Controlling the spread of bird flu pandemic is a huge concern not only for people in industrialized nations, but also for people living in less-developed countries. Bird flu is highly transmissible through direct contact of an infected bird’s nasal secretions with their hands or face. There have been many reports of people who have used swimming pools to try to avoid being exposed to the bird flu, but ended up coming into contact with one anyway, and thus becoming infected. The same scenario can happen to you if you are exposed to the bird flu virus. Although most people are protected from getting the bird flu through swimming, there is still no guarantee that you will not come into contact with any of the bird flu strains circulating in the community.
Controlling the spread of this disease is not only a matter of protecting yourself from other people; it is also a matter of controlling the spread of this disease within your own household. Mask wearing and frequent hand washing might slow down the spread of this virus, but at the moment, masks are in short supply in most countries, and even early hand washing is sometimes impossible. To test the effectiveness of three kinds of masks and their corresponding hand washing methods, the infection of ten guinea pigs was simulated using the recently identified avian influenza strain to simulate the coronavirus in a laboratory. After six weeks, all the experimental animals were treated with a control group of healthy adults.
After six weeks, none of the groups showed any signs of illness. This study did not look into the safety of using face masks in the general public. If, however, people already have a great many masks on when they go out of their homes every day, they run the risk of spreading the infection to others while they do not feel sick, and when they become ill they will not wear their masks anymore. It may seem like an exaggeration to focus on the general public’s health when it comes to the risks of contact with this highly lethal virus; but if something as deadly as this can be transmitted easily through a facemask, how much safer is the rest of us?
The results of this study showed that the average size of the particles generated by a facemask was approximately thirty times smaller than that produced by an influenza virus. In addition, these particles, once deposited on the facial area, could be carried on the person’s clothing. If the particles were then spread across an entire community, an epidemic could begin before it was realized. The researchers estimate that, in order for a person to contract a case of coronavirus, there should be at least one person in their household with the disease who has worn a facemask. Therefore, if there are any people in your household who already have the disease, it may be advisable for you to invest in face masks.
When you are selecting a face mask, it is important to consider the level of protection you need. There are masks, which will provide full protection and those which will only cover a specific area of your nose or mouth. The types of nose covers that are currently available range in price from less than twenty dollars to more than one hundred dollars, depending on the design. Obviously, the more expensive designs provide better protection, especially from inhalation of germs and viruses.
When it comes to protecting yourself, one of the easiest methods of protection is wearing a n95 mask. This is an airtight vinyl mask that will prevent most forms of bacteria and viruses from entering the lungs. It is also very effective at preventing the transfer of respiratory viruses and respiratory illnesses from one individual to another. However, in order to eliminate the threat of cold sores, you should wear a standard safety mask at all times. These are available in both disposable and permanent forms.
For the general public, there is no known cure for this deadly virus, nor any way to prevent it from spreading. Therefore, it is important to stop buying surgical masks and start using a home purifier to combat this pandemic. The best protection is prevention. By choosing a home purifier for your home or office, you can ensure that you are safe from this deadly virus.
If you already have an existing condition or are prone to getting respiratory infections, it is strongly recommended that you speak to a healthcare provider about the risks associated with nasal mucous build up. Individuals who suffer from severe allergies should also avoid contact with any individuals who are suffering from this condition. Although there is currently no known cure for this condition, it is always recommended that individuals use a purifier to wash their face twice daily and apply a face mask once per day. These simple steps will go a long way in preventing this pandemic.
