General

People may be sick with the virus for 1 to 14 days before developing symptoms. The most common symptoms of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. More rarely, the disease can be serious and even fatal. Older people, and people with other medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, or heart disease), may be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill. People may experience: cough fever tiredness difficulty breathing (severe cases).

Infection with COVID-19 is diagnosed by finding evidence of the virus in respiratory samples such as swabs from the back of the nose and throat or fluid from the lungs. Samples for testing can be taken directly by GPs or at a range of private pathology sites across the country that are suitable for collection of COVID-19, or at public hospitals in Juba. Refer to COVID-19 clinics for locations of States Health COVID-19/flu assessment clinics.

Some simple measures significantly reduce the risk of catching COVID-19 and of spreading it: Clean your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand rub/sanitiser. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing and sneezing or use your elbow, not your hands Avoid close contact with people unwell with cold or flu-like symptoms, and stay home if you have these symptoms. Avoid touching your face and avoid shaking hands with others. Try to maintain a distance of 1.5 metres from others as much as possible, and avoid crowded places.

South Sudan government has announced a ban on all overseas travel. For more information, check the advice.

Symptoms

The first symptoms of COVID-19 and influenza (flu) infections are often very similar. They both cause fever and similar respiratory symptoms, which can then range from mild through to severe disease, and sometimes can be fatal. Both viruses are also transmitted in the same way, by coughing or sneezing, or by contact with hands, surfaces or objects contaminated with the virus. As a result, the same public health measures, such as hand hygiene (hand washing), good respiratory etiquette (coughing into your elbow or into a tissue and immediately disposing of the tissue) and good household cleaning are important actions to prevent both infections.

If you have been overseas in the last 14 days, you should: self isolate yourself from others for 14 days from the day you returned or arrived from overseas and monitor yourself for symptoms.

Yes, South Sudan Minister for Health and Medical Research has issued public health orders to protect the community and limit the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

The infection period for the virus will vary from person to person. Mild symptoms in an otherwise healthy individual may resolve over just a few days.
