What are the flu symptoms?

Here are some of the common symptoms of the flu:
  • Sore throat
  • Cough
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Chills
  • Body Pains
  • Fatigue
  • Vomiting and diarrhea (common in children)

With the current flu virus outbreak, we must remain vigilant!

Did youknow that Australian Tea Tree Oil (compliant to ISO standards which is found inGelAir products) – is effective in inactivating influenza virus? And when put in the aircon filter, it also helps in inactivation airborne viruses. See study

Below are 9 Easy Flu Prevention Tips

1. Wash hands all the time.

Always make sure that you wash your hands with soap and water, especially after using the toilets/restrooms, coughing, sneezing, and before eating. You can add 20 drops of tea tree oil per 100 ml of liquid hand soap to help with killing germs.

2. Carry a hand sanitizer and use it when hand washing is not possible

Your sneezy coworkers, that stuffy-nosed kid reminds us that germs are everywhere. We know that the best thing to do to keep yourself and your family members healthy is to wash your hands regularly. The only problem is we can’t bring our sink everywhere. The best option is to use hand sanitizer.

3. Sanitize hands after touching handles, handrails, doorknobs, etc.

Door handles are the common area where we can pick up germs, especially public handles. Sanitize your hands often to prevent infection.

4. Wear a mask when going outside

Nowadays wearing a protective mask is a must. Masks may protect you against germs, make sure that they fit snugly on your face, without any gaps.

5. Pour water in all drains every day

Pouring water in all drains every day will keep the u-shape drain filled up with water, preventing airborne viruses to get in through the drainage system. This is very importance especially for those that live in high-rise buildings. When an infected resident introduces a virus to the drainage system, then virus-laden aerosol created as waste is discharged. The droplets are carried to upper apartments by the air current. So it’s very important to always pour water in all drains every day.

6. Use Gelair health e split in all aircon systems

Our homes have airborne germs, mold, bacteria, and viruses Air conditioners provide the perfect environment for these germs to thrive. Air conditioners recirculate germs throughout your home, every time you turned on. Gelair™ Health-e SPLIT is the simplest way to stop mold an, d bacteria, and viruses in your air conditioner (split or window type) and your room. The patented technology delivers controlled and sustained Australian Tea Tree Oil vapor throughout the airconditioner, killing mold, bacteria, and viruses.
