Practise good personal hygiene Press Statement by Penang Gerakan Wanita Chief Ng Siew Lai

While the authorities are engrossed with taking steps to prevent the spread of the H1N1 influenza in the country, the public must practice good personal hygiene, said Penang Gerakan Wanita chief Ng Siew Lai.

She said for example one should use handkerchief or tissue paper if one had to sneeze in a public place, as sneezing would cause the spread of diseases.

“We should also wash our hands after going to the toilets or before eating,” she said, adding that the people should try to avoid going to crowded places.

“If you have symptoms like fever, running nose, cough and body ache, especially when you just returned from a country which has the flu outbreak, please see a doctor,” she said.

Ng said those who have contacts with the disease (H1N1 flu) must go to hospital for treatment and be quarantined, so as to get proper medical care and minimise the risk of spreading.
