The CDC flu pandemic alert gives us a situation update and analyzes all data and information about the H1N1 influenza virus that is spreading through out the world. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention publish their findings of the flu indicators in a report “FluView”. It was found that the H1N1 influenza activity has increased in the US. Apart from this, the CDC also posts general information on how to take care of a person infected by the virus, the 2009 H1N1 vaccine, Anti viral drugs, use of facemask and respirators etc.
The CDC has advised people to stay informed as their website is updated regularly and all information and data is available. The fact that influenza is spread from person to person through sneezing and coughing, it is wise to keep one’s nose, eyes and mouth covered by a facemask or N95 respirator.
The CDC have recommended various measures that have to be followed strictly like covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when you sneeze or cough and then throwing away the tissue in the trash after it has been used; disposal of facemasks and respirators in the correct manner – without touching the outside infected part; washing your hands often with a sanitizer etc. The CDC also recommends that you stay away from work or school if you get sick.
Use of the Smittstopp spray ensures your safety against the swine flu virus. This spray has a long term protection and can be used on any surface material. The spray dries quickly and leaves a thin coating of cationic polymer on the surface. This layer is positively charged and attracts the negatively charged microorganisms to it, destroying them in an instant. This principle is electrostatic attraction and is very effective in killing viruses and bacteria in the air.
The Smittstopp spray should be used in public areas like toilets, hotels and restaurants, pubs, shopping centers, schools and educational institutions, clinics and hospitals, amusement parks, public libraries etc. All surfaces of switches, taps, door knobs, handles, railings, table and counter tops etc should be sprayed to keep curb infection and lower risks. Personal items too like jewelry, watches, spectacles, cell phones, keys, purses and handbags, etc should be sprayed.
The surfaces should also be kept very clean to maximize the protection. No ordinary cleaner or spray should be used on top of the Smittstopp sprayed surface because these cleaners are usually negatively charged and will neutralize the effect. One can even spray clothes with the Smittstopp spray. Tests have proved that the effect is still strong even after a number of washes. The spray destroys the harmful viruses before they have a chance to breed and spread into the environment.
The CDC flu pandemic alert also outlines the need for guidance and health care for specific groups like pregnant women, child care programs, travelers, lab assistants, people with HIV, Diabetes, etc. Guidance for public meetings and assemblies which include church services, sporting events, concerts, weddings etc that are attended by large crowds and where the risk of infection is increased, is given by the CDC who recommends that strict precautionary measures be followed by one and all and those who are feeling ill should avoid such gatherings.
