We are all concerned about facing the possibility of the dreaded H1 N1 virus coming our way and all we seem to be able to do about it is, listen to the news casts, read what they tell us in the newspapers and perhaps what we see on the internet. We are told to wash our hand regularly and thoroughly and that this is possibly the best way to avoid being infected. President Obama has already decided that full blown pandemic conditions exist across the USA and that federally controlled measures will be coming into place for the American people.
This is all very well being told all of this and perhaps those of who actually survive the so called Swine Flu without affect on us or our families will eventually agree 殺菌產品‘ that the advice given now was in fact good. Then again, for those unfortunate people who lose a loved one to this deadly virus, the mixed advice of today may not be so readily acceptable or for that matter understood. Washing our hands thoroughly is good and well, but the majority of confirmed cases where people have been contaminated by this virus have been affected by airborne microbial particles and that’s a fact. So, washing our hands will do little to block off our nose and our mouth from inhalation of the germs that start the condition.
Television advertising has taken off lately in the direction of H1 N1 prevention with all the standard products like Lysol and so on, all claiming and rightly so that they will kill 99.9% of all germs, including the H1 N1 virus. This may well be true and who am I to even doubt their claims? However, consider this; washing down our counters, door handles, wash rooms and so on with these brand name disinfectants will kill the germs and microbial bacteria but only during the time we are wiping these surfaces and perhaps for a very short time there after. Once the cleaned surfaces have been used again or touched by someone, they immediately become contaminated again. Now we are vulnerable once more and we have to go out and keep buying more and more of these disinfectants.
