Avoid contact with birds- To avoid the danger of H5N1 virus, we should not come in direct contact with birds. After the birds of the domestic poultry farm become infected, the chances of spreading it among humans increases greatly. This disease can also spread to humans through secretions from birds’ feces, saliva, nose-mouth or eyes.
Cleanliness – Clean the tanks, railings or pijars placed on the roof with detergent. Carefully clean feathers or waste spread on bird feces or related places Do not clothe birds with open arms, keep a certain distance from them. A bird infected with H5N1 can release the virus through feces or saliva for about 10 days.
Raw meat – do not touch the surface – after buying chicken from the shop, while washing it, definitely wear gloves on hands and mouth. Raw meat or egg can also infect a human being. You can also get vulnerable to the virus through a corrupted surface. So avoid touching anything or surface on poultry farms or shops. After touching anything, immediately sanitize the hands.
Cook the chicken at a temperature of around 100 degrees Celsius. Do not make the mistake of eating raw meat or egg. According to health experts, this virus is sensitive to heat and is destroyed in cooking temperature. Raw meat or eggs should be kept separate from other food items.
Keep these things in mind as well – stay away from the people working in the poultry farm and avoid going to the affected areas. Do not go close to healthcare workers. Keep a certain distance from any infected person in the house. Avoid going to the open air market and take special care of things like hygiene-handwash.
