People with lung conditions are more prone to get infected and may land up in a worsened condition.
HOW CAN WE AVOID INFECTIONS?
There are several things you can do to protect yourself:
Wash your hands often with soap and water. Alcohol-based cleaners are a good substitute
Avoid public places and crowded areas during the cold and flu season.
Good oral hygiene can protect you from the germs in your mouth leading to infections
Get vaccinated regularly as per your prescription
If you get sick, protect the people around you by maintaining distance. Stay home from work until you're feeling better
Include a healthy diet, rich in antioxidants & vitamin C rich foods
Indoor pollutants should be minimised, which include Incense sticks, aromatic defuses, etc.
