  1. A simple strategy to protect you from coronavvirus, influenza and other respiratory infections.
    Yes, the T Zone awareness is a 10 on a scale of 1-10 for TRUE respiratory infection prevention. As you all are now talking about ANY surface you touch is a potential source, now you can empower people “how to protect themselves” when there is no soap and water, wipes or sanitizer.

    For 33 years of Family Medicine I have come been teaching patients to understand that this simple hand hygiene behavior (Do Not Touch the T Zone) is a most critical solution for an individual’s personal health. As your hands are clean only until you touch the next surface. BUT if you NEVER touch your T Zone it doesn’t matter how many surfaces you touch.

    I have seen MANY patients benefit once they “understood” the mechanism.

    There continues to be a lack of understanding of the mucous membranes (eyes, nose and mouth = T Zone)! The ONLY portal of entry into the human body for ALL respiratory infections!

    CDC doesn’t talk about the T Zone, neither does HHS or local Public Health departments! So how can we expect the public to understand?? Or to improve the result.

    Please share this pearl of wisdom and science!!
