World Health Organisation Coronavirus Information

Please share this World Health Organisation information and video on the #Coronavirus and remember:


Given the recent events in China and the further spread of the #Coronavirus (also known as COVID-19 or the Novel Coronavirus) into Europe, it’s time to think about how you can provide information to staff which will help reduce sickness absence as a result of common colds and influenza.

Fear of the unknown and feeling like we have a lack of control certainly contributes to further panic. But what’s important is learning what there is to know at the moment, and how this information can help us to take preventive measures, whilst also knowing what to do if further action is needed. Thankfully, there are a few things that can be done.

With this in mind, we felt it was our duty to use our expertise and resources to provide a free online awareness video about the Coronavirus.


Call 111 if you ARE showing symptoms and you have travelled to:
– Mainland China, Macau, Hong Kong, Thailand, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Republic of Korea, or Malaysia in the last 14 days.
– Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar or Italy (north of Pisa, Florence and Rimini) since 19th February.

If you have been to Wuhan or Hubei Province in China in the last 14 days OR Iran/lockdown areas in Northern Italy/special care zones in South Korea since the 19th February, even if you are NOT showing symptoms, the NHS are asking that you call 111 immediately. But there are alternate numbers that you can try for the following;

Wales: 0845 46 47 (NHS Direct)
Scotland: Call your GP first (or 111 if out of hours)
Northern Ireland: 0300 200 7885
