5 Ways To Guard Against Germs In Everyday Life
Germs are everywhere, at every turn you take and at everything you touch. Even the air you inhale has germs. But there are a few things you can do to reduce these germ infections around you and in your environment. Follow these small things and share among your friends and colleagues as well.
1. Keep a Safe 6-Foot Distance - When someone cough or sneeze you should be 6 foot away from that person because of can germs spread only in distance of 6 foot or 2m. Not only with the person who sneezes but with every other person who has any type of infection or some other disease during school hours and office hours especially. You should also avoid different interacting activities like a handshake, hugging, sharing a car ride and sharing hotel rooms when you are sick because of the Flu.
2. Wash/Sanitize Your Hands - When you cough and sneeze and touch the other body organs then you catch germs more fastly and frequently so you should wash your hand if you are sneezing or having cold and cough. You should also wash your hand before eating & handling food, handling a newborn baby, etc.
3. Don't Share Personal Items - Never share personal items with others which will come in contact with saliva and other body fluids. Especially the nebulizer or any other equipment that is used directly on body.
4. Avoid Frequent Contact with Dust and Dirt - There are germs hidden in the soil and if you touch the soil or stay in the area around dust then you can be infected with these germs. Spend limited time in gardening, playing in soil, being around a construction project, etc. and wash your hands as soon as you come back home. Children are infected the most from the soil as they are more keen to play in these areas.
