How Do We Prevent this?
To prevent from getting infected easily, we need to have a habit of washing your hands with soap before eating, touching the door handle and others. We can also clean the toilet seat after using it and before using it. Do not stand on the toilet seat as it will dirty the toilet seat. Keep your lockers clean even if you are not using it. Always clean up after using the canteen table (Eating) . Avoid spilling or dropping any drinks or food when using the canteen table.
