4 WAYS TO: AVOID COLD AND FLU THIS WIN­TER

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - DR MIRIAM STOPPARD -

1 First and fore­most get a flu jab. It’s the most im­por­tant thing you can do to pre­vent the flu. 2

Keep a healthy life­style. It’s im­por­tant to look after your own health. Get enough rest, eat a healthy diet and don’t smoke. 3 Wash your hands. No matter what line of work you’re in, if you come into con­tact with peo­ple who are sick, you have to wash your hands over and over. Ten sec­onds in cold wa­ter will do. A good way to time your­self is to sing Happy Birth­day once. Make sure you wash the backs of your hands, be­tween your fin­gers and un­der your nails. 4

Use al­co­hol-based hand sani­tiser. If you can’t get to soap and wa­ter, sani­tiser can kill cold and flu germs.
