WEBVTT JASON: WELCOME BACK. WE BACK WITH AMANDA SHOEMATE, AN EPIDEMIOLOGIST WITH THE OKLAHOMA STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH. TALKING ABOUT THE FLU IN OKLAHOMA, WHERE ARE YOU REGIONAL? Which parts of the state see the most cases? >> IN INTENSITY, IN AN EXTENT OF 1 TO 10, WE ARE ABOUT FOUR. We only have a couple of regions that see increased inflation-like disease activity. Jason: In which regions are there such? >> THE NORTH-EAST REGION. We typically see that every year. Jason: When it comes to the rest of the country, what do we see in numbers, distributed? >> IT IS THE BASELINE NATIONAL. IT ENCOURAGES THAT WE CAN CONTINUE TO SEE TO SEE ONE SEASON. Nothing like last year. JASON: ANY CONNECTION BETWEEN FLU AND ALLERGIES? ALLERGIES WERE CRAZED FROM THE YEAR. ANY CONNECTION BETWEEN THE TWO? >> NOT NECESSARILY A CONNECTION. NOW WE FIND THAT WE VIEW MANY CHALLENGES, OTHER RESPONSES, THE COMMON COLD, AND THE WINTERS CAN CIRCULATE ONLY MUCH. Really the best is the good hygiene of the hands. THAT TREATED MANY STUFF. You will avoid many diseases by putting this harmful hygiene into practice. JASON: THAT DOES NOT AWARD YOUR HANDS TO FIVE SECONDS. WHAT ARE THE BEST PRACTICES WHEN IT CAN PREVENT THE DISTRACTION OF DISEASE? >> You want to use the time to thoroughly clean your hands, 20 seconds, with soapy water and warm water. Make sure to get all these areas on your hands. Towel off. USE THIS CLOTH TO OPEN THE BATHROOM DOOR TO ENSURE NO LESS GERMS IN YOUR HAND. THEN, IF YOU HAVE NO SOAPS AND WATER AVAILABLE, THIS SANITIZER ON ALCOHOL BASE IS A GOOD BACKUP. JASON: EVEN HOW TO BIT YOUR MOUTH. >> PRACTICAL BREATHING ETIQUETTE, YOUR HIP WHEN YOU ARE SICK. ULTIMATE, STAY AT HOME IF YOU DO NOT FEEL GOOD. YOU DO NOT WANT TO SPREAD THINGS TO OTHERS. With the FLU, you can start sprinkling before you start showing signs and symptoms.

BUT THE FLU-VACCINE, BECAUSE THE NATURE OF THE VIRUS CHANGES SOON FROM SEASON TO SEASON, THE VACCINE WILL NOT 100% PROTECT YOU. MANY PEOPLE HAVE THE MISFITS – MISPERCEPTION THAT THEY CAN NOT RECEIVE THE FLU WHEN THEY RECEIVE THE VACCINATE. But it is a great job to reduce the duration of the disease, and also reduces the severity of the disease. SO YOU MUST NOT BE FOUND FOR THE FLU. JASON: SO YOU CAN STILL GET THE FLUTE IF YOU WILL RECEIVE THE FLU SHOT, BUT BUT THE SEVERITY DOES NOT LOSE, DURING NOT. >> AVERAGE OVER 40% TO 60% EFFECTIVE EVERY YEAR.
