Corona Virus Resources: Seagull and Videotel have joined forces to provide this free-of-charge awareness video.
In the wake of the pandemic COVID-19, Seagull Maritime and Videotel have launched a new programme called: “Coronavirus- How to Beat it.”
Available free to the maritime industry, the programme outlines the common symptoms that seafarers need to be aware of and details the key precautions that individuals onboard can take to minimise the spread of this highly contagious virus.
Frequent hand washing is one of the ways to reduce infection and the programme demonstrates the correct way to thoroughly wash hands using liquid soap and warm water.
It also gives advice to crew on the procedures to follow onboard if they think they have become infected, to reduce the likelihood of spreading the infection.
