Some health experts have summed up the WHO, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other agencies generally recognized by experts in the lives of health tips. While many of the recommendations are not familiar with, but if people from the start with these details meticulously, the whole community will be able to a large extent reduce the risk of the spread of influenza. From the details of life to prevent influenza A H1N1 influenza should pay attention to the following four points:
Hand is a respiratory virus, a major route of transmission. The prevention of influenza, it is imperative that wash their hands frequently.
While this approach sounds simple, but only washed thoroughly, put in place to effectively away from the virus. Experts say that people should try to wash their hands with warm water or hot water, use soap, not only to smear the fingers and palm, but also the lower part of smear nails, between fingers and around wrists. Rub your hands with each other long enough and then washed with water.
In addition to methodologically sound, hand-washed need diligent and frequent. Experts say, whether or not get the flu, people before meals and after, Once on shore, should wash their hands after sneezing and coughing.
If you are already infected with influenza virus, the patient should "add a little horse power," wash your hands to prevent the virus through contact with the patient re-dissemination of the things.
Cover their nose and mouth
Of influenza virus transmission is another means of transmission is "people from the nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing, splashing out in the saliva." Experts therefore recommended that people sneeze Bend your arm, blocking the mouth and nose with the arm to prevent the saliva into the air.
"To remain in the jacket or sleeve saliva than to let the saliva flying surfaces, and even directly sprayed to others better," Qiaozhi Di Ferdinando health experts say any more. Of course, remember to wash your hands after.

"Through the air-borne viruses and other viruses different," University of Michigan School of Public Health epidemiologist 詹姆斯库普曼 said, "because first of all every breath you inhale a small amount of time there will be viruses, if someone coughs around your finger on the will be infected with the virus out of coughing, followed by fingers inadvertently run into the eyes, nose, mouth, or any one directly inside the body the heart's position, the amount of the virus will suddenly become more. "
Although it is difficult to completely eliminate hand-face contact, but the comfort Di Ferdinando said that there is no need to worry about it, because "if we continue to wash your hands, keep hands clean, even if the hand reached into his mouth directly into the body of the influenza virus will be significantly reduced. "
Taking into account the specificity of influenza, experts recommend that people stay away from influenza patients.
Di Ferdinando explained that the virus should not be suspended in the air, but through saliva and other vector attached to the object.
