The new strain of Swine Flu is causing concern.
I have attached a document for your guidance.
The virus is primarily airborne and is spread when people cough or sneeze, however, Sir Liam Donaldson, England’s Chief Medical Officer, has given the following basic measures which EVERYONE should take to reduce the risk of infection.
•   Cover your mouth and nose when you are coughing or sneezing, using a tissue wherever possible.
•   Dispose of dirty tissues promptly and carefully – bag and bin them.
•   Maintain good hygiene – washing hands frequently in approved and tested soap and water protects against picking the virus up from surfaces and passing it on.
•   Clean hard surfaces frequently, using an approved cleaning product.
Good hand hygiene alone will not prevent the spread of the disease due to the main route of transmission being through the air, but there is a range of evidence to suggest that the virus which causes ‘flu’ passes easily from hand to hand and hence people who wash their hands frequently are less likely to catch respiratory diseases.
Chemsol provides a range of products which can help sustain high levels of hand and surface hygiene, including soaps and sanitisers. However, just by implementing ‘best practice’ in hygiene largely based on the above points, the risk of infection from a number of viruses can be greatly reduced
