Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered strain of the coronavirus and can cause illnesses ranging in severity from the common cold to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).

The infected individual with the COVID-19 virus will experience high body temperature (38 and above), develop cough and have mild to moderate respiratory illness. The coronavirus affects people of all ages but older people and those with pre-existing medical conditions like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and asthma appear to be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill from the virus.

To do your part to prevent and slow down transmission of the virus, be well informed about the COVID-19 virus, how it spreads and ways you can protect yourself and others. Safeguard yourself and others by maintaining good personal hygiene, including washing your hands frequently with soap or using an alcohol-based sanitiser and avoid touching your face.

We highly encourage everyone (students and staffs) to practice the following social distancing techniques:

1. Maintain at least 1-meter distance between yourself and others in public places, especially from those who are coughing, sneezing and have a fever.
2. Avoid close contact, including handshakes.
3. Wear face mask if you must leave the house
