Hidden enemies!

Some diseases are contagious precisely because they are transmitted by bodily contact with an infected persons or objects. One of the objects we come into contact very often but are not very aware of the danger they pose are the shopping trolleys. There are hidden enemies lurking in these trolleys which we are not fully aware!

When you go shopping the next time, be alert of the danger you are encountering in one of the normal acts you usually perform. This health warning seems to come from the Dubai government, it’s pertinent that’s why I post it here to share with my readers.

The simple and usual act  of getting a trolley and pushing it around poses the risk of us contacting illnesses. When this is highlighted to us we can see the connection but many a times we forget to take precaution. After looking at the slides you will get the full picture.

Share the message with as many of your friends as possible. Parents of small children should take extra care. Cleaning their children’s hands after they have sat on the carts should be encouraged.  The simple act of wiping the handles of these car ts also helps prevent the children coming into contact with many contagious germs.

Shopping malls should be more civic conscious, they can help contain the spread of contagious diseases by having their shopping-carts sterilized occasionally.  They can put warning signs around the malls to warn of  the customers of the danger and to remind them to wipe the handles of the carts. They should adopt this as part of their social responsibilities. Maybe governments around the world  should enforce this on them.

Come visit again, thank you.
