Mexicali, (Notimex) .- The Secretary of State for Health is recommended, in anticipation of low levels registered in the organization, to take measures to protect the health, to prevent acute respiratory and influenza infections.
The head of the Guillermo Trejo Dozal section has shown that appearing in the cold is a common occurrence, so adults should be asked to cover their nose, mouth and ears with children under five years of age. Groups are vulnerable.
It underlines that prior to seasonal temperatures it is very important to take into account the following preventive measures: avoiding sudden warming, temperature and draft drafts.
Eat vitamin C rich in fruits, such as orange, lemon, grapefruit and guava; often wash your hands, especially when you are in contact with people with the disease, when you cover nose and mouth by coughing or stomaching.
Avoid direct greetings either by kiss or by hand to eliminate the infection options to prevent the transmission of the virus, using cold water and soap.
It is important for parents to identify signs and symptoms of a child with acute respiratory infection: quick breathing, breathing reduction, drinking or breastfeeding, fever, purulent tonsil, or ear for more than three days.
During the winter season of 2018-2019, 18379 were consulted for acute infectious infants and 4.123 children under the age of five.
In addition, a call to apply a vaccine against the flu in healthcare units was carried out, and in the case of an alarm, do not self medicate and go to a healthier unit near the home.
