The numbers present a clearer picture of the challenge you face.
3,500,000 – 5,600,000 medical visits
76,000 – 160,000 flu hospitalizations
4,700 – 14,000 flu deaths
SO WHAT ABOUT OTHER GERMS YOU COME IN CONTACT WITH DAY IN AND DAY OUT?
MRSA, Fungicide and Mildewstat, H1N1, H5N1 Bird Flu Virus, Black Mold, and even Blood Borne Pathogens. And so much more.
SO, WHERE DO GERMS HANG OUT?
You might have considered some of these places, but have you thought about what you contact within your daily routine? Consider where germs can congregate. Anything and everything you touch, whether it be an office phone, cell phone, door handle, countertop, glassware, utensils, eyeglasses, pens, keyboard, mouse, toilet seats, bathroom faucets, sinks ... the list can go on and on. It can be overwhelming to think about.
Have you considered the handshake, the welcoming hug, the elevator cough, or that party you were recently at? Yes, germs love people congregating in malls, movie theaters, grocery stores, restaurants, public transportation, and even at the opera.
