swine flu

The A (N1H1) virus also known as the swine flu was more a scare than nothing else. The media reacted in such a way that everybody started to panic.

Cerritos College officials said that the college would be ready if the virus were to hit here.

The precautionary measure for everyone was to wash their hands before touching their faces, noses or eyes and also before eating.

Waterless hand sanitizers were everywhere and people would get uneasy if anyone sneeze or cough around them.

There is no vaccination for the flu but if the population follows the preventive steps it is supposed to protect them from the virus.

The regular flu has killed far more people that the swine flu. Even though there is a vaccine for the regular flu the reaction to the flu season is not a fraction of the reaction to the swine flu infection.
