There was an article at the Wail about a flu “epidemic” and I thought here we go – the sensationalist Wail against what really is. How can I tellwhat’s going on out there if I’m home here?
This was interesting from one reader:
Avoid public transport and stay away from super spreaders – children ! Hygiene – If unavoidable [contact], wash your hands more frequently- stop touching your face – leave your outdoor clothing / shoes at the door. Up the vitamin D3 & C – ventilate rooms even in winter – open a window – blow your nose and clean your teeth more frequently – Hydrate with water – flush the body out. All common sense unfortunately it’s not that common.
The fluids and cleaning down surfaces for sure, avoiding people and animals, I’ve also always suspected the water in winter so thorough boiling, keep boiled in jars, ventilation and warmth good, proper nutrition, up the vitamins a bit, use tissue or loo roll flushed after use, avoid hankies, wash hands after loo – sleep, change bed linen more often, don’t kiss or cuddle.
Having said all that, I feel I might be coming down with something just now, blogging might be light or non-existent tomorrow. There is peripheral illness and then core. This is mild but core this time.
Hope and pray you’re Ok and taking normal, sensible precautions.
