How to beat the ‘chill out’ flu in Australia

With temperatures rising and schools closing, Australian doctors are urging people to remain indoors as the country braces for another pandemic.

Key points:The Australian Department of Health is warning people to stay indoors as temperatures rise to cope with the virus”It’s very important to get a cold shower, a bath and wear long pants, pants and a sweater to help you cool down”Dr Mark Lillis, director of the department of infectious diseases at the University of Melbourne, said the virus had spread rapidly across Australia.

“The virus has already affected Australia.

People are not coming home in the morning or in the afternoon, and they’re not coming out at all,” Dr Lillishis said.”

People need to get away from their home, their workplace, their family and to stay home as much as possible.”

Dr Lilli said it was important for people to be in bed at least four hours before they were to be admitted to hospital, and for those who had been in contact with the person to remain there as long as possible.

“We know that when we get an outbreak, it usually occurs over a period of about a week, so you have to be very careful in that period,” he said.

Dr Lellis said people should also consider wearing a face mask.

“That’s probably the first thing you should be doing, especially if you have a history of infection, as we’ve got a number of cases in Sydney and Melbourne,” he told AAP.

“If you’re not wearing a mask, you’re more likely to spread the virus than if you’re wearing a full face mask.”

Dr Scott Macdonald, director for the Australian Centre for Influenza Research at Monash University, said many Australians were being urged to stay at home, but that some people had not been advised.

“It does look like people are taking their own advice from their GP or from their local doctor,” he explained.

“Some people are getting a bit of a cold shoulder and they are not thinking clearly and they may not be following the advice.”

He said the number of people who were in quarantine had increased since the start of the pandemic, and the Australian public needed to be warned.

“There’s a lot of people in quarantine and there’s a good amount of people getting the flu and then we also have a significant number of Australians who have not been exposed, who haven’t tested positive for the virus and have not yet got tested,” Dr Macdonald said.
