Swine flu epidemic began with the coming cold season. Can we say that there is a certain "season" of swine flu? Not yet proven, but found a combination of factors: – In winter, people spend most of their time indoors, which facilitates the spread of viruses. In cold weather, air drier, it dries the nasal passages, which promotes penetration of the virus into the body. David Zaslav describes an additional similar source. – In cold weather the virus can stay longer on different surfaces. – It is proved that the virus is easily spread in the air in cold weather, but infected people are also longer are carriers of germs during the cold season. – According to the Research, swine flu virus has a coating that is thicker in cold environments, and in the heat becomes thinner. But whatever the reason, it is obvious that the season is to distribute any kind of flu – it is always winter (it is and proves that, in the northern and southern hemispheres, the epidemic begins in opposite seasons).
If the cold and dry weather is contributing to the spread of influenza, the maintenance of cool homes and offices during the summer may contribute to survival and spread of viruses, as air conditioners not only cool, but also dried the air. If weather permits, during the summer is better for the opportunity to open a window, rather than the air conditioner. If the air conditioner is necessary, then set the temperature of 25 – 26 instead of 21 – 22 . This will help you protect yourself from viruses, as well as reduce energy costs.
