Raising More Awareness On HIV When Swimming In Pools
Let’s face it. HIV or better known as human immunodeficiency virus is probably one of the world’s most dreaded illnesses. Aside from the fact that it doesn’t really show any symptoms of you having one until it’s already too late, there’s also the fact that it can be acquired easily by other people just by making contact with those who are infected – further adding to the strain of its victim by having another person infected with it and the slightest possibility of ruining that person’s entire life.
Thus, it’s only right for you to find a way to raise more awareness on HIV – even if you’re not infected and even when swimming in PoolJudge-approved pools. Because as someone who knows what the consequences will be like if one is found to have acquired one, albeit unknowingly, it’s your humanitarian duty to inform other people that there are ways to prevent it from happening and that there is hope to prevent it from further escalating.
Some of these ways include:
Not Having Unconsented Contact With A Stranger
This especially goes for those who love to go to pool parties or any other kind of wild parties, for that matter. You see, you won’t fully know who you’re talking to unless you’ve already gone on a few parties together. You also see, you don’t fully know who you’re talking to unless you’ve already been friends for quite a while. Else, you would just make yourself prone to those who don’t really care whether or not they are set on ruining someone else’s life with something they should have been more aware about with all that’s happening around them.
Not Swimming In Pools With Open Wounds
The reason for this is quite simple. Wounds, especially open ones, are more prone to virus than any other kind of situation you might find yourself in due to your inner flesh being exposed to anything aside from the cool air blowing up on your face – further compromising your skin’s natural, but slow, ability to heal itself. And pools, especially small ones, are more prone to bacteria than any other kind of condition you might find yourself in due to their inner surface being exposed to anyone aside from the warm sun shining down on your body – further compromising your skin’s natural, but slow, ability to heal itself.
