What are germs?

Germs are microorganisms that can only be seen through a microscope and are found everywhere. Germs are viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites and spread throughair, soil, water, skin, and body. Many germs live in our bodies without causing us any harm but there are others that can make us sick with an infection.

Germs spread:

  • Person-to-person when we touch, kiss, or share food and or utensils.

  • Through the air when a person coughs or sneezes near us.

  • When we go to the bathroom and touch stool, when we change diapers, and then we touch our eyes, nose, or mouth.

  • By touching objects and surfaces that have germs, and then touching our eyes, nose, or mouth.

  • Through animals or insect bites.

  • When we are gardening or touch soil that is contaminated.

How to protect us from germs?

  • By covering our mouth and nose with a tissue or using the inside of our elbow when coughing or sneezing.

  • Washing our hands thoroughly and frequently, using plenty of soap and water. (TIP: We should scrub our hands for a minute). We should also wash our hands before, during, after preparing food and before eating. Washing our hands is important when we are caring for a sick person with colds, vomiting and or diarrhea or treating a wound. We should also wash our hands when we use the toilet, change diapers, sneeze, as well as, after feeding or playing with a pet and after throwing away the garbage.

  • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

  • Stay at home if we are sick.

  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
