Forewarned is forearmed!
With the onset of the rainy season comes the dreaded cold season. You might notice quite a few sneezes and runny noses around you—the malls, on the train, even the office. And of course, you don’t want to get infected.
Take note of the following places where you can easily get the sniffles infection:
If you drive a car, disinfecting regularly would be a good idea. But if you regularly ride the train, bus, jeepney or tricycle to work, you will most likely be in contact with the cold and flu virus on your way to and from work. Make sure to wash your hands and face regularly, especially right after getting off your commute.
Thank goodness for tech innovations as they make life easier for us. The drawback, though, is getting in contact with something that almost everyone uses on a daily basis. This is especially true now that most ATM machines have touchscreens. Carrying wet tissue or a tiny bottle of rubbing alcohol around would be wise.
It’s almost a sure thing that there would be at least one person who’s got the cold virus inside a movie theater. And you sitting there for the hour and a half to two hours of the movie’s runtime would surely get in contact with the droplets that are airborne once someone sneezes. If you are going to see a movie this season, always have a mask handy.
No matter how spick and span the restrooms look, you can never be too sure. What you should be wary of are door handles—these are almost always neglected to be cleaned and disinfected. Try not to touch these directly. And try not to touch the tiled walls either.
Forget about getting stuck in an elevator: These boxes are sure incubators of germs and bacteria. If someone sneezes inside, the virus will have nowhere to go, and the cold virus can linger inside for days. Better put on a mask when riding one going to your office floor. On escalators, try not to hold on the hand rails.
Most offices thoroughly clean their pantry only once a week, usually at the end of the work week. Be wary of things commonly used, such as utensils, the coffee pot, as well as the lip of the water dispenser. Bring your own utensils, and suggest to HR to have the coffee pot washed after each brew.
It’s inevitable that Filipinos would go inside a mall, whether it’s to escape the heat or to seek shelter from the rain. In fact, one is bound to go inside a mall even on the way to the office or commuter terminals. It’s no surprise then that these malls are sure to be carrying the cold virus. Disinfect every now and then, and make sure to always wash your hands.
Everything you have touched and all that you’ve inhaled are surely on your phone’s surface. Yes, that includes the cold virus that are going around this season. While it seems that there’s no escaping bacteria and germs, staying clean and taking precautions are the best measures you have against the cold and flu virus.
