Tesco COVID-19 Cases : Official Statement
Here is the official statement by Tesco on the COVID-19 exposure at their Cheras, Selayang and Setia Alam stores.
Tesco COVID-19 Exposure : What’s The Risk?
The risk of exposure from the non-customer facing employee is low, and arguably, the third-party contractor too.
However, the mall tenant may pose risk to customers, depending on whether he/she wore a face mask, and practised good hand hygiene and physical distancing.
In any case, Tesco is correct that we need to take precautionary measures to protect ourselves, like observing good hygiene, practising physical distancing and wearing face masks.
It is critical that we wear a face mask in public at all times, as it greatly reduces the risk of infection.
We should also maintain good hand hygiene by cleaning with soap and water, or a hand sanitiser.
COVID-19 is easily destroyed by soap, so even a simple cleaning operation will definitely clean the stores of any infectious particles.
COVID-19 : How To Keep Safe!
Here are a few simple steps to stay safe from COVID-19 :
- Avoid suspected cases or disease hotspots, like hospitals, if possible!
- Avoid public events and crowds
- Keep our hands clean with soap or hand sanitiser
