Step 1: Wash Your Hand Methodically !

To get rid of any microbes, you need to wash your hand, before eating, after eating, after getting to the toilets.

I advise you to always have an hydroalcoholic antibacterial pocket bottle, it cost 2$, and you can use it every time, without water, its dry by itself.

Step 2: Make Sure You Won't Contaminate Anybody

If you have contracted the virus, make sure you won't contaminate anyone, if you sneeze or cough, ALWAYS put a tishew on your mouth, throw it in a bean, and immediatelly wash your hand after it.

Step 3: In Last Resort ...

If the virus reach too much people, you will need to protect yourself against the disease. You can get vaccinated, or you can wear a mask to protect yourself everywhere (street, shop ...)

Be careful !!

    Thats fine but DO NOT use ANTIBACTERIAL SOAP
    Reason. The antibacterial soap contains a chemical like an antibiotic and they kills 99.9% of all germs. The 0.01% will gain immunity to that antibiotic resulting in adding more or stronger ones that kill another 99.9% and the 0.01% will gain immunity and that will keep going on until it is a superbug

    they put the 99.9% on there not because it fails to kill all the germs, but because that in the odd chance that someone reports getting sick after using it religiously, they won't be liable. 9 times out of 10, it kills all the germs.

    A face mask will not protect against any virus since they're too small to be picked up by the pores in the mask. If you can breath airparticles through it the virus will get through as well. If you can't breathe through it it will prevent the virus but then you'd be choked to death anyway.

    False! A face mask will protect you against H1N1 flu. Just make sure the face mask is N95 level surgical mask. They'll filter out up to 99.5% of H1N1 virus. A Home Depot face mask for sanding won't work. get the proper mask and it'll help. In fact, a mask is much more effective than washing hands. H1N1 is mostly contracted via short range exposure as the virus travels in airborne water particles. Washing your hands won't help against someone sneezing in your direction. If N95 masks weren't effective against H1N1, why is it that all health professionals are wearing these masks to treat people with H1N1? Because... THEY DO WORK!

    it probably works a different way... when you sneeze, you release millions of spit particles that are contaminated with the virus, the mask only needs to filter those particles out
