Bird Flu Pandemic
What are the easiest things citizens can do to prevent spreading in an epidemic outbreak in America of a virus. There are many things you can do and warn your kids not to do; for instance tell your children; Do not touch handrails in public places and buses. Whenever possible; do not sit on and stay off park benches. You should wipe of gym equipment after each use when working out. Do not go to a movie and sit on theater seats with shorts on or bare skin touching.
At work you should be sure to clean bathrooms hourly as required by most company policies. If you work a Super Market; Shopping cart thorough cleaning is necessary. If you go to the grocery store do not put their kids in the carts without wiping them off. Be careful with escalator handrails should be sanitized on the bottom cycle, run through a sanitizing system, pretty easy really.
At banks people should use their own pens, not the one on the rope, touched by hundreds of different people per day after touching money which has gone through thousands of hands without cleaning and viruses can get into the fibers. Debit cards are a good way to keep this from happening. Un kept public swimming pools are a problem too. Copy machine buttons and public phones (not as big a deal since the cellular phone craze) are also a problem. Elevator buttons are also a biggy. The one that people may not realize is doctor's offices and hospitals, they are down right dangerous in case of an outbreak of anything. Be wise if things get tough and we find our own nation at risk of an epidemic or pandemic. Be thinking here in case. Why not start practicing now?
