Part 6 of 8- Guess the germ, virus or bacteria!
How have you done on the other 5 guesses?  Were you able to correctly guess the answer?  If not, go back to the drawing board and practice up with some Glo Germ to gain "Master of Infection Control" status!  

There are many games and activities that can be added to this infection control game.  The most important part is having a lesson that intrigues students and employees, teaches them valuable health habits and increases their chances for better health.

If you would like more information on how Glogerm can help your organization then please contact us.  We are happy to help you assess your audience/participants and the lessons you would like to teach.

Although Glo Germ is often associated with hand hygiene, it can do a lot more than teach hand washing!  Get creative and you will be surprised the opportunities that will come by inserting simulation germs into your lessons.  Anyway, here is the next guessing part.  Good luck!

Who Am I? #6 

Guess the germ, bacteria or illness by reading the characteristics below.  Guess one of the listed possible answers.  Check your answer at the very bottom of this page!

About Me: 

I am a bacterial disease. I can affect any organ of the body, but I most often affect the respiratory tract. I am not spread by kissing or shared items (clothes, utensils, drinking cups, etc.). I am spread by the cough I produce. The particles that are coughed into the air may be suspended for hours or until another person breathes them in.

What I do: 

The most common sign of me is a cough, often lasting for weeks with blood in the mucous. I may cause chest pain, fever, weakness, loss of appetite, and night sweating. I show a raised and red area when my victims test positive for me.

How to Stop Me: 

General precautions for infection control should be followed to deter me from spreading from person to person. Cough hygiene is essential. It is important to alert all close people to the infected person when I am detected. The infected person should see a doctor and follow all medication recommendations. Generally, infected persons may return to work or school after 2 weeks of treatment.
