Beware of germs in the air

#HANGINfection is not just hype. Tiny, invisible germs in the air are real, and they are around us. Yes, even if you don’t touch germs, the germs can touch you! While we can’t see them with our naked eye, it does not mean we can’t fight them.

The more we know about #HANGINfection, the more we can protect ourselves. That’s why Safeguard, tsaid to be the Philippines’ Number 1 Family Skin Germ Protection Soap, is taking active steps to spread awareness about these airborne germs.
Here are five facts about #HANGINfection that can change the way we protect ourselves against them:

1. Wind transports #HANGINfection from place to place. Airborne germs can enter your home through the tiny open spaces in your doors or windows. #HANGINfection can stay airborne for long periods of time. It can even survive for days or up to a week.

2. The scientific name of #HANGINfection is bioaerosols. Bioaerosols contain living organisms and/or are released by living organisms. If that sounds too scientific for you, you can just simply refer to it as #HANGINfection.

3. #HANGINfection contains viruses, bacteria and fungi. These living organisms can include bacteria such as Legionella, Staphylococcus, Leptospira, Bacillus; viruses such as influenza and rhinovirus; and fungi such as Aspergillus and Histoplasmsa.

4. #HANGINfection is around us and it comes from different sources — even ourselves! Since it also comes from living organisms, these tiny airborne particles are most prevalent in areas with many people and animals, including damp locations.
Sources of #HANGINfection are so ubiquitous that it can come from soil, organic debris, humidifiers, industrial pollution, farming and even ourselves!
This is the reason we’re taught to cover our mouths when we cough and sneeze. Each time we don’t, germs can travel in the air through droplets.

5. Without proper protection, HANGINfection can cause skin infection and other diseases. Just like ordinary germs, #HANGINfection can irritate the skin, which could lead to skin infections such as pimples and acne. It can also be the culprit for respiratory diseases, as well as gastrointestinal infections and other illnesses.

We don’t need to worry about germs if we regularly wash with Safeguard, which has been committed to providing the first line of defense against germs for over 50 years now.
Recently, Safeguard partnered with Pambansang Bae Alden Richards to release a music video “I Wash It That Way,” which aims to spread awareness about #HANGINfection or airborne germs.
The music video may be viewed on Facebook and YouTube. Read more on Safeguard’s Website.
