Prevention against viruses

Whether we catch flu or corona depends on many factors, such as lack of sleep, unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, psychological stress or poor hygiene. All of the above factors influence our immune system, which is responsible for fighting off pathogens such as viruses. Here’s what you can do to protect yourself from viruses.

Respiratory diseases such as corona or influenza are transmitted by tiny droplets containing viruses. Sick people spread the contaminated droplets when sneezing or coughing. Because viruses survive for some time on objects, surfaces and clothing, people can become infected via what is known as smear infection when they come into contact with it and then bring their hand to their eyes, nose or mouth. In the process, the viruses can enter the body through the mucous membranes. However, the risk of infection can be reduced with the following preventive measures.
