Human infection with swine flu is threatening. It is particularly important for the elderly and children to take the necessary protective measures for these weaker groups. Experts say parents should help children develop good hygiene practices to prevent transmission of respiratory diseases such as swine flu.
These good hygiene habits include: covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing and sneezing, throwing used tissue into the trash can; washing your hands with water and soap regularly, and wiping them with alcohol-free hand sanitizer if there is no water; keeping children away from people who cough or sneeze; and not rubbing your eyes with your hands and touching them. Touch the nose or mouth, etc.
If the child has breathing frequency too fast or breathing difficulties, it means that there are respiratory diseases. In addition, if the child has symptoms such as irritability, sleepiness, unwillingness to eat or fever, it is better to go to the hospital.
In addition, if parents have flu symptoms such as fever, headache, fatigue, cough, sore throat, runny nose or general pain, they should go to the nearest hospital for treatment as soon as possible and try to avoid contact with their children.
Experts remind parents to pay close attention to children with respiratory diseases. If fever occurs (oral temperature is higher than 37.5 C, axillary temperature is higher than 37.8 C, Anal temperature is higher than 38 C), respiratory symptoms, or less active than usual, they should be taken to the hospital immediately.
