How to reduce my chances of catching a cold?
Common cold, also known as the flu, is usually caused by various strains of viral organisms such as the Influenza A & B, Parainfluenza, Respiratory Syncytial virus etc.
It is usually transmitted via air droplets when infected individuals sneeze or cough. Hence, if you happen to be in close contact with these individuals, do remember to cover your nose and mouth, to minimize your chances of getting transmitted with the virus.
