Swine flu is moving around the world at a rapid pace. What was just an outbreak in Mexico will potentially be global in a week. There are things we can do to limit the damage, but it will have to be done quickly. Travel will have to be limited, events will have to be cancelled, and the infected will have to be quarantined.
The CDC has a lot of good information on how to stop the spread of germs. Most of the steps are common sense, but they are worth listing:
- Avoid contact
- Stay at home if you are sick
- Cover mouth and nose when sneezing
- Wash your hands
- Don't touch your eyes, nose, or mouth
We'll keep an eye on this but it is going to worse before it gets better. So for the next week or so, if you can...stay inside and stay healthy. [Permalink]- swine Flu
