"Stop the Transmission, Crush the Pandemic" was the title of the document. "Always

others safe. The droplets fall within two meters from an infected person, the smaller aerosol
particles get carried in the air up to 10 metres.

can be reduced by ensuring that outdoor air flows in," it said.

The advisory said, “calling for frequent cleaning of high contact points such as door
handles, light switches, tables, chairs and the floor with disinfectants like bleach and phenyl.”
Wear masks:

are limited. In offices, auditoriums, shopping malls etc. use of gable fan systems and roof
ventilators are recommended. Frequent cleaning and replacement of fiters is highly
