As citizens search to protect themselves from the swine flu virus, one of the best protections may actually be right under our nose. Bringing help to the airlines and general public during this crisis
New Port Richey, FL (PRWEB) May 2, 2009 -- With the world facing the ramifications of the spread of the swine flu virus/ H1N1, politicians, governments and citizens are mobilizing to protect themselves by wearing face masks, canceling trips and staying away from crowds.
The H1N1 or swine flu virus, like all flu viruses, is spread by inhalation. Donning face masks is the most obvious form of protection from transmission of viruses, and face mask sales are going thorough the roof. But face masks are not sealed, and air that gets around the side of the mask can be inhaled.
An additional defense against inhaled viruses is already available. Cleanose® is a nasal dust cover made of 100% breathable non-latex, skin-safe material designed to help protect against the inhalation of airborne particles into nasal passages.
Cleanose is a sealable nose filter that is simple to apply, safe and discrete. Since the filter is sealed around your nasal opening, no unfiltered air can be inhaled as long as you breathe thorough your nose. The wearer can still exhale and speak normally through the mouth, as long as all air is inhaled through the nose.
Wearing Cleanose covers over the nasal openings can greatly reduce respiratory exposure to viruses, germs, influenza, colds, bacteria, dust, pollen, pollutants, contaminants, secondhand smoke and inhaled carcinogens.
The CDC recommends a combined approach to help decrease the likelihood of transmission of the current swine flu virus, including frequent hand washing, covering coughs, and having ill persons stay home (except to seek medical care) and minimize contact with others.
Swine flu is not transmitted by food, therefor
