicion, a test will be carried out.
As with the seasonal flu episode, “barrier measures” (coughing in your elbow, using single-use tissues, wearing a mask, washing your hands regularly) are effective.
