Recommendations for the prevention of the coronavirus infection
Travellers with acute respiratory symptoms returning from China or from other countries affected by pneumonia with the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) are advised to show up immediately at the medical office of the airport and indicate their travel history to the healthcare specialist. If these symptoms occured within 14 days after returning to the country, call 112 and show up immediately at the infectious disease department/hospital or to the nearest emergency department.
Travellers planning to visit China or other countries affected by pneumonia with the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) are advised to avoid visiting wet markets or places where live or dead animals are handled and to avoid contact with those who are sick, in particular with respiratory symptoms.
They are also advised to adhere to good hand and food hygiene, and avoid contact with animals, their excretions or droppings.
In addition, due to the currently high activity of the seasonal influenza epidemic in China, travellers should receive seasonal influenza vaccination at least two weeks prior to travel to prevent severe disease, in accordance with the respective national recommendations.
