Pevention from swine flu
hiniIt can spread through coughing
so always cover your face while doing so. And make sure people around you in office or home also follow this.Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth too often
Maintain a high level of personal hygiene. Always wash your hands before or after eating and particularly after returning from a public place.
Sometimes virus can spread through droplets that have remained on surfaces of things like laptops, phones so avoid using someone else’s items.
Avoid public places, unhygienic conditions, etc.
If your city/area is swine-flu endemic, always wear a standard swine flu mask in public places (the H-95 mask which is worn by nurses and doctors while collecting samples from swine flu victims). Normal surgical masks which sell like hot cakes during swine flu season might not give enough protection.
If you feel sick and look like you are developing a cold or fever
, stay at home and take enough rest. Rest has also been shown to increase ‘interferons’ which help our immunity to fight the virus better. Keeping away from others also prevents spread of the infection.
