Questions and answers about coronavirus disease (COVID-19)
Is it possible to get COVID-19 from contact with the feces of a person with the disease?
The risk of contracting COVID-19 from contact with the feces of an infected person appears to be low.
Although initial research suggests that the virus may be present in some cases in feces, spread via this route is not one of the characteristic features of the outbreak.
WHO is reviewing ongoing research into the ways in which COVID-19 is spread and will continue to report on the new results.
However, it is a risk and therefore is one more reason to wash your hands frequently, after using the bathroom and before eating.
What can I do to protect myself and prevent the spread of the disease?
Protective measures for all people
Keep up to date with the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak, which can be accessed on the WHO website and through relevant public health authorities at the national and local levels.
Cases have been reported in many countries around the world, and outbreaks have occurred in several of them.
The Chinese authorities and those of other countries have managed to slow down or stop the outbreak progress, but the situation is unpredictable and it is necessary to regularly check the latest news.
There are several precautions that can be taken to reduce the chance of getting or spreading COVID-19:
Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently using an alcohol-based disinfectant or soap and water.
Washing your hands with soap and water or using an alcohol-based disinfectant kills viruses that may be on your hands.
Keep a minimum distance of 1 meter (3 feet) between you and anyone who coughs or sneezes.
When someone coughs or sneezes, droplets of fluid that may contain the virus are released from the nose or mouth.
If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets and with them the COVID-19 virus, if the coughing person has the disease.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses.
Once contaminated, the hands can transfer the virus to the eyes, nose, or mouth.
From there, the virus can enter your body and cause illness.
Both you and those around you should make sure you maintain good airway hygiene.
That means covering your mouth and nose with your elbow bent or with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
The used handkerchief should be discarded immediately.
Viruses spread through droplets.
By maintaining good respiratory hygiene, you are protecting people around you from viruses like the cold, flu, and COVID-19.
Stay home if you are not feeling well.
If you have a fever, cough, and shortness of breath, seek medical attention and call ahead.
Follow the instructions of the local health authorities.
National and local authorities will have the most up-to-date information on the situation in their area.
Calling ahead will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health center.
This will also protect you and help prevent the spread of viruses and other infections.
Stay informed about the latest news regarding COVID-19.
Follow the advice of your healthcare provider, relevant national and local health authorities, or your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
National and local authorities will have the most up-to-date information on whether COVID-19 is spreading in your area.
They are the most suitable interlocutors to give advice on what people in your area should do to protect themselves.
Check the latest news on the most dangerous areas (that is, the cities and places where the disease is spreading most widely).
If possible, avoid moving to these areas, especially if you are elderly or have diabetes, heart or lung disease.
These precautions should be taken in these areas because the probability of contracting COVID-19 is higher.
