Flu season is upon us! Each year the United States experiences epidemics of seasonal flu which is most common during the fall and winter months. Influenza activity typically commences in October and November and peaks between December and March but can last as late as May. Currently, influenza activity is on the rise in the United States and according to the CDC, “Outpatient visits for influenza-like- illness are above the national baseline.” This activity is expected to further increase in the ensuing weeks.

A majority of experts believe that flu viruses spread primarily by droplets made when people who are already infected cough, sneeze, or talk. These droplets can then land in the mouths or noses of people in the immediate area. Although less common, people may also contract the flu by touching a surface or object that already has the flu virus on it and then touching their own mouth, eyes, or nose.

However, there is also a possibility that an individual can pass on the flu before even being aware that he or she is infected. In fact, most healthy adults can begin to infect others beginning one day prior to developing symptoms and as long as up to five to seven days after becoming sick. Although the onset of symptoms can range depending on an individual’s immune system, the time from when an individual is exposed to the flu virus to when symptoms begin to manifest typically ranges from one to four days, with an average of about two days. People should be on the look-out for signs and symptoms of the flu which include:

-Fever (feverish/chills)

-Cough

-Sore Throat

-Runny or stuffy nose

-Muscle/body aches

-Headaches

-Fatigue

-Vomiting and diarrhea

“Nano Environmental Solutions’ Nanostatic process eliminates bacteria and viruses across all spectrums although through different approaches.”

Bacteria is eradicated through oxidation in which five electrons are extracted from the amino acid of the microbial cell. Without electrons, the amino acid is altered and can no longer build protein required to sustain the cell wall. In the absence of protein, the cellular walls deteriorate and the harmful organisms within perish. Likewise, viruses are eliminated by reacting to peptone. In the course of the reaction, the protein formation of the virus is altered and prevented, thereby wiping out the virus.

However, what really sets NES apart from other methods is our ability to neutralize both active and non-active microorganisms which ultimately prevents mutation and resistance-building to pharmaceuticals. Nano Environmental Solutions’ hospital grade disinfectant coupled with its touchless application process possesses the ability to completely eradicate bacteria and viruses from one’s home and workplace, putting a screeching halt to cross-contamination and thereby drastically reducing the number of school and work absences due to illness as well as flu-related hospitalizations.
