In view of the current international outbreak of coronavirus disease, and in order to protect your health and that of your relatives, we at Eugin would like to send you a reassuring and informative message.
We are closely following the recommendations of local, national, and international health authorities. There is no cause for alarm.
Our health centres are continuing their activities in the usual way. In the same way as we do, and with the aim of avoiding future infections, we recommend that you follow the following prevention guidelines:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based solutions.
- Avoid direct contact with sick people or their immediate circle.
- Avoid close contact with people who are suffering from acute respiratory infections and who are coughing and sneezing.
- If you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with single-use tissues or with the inside of your elbow and wash your hands immediately.
- Avoid sharing personal items (tissues, cutlery, etc.) without cleaning them properly.
What should I do if I have recently travelled to the affected area?
- If you have recently been travelling or have had contact with people who come from risk areas*, and do not present any symptoms, you will be able to lead a normal life. In any case, you will need to watch for symptoms such as any fever exceeding 37.7ºC, general malaise, coughing or breathing difficulties over the next 14 days.
- If you have travelled and have symptoms, contact the health services by calling 112. If you are also a patient and have an appointment scheduled at our centre in the next few days, please inform us so that we can reschedule a new visit after 15 days.
