A Confirmed Case of Human Infection with Avian Influenza A(H7N9) virus
 
農曆年假後,同學仍需提高預防禽流感及其他呼吸道疾病的警覺性,因此請同學上學前先量度體溫,如有發燒,請立即求診,並留在家中休息。
 

預防禽流感及其他呼吸道疾病,請同學或職員經常注意手部衛生和避免觸摸口、鼻、眼睛,及特別是到受影響地區旅遊時,避免到訪活禽市場或接觸家禽。其他預防措施包括:

1.應避免接觸家禽、雀鳥、動物或其糞便;
2.如曾接觸家禽、雀鳥、動物或其糞便,要立刻用潔手液和清水徹底洗手;
3.增強身體抵抗力及實踐健康生活。均衡飲食、適量運動、充足休息,減輕壓力和避免吸煙,都是增強抵抗力的方法;
4.進食家禽肉類和蛋前應徹底煮熟;
5.保持良好的環境衛生;
6.確保室內空氣流通;
7.如身體不適,應避免前往人多擠迫、空氣流通情況欠佳的公眾地方;
8.最少每日一次用適當的消毒劑清潔及消毒經常接觸的表面、傢俬物品、玩具、共用物品和地面(非金屬表面可把 1 份家用漂白水與 99 份清水混和清潔消毒,待乾後,用水清洗並抹乾,金屬表面即可用 70% 酒精清潔消毒)。

學童或職員如近期曾接觸家禽或到訪禽流感受影響地區的活禽市場,若出現流感樣病徵時,應佩戴口罩,並立即求診,和告訴醫生最近曾到訪的地方。受影響的學童或職員應避免回到學校。如欲得到更多有關禽流感的資料,可瀏覽衛生防護中心網頁(http://www.chp.gov.hk/tc/view_content/24244.html)。
