ear children, wherever you are or play from, you are exposed to germs such as bacteria and viruses.
These deadly germs can be transmitted in several different ways, especially by touching dirty objects.
We can also get the germs from contaminated water and food, coughing or a sneezing, playing in contaminated surfaces and also through a sick person’s body fluids.
If kids pick up germs from one of these sources, they can unknowingly become infected simply by touching their eyes, nose, or mouth. And once they are infected, it is usually just a matter of time before the whole family comes down with the same illness.
Good hand washing is your first line of defense against the spread of many illnesses. Wash your hands in warm water. Make sure the water is not too hot for little hands.
Apply soap to your hands for about 10 to 15 seconds. Make sure you get in between the fingers and under the nails where germs like to hang out.
Clean and dry your hands well with a clean towel or cloth to minimize the germs passed around your family.
Make regular hand washing a rule for everyone, especially: before eating or taking food, after using the bathroom, after cleaning around the house.
Our hands should be washed after touching animals, including family pets, before and after visiting or taking care of any sick friends or relatives, after coughing or sneezing and after playing.
