THIS SESSION IS DESIGNED TO

EDUCATE YOU

NOT INTIMIDATE YOU

AFTER ALL….

YOU’VE SURVIVED THIS LONG!!


Pandemics germs disinfection

In the 20th century, the largest number of people in the US died:a) from AIDSb) in WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnamc) in the 1918 influenza pandemic


Annual influenza statistics in canada

Pandemic2

PANDEMIC!

The scenario sends shivers down disease specialists' spines:

Indonesia:Taxi driver develops a fever & dies

  • His wife grows ill & dies; so do his children

  • Victims of H5N1 influenza

    Within 10 days:Many of his passengers also die

  • Virus found an efficient way to spread in humans

  • Spread by nasal & mouth secretions


Pandemic3

PANDEMIC!

One unlucky passenger: a French businessman

First leg – Jakarta - Singapore:

Businessmaninfects:

  • Australian grandmother– sat next to him at airport

  • Swedish stewardess & Canadian coupleon plane.

    Second Leg – Singapore to Paris:

    He meets a:

  • Brazilian man when changing planes

  • Greek family on the plane

  • Spanish steward & Italian Stewardess


Pandemic4

PANDEMIC!

All make it home

All die within days

  • First,they each pass it on to dozens of people

  • Beginning of a frightening chain of infections

    Welcome to the global flu pandemic!


Pandemic5

PANDEMIC!

A influenza pandemic struck today:

  • borders close (not effective!)

  • global economy shut down

  • international vaccine supplies & health-care systems overwhelmed

  • panic reigns


In the news1

In the News

OTTAWA - Jan. 28, 2005Dr. Earl Brown, an Ottawa viral geneticist,says Canada may not be as prepared for a flu pandemic as the WHO thinks it is.

  • Could kill thousands

  • Canada’s pandemic plan warns that

  • between 11,000 and 58,000 could die

  • 10.6 million Canadians could fall ill

“A clear strategy is a good start, but Canadians would be virtually defenseless if a pandemic were to strike” , says Dr. Brown.


Flu notes

Flu Notes

  • Avian flu - death/cases rate about 50%

  • If seasonal influenza combines with H5N1

    • new strain spread easily & rapidly among humans

    • little or no immunity

  • Direct contact - sneezing or coughing - droplets

  • Indirect contact – shaking hands or touching contaminated surfaces


Human to human

Human to Human?

JAKARTA, Indonesia –

The U.N. health agency described the deaths of six Indonesian family members from bird flu as the most important development in the spread of the virus since 2003, saying the size of the cluster and difficulties in determining the source were worrying.

Who periods phases

WHO periods & phases


Pandemic certainties

Pandemic Certainties

  • It is coming

  • Very unlikely a vaccine until first wave past

  • Will not be able to control transmission

  • Will overwhelm our health care system

  • As with other disasters, good planning can provide effective mitigation


Pandemic uncertainties

Pandemic Uncertainties

  • When will it happen?

  • How bad is it going to be? How many people will die?

  • How long will it take from when we know it is starting until people start to get sick?


What will it be like when it hits

What will it be like when it hits?

  • First wave last 6-9 weeks

  • 35-40% of people will be ill

    • Proportion of people needing hospital care/dying depends on virulence of strain

  • During peak (3 weeks), absenteeism = 25-35%

  • If disease is severe: borders will close, schools/public places will close


Pandemics germs disinfection

What is the role of good hygiene practices in prevention & containment of the disease?

  • Extremely important safety measure to prevent infection (Bio-security)

    Should people get flu shots?

  • Personal decision everyone must make every year

  • Guidance of local health authorities should be followed

  • Different vaccines will become available


Pandemics germs disinfection

Which disinfectant should I use against avian influenza?

  • Soapy water & detergents are first choice for many items!!

    • Disinfectant cleaner also good

  • Avian influenza virus

    • Simpler to destroy than many viruses

    • Very sensitive to detergents

      • Destroys fat-containing outer layer of virus

      • Destroys ability to infect


Stop the spread of germs

Stop the Spread of Germs

  • STAY CURRENT WITH LATEST DEVELOPMENTS

  • Reducing spread of germs essential to maintaining good health

    • Proper hygiene + good sanitation = 25% less absenteeism


Pandemics germs disinfection

Stop the Spread of Germs

ABSOLUTE NECESSITY

  • PROPER CLEANING PROCEDURES

    • Several different approaches

  • USE & UNDERSTAND DISINFECTANTS

    • Importance of dilution

    • Prevention of cross contamination


  • Pandemics germs disinfection

    Stop the Spread of Germs

    ABSOLUTE NECESSITY

    • NOT the TERMINOLOGY

      • Why worry about pronouncing words?

  • SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE

    • Aware of basics

    YOU

    ARE CRITICAL

    TO PREVENTING THE SPREAD

    OF DISEASE!


    Pandemics germs disinfection

    BASIC

    BACTERIA

    KNOWLEDGE

    for our

    everyday world


    Pandemics germs disinfection

    From an article on WebMD….

    If you squirm at the thought of creepy germs ….. spend as little time as possible in restrooms of your workplace, not to mention those in restaurants, hotels & gas stations...


    Pandemics germs disinfection

    Dare to venture into a public bathroom?

    Do you…

    Push open with your elbows?

    Flush with your shoe?

    Crouch precariously above the toilet seat?

    64% of us are afraid to touch anything; catching germs!


    Pandemics germs disinfection

    SPREADING DISEASE!

    58%

    of us

    don’t wash our hands

    after using washroom facilities!


    Pandemics germs disinfection

    ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY????

    64% of us

    Say

    don’t wash our hands unless

    ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY!


    Pandemics germs disinfection

    PERCEPTION OR REALITY?

    • 92%feltdirty washroom negative image of whole facility

    • 82% indicated “FOUL ODOURS” biggest turn off

    • 75% thought odours easy to eliminate

      • Couldn’t understand why staff could NOT get rid of them


    A reason to be worried

    A REASON TO BE WORRIED!

    A study of

    25 Quick Serve Restaurant washrooms

    - tested for coli form bacteria (E-coli) only


    What does this mean to me a little knowledge about germs will help

    YOU CAN’T KILL MORE THAN 100%!

    We spend $$$$$$ developing correct dilution ratio for:

    • DETERGENCY

    • INFECTION CONTROL


    Pandemics germs disinfection

    WHY MIX STRONGER?

    • If we agree – you cannot kill more than 100%

      Stronger dilutions project

      a NEGATIVE image of you!

    • White film, streaks, sticky residue

      • Bacteria thrive in these conditions

      • Dirt magnet

  • Poor indoor air quality

  • Facility looks un-cleaned

    THE SAME THING!


    Pandemics germs disinfection

    DISINFECTING vs. SANITIZING

    DISINFECT:

    • Registered product

    • Moist 5-10 minutes

    • Kills 99.999 % of STATED PATHOGENS

      SANITIZE:

    • Moist for 60 seconds

    • Kills 99.99 % of germs


    Pandemics germs disinfection

    EXTREMELY IMPORTANT:

    PREVENT CROSS CONTAMINATION

    • Studies: 30-40% of antibiotic resistant infections spread from hands of cleaning staff

    • SARS virus spread often caused by poor cleaning practices & personal hygiene
