How to Prevent Flu

Articles 19 Jul 2018

Sneezing, headaches, sore throat, that’s all the signals which mean you will get the flu. In the worst case, flu can cause pneumonia or secondary bacterial infections that can be fatal. But it should be a disease that can be prevent. Let’s check how to prevent it.

1. Get the flu shot.

Vaccination is a safe and effective way to protect against the flu; people who get vaccinations are at higher risk than those who do not. When you get a flu vaccine, your body releases antibodies that can protect you from the most common flu viruses.

2. Clean the communal surfaces at least once a day.

The flu virus can stay alive without host for about 24 hours. In general, all household appliances will be contaminated with the flu virus if you live with someone with the flu. That’s why you have to clean up the communal equipment, such as cell phone chargers, refrigerator handles, and light switches at least once a day.

3. Strengthen your immune system.

With enough rest and a high nutritious menu during the rainy season, can strengthen your body resistance. In addition to how to warm the body (warm drink, warm bath, balm rubbing), choose also high nutritious menu, especially high-protein (eggs, milk, meat), not enough if only vegetable menu.

4. Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption.

Both types of these substances can potentially reduce your body resistance. Smoking can “hurt” the airway mucous membranes, making the airway more susceptible to virus entry. Smoking room can weakening the airway conditions of people who inhale it as well (passive smokers).

Even a clean-looking environment is not guaranteed to prevent us from getting the flu. The most effective is to get the flu vaccine. If flu symptoms are more severe such as persistent fever or shortness of breath, you better visit a doctor.
