Basic personal hygiene habits

Personal hygiene is essential for protection against microbes and bacteria. People who shower every day and clean their hands frequently are protecting themselves against many diseases.

It is important to take care of our hands, mouth, feet and genitals. These are the parts of the body that have greater contact with bacteria and which need special attention.

Be careful when you sneeze or cough. Throw away used tissues and clean any items you have touched. These are small actions that improve everyone’s quality of life. By taking care of ourselves, we are taking care of others.

If you have a pet, it is important to maintain basic rules of hygiene relating to the animal and to the spaces in the house it lives in.
