Your Three Minute Guide To Protecting Yourself From The SWINE FLU
Swine Flu - 3 Minute Guide To Protecting Yourself
Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze. Discard tissue promptly. Keep a mask on-hand in case someone sneezes or coughs nearby.
Be sure to wash your hands, for up to 20 seconds, with soap and water after you’ve coughed or sneezed.
Wash your hands thoroughly before eating and refrain from eating with your bare hands. More than 80% of all infections are spread this way.
Hand-sanitizers work just as well if you’re unable to locate soap and water. Check that they have at least 60% of alcohol content.
Refrain from touching your mouth, nose and eyes and avoid kissing on the cheeks. Germs are spread more rapidly this way than any other method of transmission.
Avoid contact with sick people. Isolation and evasion are very effective measures against infections.
Symptoms of swine flu are similar to those caused by other influenza viruses. These include fever and chills, coughing, sore throat, and fatigue.
Stay alert and look out for any unusual symptoms. When in doubt, go for professional help.
Be responsible. If you are sick, stay home from work or school. Limit your contact with others, so as to lower the chances of infecting others.
Lastly, eat well and have plenty of good rest . You should also exercise regularly and increase your vitamin C intake.
Together we can stop the spread of the swine flu if everyone does their part. Forward this now to everyone you know!
