How to prevent avian flu infection?

1. Do not touch poultry or its excrement. Once we touch it by accident, we must wash hands with soap immediately.
2. Do not eat raw poultry or poultry products (including eggs or related products, such as duck blood).
3. If not necessary or without protection, do not go to live poultry slaughterhouses, poultry farms, or live poultry markets.
4. Those who work in the poultry industry must be equipped with personal protection accessories during the process, and get cleaned and disinfected after work.
5. Develop good habits for personal hygiene, balanced diets, proper exercise and rest to keep a healthy body.
6. If people who have close contact with birds or have been to the affected areas are suffering from fever, sore throat, coughs, or conjunctivitis, please wear a mask to take medical treatment and sample collection. Tell the doctor about your contact history, work contents, and travel experiences.
