Because adenoviruses cause throat as well as eye enfection, can be passed to eyes by respiratory tract. Therefore sick people should separate items such as towels, pillowcase and tissues from the rest and should not use other people’s belongings. Should always use a handkerchief when sneezing and coughing, hands should be washed frequently, should be avoided from crowded areas, rooms should be aired often, air conditioning filters should be changed and should take care of resting, sleeping and dieting.”
