簡單的防護措施可以幫您有效預防包括流感、RSV及COVID-19在內的冬季病毒

撰稿:Yasuko Fukuda,醫學博士 隨著目前流感、呼吸道合胞病毒(RSV)及COVID-19在加州的流行,各個家庭都採取防護措施來在這個冬季保持健康是很重要的,尤其是當我們在室內聚集時,比如購物及節日歡慶。 呼吸道感染的人數在上升,並且我們仍然看到病人們被送往急救室。據公共衛生官員透露,在加州至少有兩名不到五歲的兒童同因RSV而死亡。這真的令人痛心。我們需要記住, COVID-19、RSV及流感的嚴重併發症很容易傷害年幼的孩子們,尤其是當他們有基礎疾病時或是早產兒。隨著COVID-19感染數目繼續在加州上升,所有年齡階段的家庭成員都保持警惕並採取簡單易行卻有效的防護措施來預防冬季病毒是十分重要的。正好趕在節日前,二價疫苗現在可供滿6個月的嬰幼兒接種了,這就意味著您全家人就都可以接種升級版疫苗。 這樣五個建議可以幫助您為自己及他人預防嚴重病症及住院: 接種疫苗、加強劑(並接受治療)—— 流感和COVID-19疫苗仍然是您預防嚴重病症及死亡的最有效的武器。並且,您可以同時接種它們。如果您COVID-19檢測呈陽性,請立即與您的醫生或檢測治療站聯繫,並時接種治療。我們推薦大部分成年人和所有年滿12歲並出現某些症狀及疾病者去接受COVID-19治療,而且一有症狀就開始治療是最有效的。如果生病了就待在家中 —— 如果您覺得生病了,待在家中是至關重要的。避免與他人近距離接觸以保護他們,並充分利用這段時間來休息恢復。這在患諸如流感、RSV及COVID-19等呼吸道疾病時是尤其重要,因為它們可能發展成重症。戴口罩 —— 在公共室內場所佩戴口罩是限制病菌傳播的好方法。為了讓口罩最大限度的發揮作用,請選擇貼合面部且過濾性好的。基本准側是:外科口罩很好、KN95或KN94口罩更好,N95口罩最好。洗手 ——勤用肥皂和溫水洗手至少二十秒。這是一個預防生病的簡單方法。咳嗽或打噴嚏時遮住 —— 病菌可以傳播很遠!請記住在咳嗽或打噴嚏時用手肘、手臂或一次性紙巾遮住。 雖然這些建議看似簡單,但是它們加起來可以在對影響咱們州的所有冬季病毒起到強有力的防禦作用,並且可以幫助您和您的親人預防嚴重病症且遠離急救室。 當天氣轉冷,我們都在室內與家人歡聚之時,請務必盡己所能來預防這些冬季病毒。通過採取上述簡單的防護,您就有能力來降低自己被暴露於病毒中的幾率。在這個冬季保持健康,您才能與自己的親人一起歡度好時光。 獲取更多有關流感的訊息,請訪問加州公共衛生部流感資源網頁。查找附近的流感或COVID-19疫苗接種點,請訪問My Turn – 加利福尼亞COVID-19疫苗預約與通知。
