  • Ensure that safe drinking water is available and toilets or latrines are clean and available at home or Ensure waste is safely collected, stored and disposed of o Cough and sneeze into a tissue or your elbow and avoid touching your face, eyes, mouth, nose
  • Encourage your children to ask questions and express their feelings with you and their teachers. Remember that your child may have different reactions to stress; be patient and understanding.

What is the difference between a Cold and Flu?
According to the CDC, ‘’Flu and the common cold are both respiratory illnesses but they are caused by different viruses. Because these two types of illnesses have similar symptoms, it can be difficult to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone. In general, flu is worse than the common cold, and symptoms are more intense. Colds are usually milder than flu. People with colds are more likely to have a runny or stuffy nose. Colds generally do not result in serious health problems, such as pneumonia, bacterial infections, or hospitalizations. Flu can have very serious associated complications.

  • Step 1: Wet hands with running water
  • Step 2: Apply enough soap to cover wet hands
  • Step 3: Scrub all surfaces of the hands – including backs of hands, between fingers and under nails – for at least 20 seconds
  • Step 4: Rinse thoroughly with running water
  • Step 5: Dry hands with a clean, dry cloth, single-use towel or hand drier as available

  • Wash your hands before and after eating; after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom/ toilet and whenever your hands are visibly dirty.
    If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
    Human beings adapt very easily to change, even if we do not like the changes.
    It takes only 18 days to form a habit/routine.
