Wash your hands

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - Health -

Thor­ough hand wash­ing is the most ef­fec­tive step in break­ing the chains of in­fec­tion, says en­vi­ron­men­tal health ex­pert Dr Lisa Ack­er­ley. ‘Cold and flu viruses can also be rubbed into the eyes or nose so keep hands away from faces. If any­one in your house­hold suc­cumbs, stop the virus spread­ing by keep­ing them in one place, get­ting them to cough and sneeze into their el­bow or a tis­sue and pro­vide them with a lined bin to pop used tis­sues into straight away.’
