Despite our work, it is citizens who play an essential role in ensuring success in stopping the transmission chain of infection.
Once again an appeal to citizens: do not go immediately to the hospital! The Ministry of Health has made the freephone number 08004040 available to citizens, where you can get information and advice on Covid-19. This line is mainly used for chronically ill patients, to receive information on how to track down the family doctor, the reimbursement of medicines and any other needs.
If you have symptoms of illness call the single emergency number 127!
Regardless of the measures taken, it is important to take isolation and personal hygiene measures to curb the spread of the infection. The best way to help healthcare workers and cope with this situation is for citizens to remain at home
