Personal hygiene

The problem: Transmission of diseases.

The reason: Too less hygiene.
There are the following ways how diseases are transmitted:
  • Drinking contaminated water.
  • Eating contaminated food.
  • Breathing contaminated air (max. approx. 3 m distance from contaminated person).
  • Touching contaminated surface.
  • Through contaminated body fluids (saliva, blood, ...).

The solution: Adequate personal hygiene
There are several quite easy methods to reduce the transmition of bacteria and viruses:
  • Wash your hands.
  • Wash your food.
  • Avoid public transports at rush hour especially in the seasons of flu.
  • Avoid giving hands.
  • Wear gloves when working in places with higher risk of contaminations.
Unfortunately I do recognize that a lot of people don't wash their hands after been on the toilet. By not washing their hands they distribute bacteria either through all the door handles they touch and when giving their hands for greeting. A minimum hygiene that everybody should do automatically.
