Ways to avoid and treat the common flu virus and keep from spreading to others.

Tips on How to Prevent Flu

1. Make it a habit to wash hands frequently.

2. Eat nutritious food especially enriched with vitamin C.

3. Avoid crowded places and those people who have colds and cough. It can easily be transmitted through touch and air. A person can easily get one if she/he touches things (examples are mobile phones, telephone,door knobs etc.) that are already contaminated with germs then touches his or her nose,eyes, or mouth.

4. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. It is also advisable that you keep distance to people to protect them from getting the virus from you. Cover your nose and mouth with the tissue and immediately dispose them to prevent from spreading.

5. Avoid being overstressed and ever fatigue. Body resistance weakens because of these.

6. Get enough sleep. One of the major reason of fatigue and stress is lack of rest. The body needs to regain strength and energy.

7. Be aware of the symptoms of flu such as muscle pain, headache, and rise in temperature that may lead to chilling. During winter and rainy season, flu is likely to persist to most people.

8. Drink lots of fluids especially citric juices.

9. Consult a doctor if symptoms persist.
