Antabax | Bring Joy Back, Not Germs Campaign This Saturday 18 August 2018

Hand foot and mouth disease, also known as HFMD is most common among babies and children under the age of five. However, it is possible for older children and adults to be affected by HFMD as well[1]. Hence, it is extremely vital to stay clean whenever possible, and one of the simplest ways to do so is using the Antabax auxiliary range.

In Malaysia, this disease has affected many families and communities significantly with 35,886 HFMD incidents reported from January until July this year nationwide[2].

Antabax is introducing the Bring Joy Back, Not Germs campaigns, to educate movie goers on communicable diseases such as Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease that can impact public health.

As up to 80% of communicable diseases are spread by hands, instilling good hand and general hygiene is vital to reducing the spread of communicable diseases. However, most of us are still not practising good hand hygiene. The ‘Bring Joy Back, Not Germs’ campaign aims to help more of use experience more joy, and less germs.

This event will be held in conjunction with MBO Cinema’s Blood Donation 5.0. The campaign aims to make the serious topic of general hygiene and preventing the spread of communicable diseases easier to understand, including for children.

Sunway Medical Centre, Occupational Health Physician, Dr. Anza Elias will be sharing on communicable diseases specifically HFMD and what parents, caregivers and kids can do to reduce the spread, while nurses from MAHSA University will be demonstrating, and overseeing members of the public in the correct method of hand washing.

Kids can also look forward to meeting Germbuster, the friendly Antabax mascot, participating in quizzes and games. There are also Antabax products to be won.

Antabax has an auxiliary range that comprises of a terrific trio of pocket-sized Antabax Antibacterial Cleansing Wipes, Instant Hand Sanitizer and Hand Sanitizer Spray. These handy cleansing essentials can help reduce the risk of HFMD infecting children and infants.

But, it can also spread indirectly through infected surfaces. It is best to sanitize frequently touched items at home or shared public equipment. Among those are the children’s water bottle, door knobs or baby chairs. Wipe them down with Antabax Antibacterial Wipes, freeing it from 99.9% of germs.

With ease and for peace of mind, use Antabax Hand Sanitizer Spray onto trolley handlebars and wipe it off with a clean tissue. It is also handy when sanitizing toys, schooling equipment’s like pencil case that may have been in contact with other children. It also does wonders when used on public toilet seats and train or bus handles for daily commute.
