The “flu season" is coming, and we will tell you what to do to protect yourself from acute viral infection at work and at home.
Graft. Vaccination reduces the risk of getting sick by 70-90%. If this does happen, then the flu is mild and does not cause complications. To develop immunity against the virus, it is not too late to get vaccinated.
Airing the room. Air dried by heating is a suitable medium for the spread and propagation of viruses that prefer low humidity from 20 to 35%. Ventilate the room more often to get rid of the air you breathe.
Hand hygiene. On the way to work, a person touches the door handles and handrails of public transport, and then takes a book or phone out of his bag, straightens his hair, transferring viruses that have settled on public objects onto them. Wash your hands more often and use disinfectant gels in small bottles that fit in your pocket or bag.
Antiseptic wipes. At the beginning of the working day, wipe the desk, phone, computer keyboard, mouse and other office items with alcohol wipes. Such disinfection will help destroy the remnants of viruses and moisturize the space.
Food. Pizza and sweets increase the risk of weakening the immune system. For breakfast, drink freshly squeezed juice, and in the office – tea with lemon and dark chocolate. Eat apples, oranges, kiwi, persimmons, nuts, natural yogurt, fish and liver dishes, boiled or stewed broccoli. In the evening, add garlic and onions to the dishes.
Houseplants. Bring geraniums to the office. Its leaves contain volatile volatile, which are able to destroy bacteria. Rub the leaves in your hands periodically and inhale their smell.
Riding at rush hour. The easiest precaution in public transport is to not get into rush hour. If you cannot avoid it, try not to stand face to face with people, turn your back to a corner or to a wall. After the trip, wash your hands and face, rinse your nose with saline.
Home mode. If you have a runny nose, cough and sore throat, fever – stay at home and take a sick leave. This will help protect your colleagues from the flu, and you can quickly cope with the disease and avoid serious complications.
