Questions to WHO

It is best to greet with a wave of the hand, a bow of the head, or a bow.
Q: How should I greet people to avoid getting the new coronavirus?
A: To prevent COVID-19, it is safest to avoid physical contact when greeting each other.
Some safe forms of greeting are a hand gesture, a nod, or a bow.
Q: Is wearing rubber gloves in public an effective way to prevent infection with the new coronavirus?
