The following measures can help protect you and others from infection:
- It is important to wash your hands regularly. Germs collect on your hands throughout the day and can be spread through contact with your mouth, nose and other people.
- Make sure food is thoroughly cooked before eating.
- Avoid close contact with people who have infections as some germs can be spread throughout the air by sneezing and coughing.
- Use condoms during sexual intercourse to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases
