Germs and bacteria plague individuals all throughout the year, though cold and flu season annually deals out its own fair share of illnesses. While germs and bacteria can affect anyone, some are more susceptible to falling ill than others. Those with certain diseases, weakened immune systems and those in particular age ranges are more prone to being impacted. The ultimate goal is to prevent getting sick in the first place and also to keep one’s own germs from spreading to others. Putting prevention techniques into practice can, however, be difficult for those facing limitations and are in need of assistance to complete daily tasks.
