Right now we are in the coldest season of the year. Therefore, you have to know how to take the necessary measures to avoid easily getting the flu.

In case you are going to sneeze, you should cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue or wear a facemask all the time.
There is a well-known phrase that says: ‘coughs and sneezes spread diseases’.  With this simple method, we can protect the people around us.

You always have to throw away used tissues in the trash can and afterwards wash your hands for a space longer than 20 seconds.
Using soap and warm water is the most effective way to kill germs and bacteria on your hands. In case you do not have access to this, always carry a small bottle of Sanitizing gel with you

We must constantly sanitize places with high traffic and also objects that are in normal use.
Restrooms at work are not the dirtiest places in an office. On the contrary, the objects of more continuous use are those that harbor a greater number of germs, such as desks, keyboards, cell phones. But where there may be more danger are door handles, elevator and photocopiers buttons. Since all these are used by the largest number of people.

Try not to touch your face.
Avoid touching your face or biting your nails, as this is the easiest and fastest way to ingest germs. You should wash your hands at regular intervals.
