Bacteria at Weddings
A wedding is one of the most bacteria-infested events in a human’s life. Before you start protesting, scientists claim that most of these single-celled microscopic organisms found at a wedding are the good guys.
Unlike the good ones, harmful bacteria can cause the following side effects:
- Abdominal Pain
- Food poisoning
- Runny nose
In fact, with a biostatistical analysis, it is possible to identify all kinds of bacteria as well as the concentration.
These are just the immediate reactions for being exposed to harmful micro-organisms at a marriage event. The more long-term problems may include meningitis, boils, and pneumonia. Not everyone who attends any such events will get an infection, but there is a high probability.
The ceremony huddles different kinds of people. People from a wide range of environments and therefore find it hard to quantify which type of bacteria tagged along with them.
Instead of hoping for the best or wasting money by doing a marriage ceremony in a sanitized bubble, you could do the following to keep the harmful microorganisms at bay.
Protect Others from Yourself
On the morning of the D-day, see your doctor and ask them to advise on how not to spread the pathogens to others. It is also good practice to wash your hands using soap after blowing your nose, but in case there is no water or soap, use hand sanitizers. Only use the kind that smells of alcohol; those are strong.
It could be fashionable to eat rare medium delicacies at an event, but these have to be prepared professionally. Otherwise, they are full of harmful pathogens waiting to poke pain in your intestines after the reception. Clean utensils should be provided for guests when they eat, and before anyone digs in, they should sanitize their hands. All aspects of the caterer should be sparling clean because serving food to the masses is the most common way to interact with harmful micro-organisms at events.
The rule of thumb to remember is that only share things with people you know their movements. Of course, you know everyone at this particular event, but do you know where they have been? For example, if one person attended an event and had a common cold, it is likely for it to have spread to more than three individuals at the end of the ceremony. So, in such a case, don’t share anything with this person and keep an eye out for them.
Weddings are supposed to be fun and full of good memories, and that is why you need to consider implementing measures that will prevent guests from being affected by harmful micro-organisms. The secret is to ensure that hygiene is top-notch, and once that’s maintained, there is nothing stopping anyone from having as much fun as possible.
