To achieve the planetary goal of zero new cases and extinguishing the current COVID-19 pandemic, the following recommendations have been proposed:

  1. Do The Five:[1]


    1. Frequent handwashing
    2. When coughing, use your elbow or a tissue
    3. Do not touch your face
    4. Stay more than 3 feet apart from others
    5. If you feel sick, stay home.


  2. Limit in-person gatherings to ten people, observing the “Five” rules above [2]
  3. Lead by example – Expect 100% adherence to the above, both from yourself and from others.[3],[4]


Remember, stay informed, follow local institutional leadership and guidelines, embrace cooperative and collaborative approaches, embrace technological advances such as point-of-care testing and telemedicine, think critically to avoid medical misinformation, and most importantly do not panic.[5],[6],[7],[8] It takes a team to win this war!
