How to prevent the spread of respiratory infections

Publicado el 12-03-2020

Below are some basic measures recommended by the World Health Organization to prevent the spread of respiratory infections:

 

First and foremost, wash your hands often

Wash your hands with soap and water and don’t forget to wash the palms, backs and between your fingers for at least 20-60 seconds.

When you dry your hands, don’t forget to turn off the faucet with the paper towel, so that your hands are still clean.

 

In addition, you should also take measures to ensure respiratory hygiene

When coughing or sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with your sleeve or a tissue; dispose of the tissue immediately and wash your hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

Why? Because if you sneeze or cough into your hands, you can contaminate objects or people you touch.
