AH1N1


What can I do to protect myself from getting sick? Good health practices when the is sickness in the home.
  • Teach your family to wash their hands with soap OFTEN Help the children to wash their hands and upper arms singing Happy Birthday, Bahay Kubo (Philippine Children Song) or Popcorn popping song and have them wash until they sing the full song then rinse well.
  • Clean up all trash and junk piles, these areas make great homes for rats, rodents and mice and they carry disease.
  • Eat foods that are high in vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) Drink a lots of liquids, eat good meals and get a lot of rest.
  • If any member of the family is sick / has fever do not let them go to work or school you should self quarantine / or go into insulation.
  • Stay away from other people that are or have had sickness or fever in there homes. Add a couple drops of plain household bleach to your dish water to kill germs.
  • Learn and teach your family to keep your hands away from your mouth and face, unless you are covering a sneeze. Germs spread this way.
  • Teach your children to keep their fingers / hands from their nose, eyes and their personal parts of their body.
  • Be sure those that are taking care of your family members (day care) follow good safety and health guidance.
  • Should the person get sick or have fever you should replace there toothbrush or soak it in light bleach water and rinse really well.
  • Everyone should have their own glass / cup and not drink out of another.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.
  • Stay home if you are sick for 7-10 days after the symptom-free for 48 hours, whichever is longer. this is to keep from infecting others and spreading the virus further.

Do you have the H1N1 near you! There have been some cases in cities near ours, but none here in our city. Thank goodness! Your article reminds everyone to practice good hygiene, and to stay home when sick! I always hated when I worked in the public when folks would come out with a cold, and I would catch it! Stay healthy!

Maggie thanks a lot!

Bradpetehoops said...

Maggie said is important cleaning homes and surroundings is very useful so that bacteria, virus, insects, rodents, flies, dust mites and mosquitoes are least presence in our home.

Bradpetehoops said...

Now there are 40 countries with cases of H1N1 virus.

Bradpetehoops said...

10,000+ people now in peril. Let us do the prevention stuff.

Bradpetehoops said...

Poorer countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America are far from ready to deal with an H1N1 pandemic. Let us pray and prevent the pandemic.

Bradpetehoops said...

Prevention is better than cure.
