Corona Virus: Advice for travellers and backpackers

Remember this is just a virus like any other so the main advice is to wash your hands in soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds. Antibacterial gel is less effective but better than nothing if hot water and soap is unavailable.

Masks are less effective but they can’t hurt if they make you feel more comfortable.

Keep up to date on where the virus has been spread. Avoid those towns if possible.
