Exclamation Swine Flu

Hi. Just to let you all know that with school, college, uni's and work starting again that the risk of Swine Flu is even bigger this time round. They may have reported on the news that less people are catching it but the risk is still there! You see many different people everyday so you can never be certain that you won't catch it. Just be careful!

If you do catch it, you'll notice through these symptoms: Chills, Loss of Appetite, Diarrhoea, etc. Just make sure you don't go to the doctor as this can spread the flu! Stay at home and call the doctor.

For now, to avoid getting Swine Flu, I am sure you know that you must avoid passing things around like a cigarette so germs don't get into you, and make sure you wash your hands with soap thoroughly. But you can also keep a packet of tissues handy and maybe some hand sanitizer, in case you do touch something where germs could have possibly reached you.



So has anyone had the unfortunate experience of having to deal with Swine Flu? Let's talk?

Re: Swine Flu

Nice advice 6fat!
I would also like to add that if one needs to cough, one should cough into the crook of their arm, rather than into a tissue or into their own hands. Less germ-spread that way.
