ALCOHOL SANITIZERS TO THE RESCUE AGAINST THE SWINE FLU
Just when the first suspected Swine Flu case was reported in my office, my company took a major precautionary step against it by installing several Alcohol based Sanitizers in the company premises. The clear instruction was to apply the spirit from the Alcohol Sanitizers at a regular interval of say 4-5 hours and it will help us fight against any virus including the Swine Flu.
At first, I thought how could this thing going to make a difference and now here I m after more than a month and no Swine Flu case reported since its installation. Not only that I have seen these Alcohol Sanitizers being installed at various public places like- KFC, Multiplexes and many companies. From my personal experience and observation the Alcohol Sanitizers have done the trick, and they are certainly helping us fight against the Swine Flu.
In fact, there has been an official study about the Alcohol Sanitizers Vs the bacteria and viruses, and the good news is these sanitizers are working in our favor. There have been some studies done over the years and the conclusion is washing our hands using these Alcohol Sanitizers is a good idea. If you are having a busy day and if you find it hard to get to a sink, then carry a bottle of hand sanitizer with you because that will help you fight against any viral infections.
The conclusion is if we apply it (Alcohol Sanitizer) on our hands, they become very noninfectious to viruses. It’s simple if you put it on the hands and the viruses simply won’t be able to cling to them. So, it does reduce the amount of a virus that can cling to our hands but it does not kill it. Alternatively, it also can’t harm us in any way.
Hence, Alcohol Sanitizers can be one major utility, which can help us protect against the Swine Flu and as they say it “Prevention is better than cure”, I see there is no harm in installing such Alcohol based Sanitizers in our premises but make sure you are not an Alcohol addict because then your stock of sanitizer is going to end soon, just kidding. On a serious note, I would say that it has worked for several companies here and I hope it will work for everyone else too.
