With the outbreak of infectious and dangerous viruses around Lebanon, particularly the H1N1 Swine Flu virus, Boecker, the leading provider of integrated public health solutions, has taken the initiative to propose a modernized umbrella of safety for Lebanese citizens in all aspects of their health. In this context, Boecker suggests Microbecs, a powerful range of disinfectants against H1N1 and other kinds of germs. Mircrobecs offers a series of solutions, certified in their use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The product can be used by selecting Boecker’s Infection Control Plan (ICP) which disinfects surfaces and air inside a room. Consumers can also use Microbecs’ spray, available for daily cleansing to prolong the effectiveness of the ICP treatment. This non-conventional range features superior efficiency, is completely safe and works with no side effects. Ms. Bana Kobrosly, Country Manager of Boecker in Lebanon, commented, “This non-traditional disinfectant provides effective prevention to this dangerous virus, as well as inhibits its transfer from an infected person to another. Microbecs offers a series of individual solutions specialized in disinfecting rooms and surfaces at homes and offices of institutions. We want to assure citizens that there are precautions that could be taken to reduce the risk of H1N1 infection and that the adoption of advanced disinfection solutions has proven to be successful worldwide for completely eliminating this threat.” Within the framework of educating the public on ways to prevent the H1N1 virus, Boecker published five tips to avoid infection from the diseases, summarized as per the following:
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze: To avoid H1N1 transmission, cough or sneeze into a tissue as viruses spread when coughing and sneezing. It is important to throw the tissue in the trash after using it.
- Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently: Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. This step could decrease the number of germs present in your hand. If soap and water are not available, use an anti-bacterial hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth: A virus enters the body when you rub your eyes. Also avoid touching your nose, as germs can enter the body via the oral and respiratory nasal route.
- Avoid contact with sick people: During H1N1 outbreaks, stay away from crowds as the virus could be transmitted via respiratory system when people cough or sneeze without using the right etiquette. It’s preferable to use surgical masks to reduce the risk of influenza.
