Wear Gloves in Public for Your Protection

Protecting Yourself from H1N1 Flu, Grippe, or Influenza Infection

The only advice given is to “wash your hands”. And then, they tell people to cover up when coughing or sneezing. That only works for carriers of the disease.

Hand-washing is always a good idea, and some of us live every day as if there were a rampant infection on the land. It will do you no good if you touch something with live germs on it, and the virus enters your skin. Or, if you just accidentally touch your face before washing or sterilizing hands with antibacterial gel. Nearly everyone has a torn cuticle or papercut, through which the virus will immediately invade the body.

The only way to protect your hands from germs in everyday contact with the public is to wear gloves. This includes while grocery shopping and visiting other public establishments. And, since this flu virus is airborne, run like Hell when someone coughs or sneezes, and do not let a cashier with a runny nose ring up your purchases. Once you bring your supplies home,unpack them wearing latex or rubber gloves, throw them into the sink and wash them before storage.

Taking Vitamin-D3 and C in large doses daily is said to help boost your immune system and reduce the chances of contracting the current flu viruses. Please see Elegant Survival Health for more tips.
