    Influenza Infection

    Influenza Infection. As you may have seen there is a high level of ‘flu infection in the community at the moment. Health Protection Scotland have issued the following advice; Infection Prevention and Control – ‘Flu is spread from person to person via droplets when coughing or sneezing, or by touching objects and surfaces that are contaminated with the virus (i.e. doorknobs and telephones) and then touching your eyes, nose or mouth. The influenza virus may persist for hours in dried mucus and be transmitted by direct contact. It is spread very easily indoors, which is why it is so prevalent in the winter months, when people spend more time together inside. - If possible, stay at home when you are sick. This will help prevent spreading your illness to others. - Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs - Good respiratory and cough hygiene will reduce the risk of cross-transmission of respiratory illness: Cover your nose and mouth with a disposable tissue when sneezing, coughing, wiping and blowing the nose. Dispose of all used tissues promptly into a waste bin. - Wash hands after coughing, sneezing, using tissues, or after contact with respiratory secretions or objects contaminated by these secretions. - Keep your hands away from your eyes nose and mouth. There is no need to see a doctor or nurse for ‘flu, unless you develop worsening or more serious symptoms such as breathlessness.
