The doctor insists on the rules of disease prevention!
How we defend – 4 simple rules
1 Avoid contact with patients: Avoid crowds (public transport, public spaces), where there is an increased risk of contact with an infected person, stay away from people who cough or sneeze, do not visit or go to collectives, especially school, patients .
Do not take your child to the community if you experience fever, chills, cough, or incorrect nasal discharge.
The patient will be isolated from the rest of the family in a separate, airy room with an average temperature of 22-24 degrees.
2. Observe general and individual hygiene rules: use handkerchiefs and handwashing, put your hands to your mouth when coughing or sneezing, avoid contamination, touching your eyes or mouth with your hands, daily ventilation in your home or office, maintaining temperature 18-22 degrees and hygiene of premises and surface. Wash your hands with soap and water as often as possible, wash for at least 20 seconds, put pressure on the folds and interdigital spaces, then dry your hands with paper towels or hot air, or if you are not near the water you can use, with less effectiveness, an alcohol-based disinfectant.
3. Avoid thermal stress: proper clothing, warm liquids, avoid morning and night travels when it is very cold, alternate rest in heated rooms, such as pubs and shops.
4. Observe the appropriate diet: based on fresh fruits and vegetables, rich in vitamins, quitting smoking, avoiding alcohol consumption, respecting the rest program.
1. Transfer from one person to another easily through the air (speech, coughing, sneezing) or through direct or indirect contact with respiratory secretions on hands or contaminated surfaces
2. The most vulnerable are people over 65, children under 5, pregnant women, people with immunodeficiency, patients with chronic respiratory diseases or cardiovascular disease.
3. Avoid self-healing. All treatments, including vaccinations, should only be carried out by order of family physicians or specialists.
4. Discriminatory antibiotic therapy is not only inadequate, but potentially dangerous! It can lead to the selection of resistant germs, worsening of basic conditions or many undesirable side effects.
