swine flu

i guess everyone knows about it, really scary. As of today 3 persons from british columbia, canada confirmed to have a swine flu, latest one is a lady from victoria, she got it after she went to cancun mexico a week ago.

as i am listening the news this morning, it does bother me knowing there are some people still going to mexico, yesterday 2 ladies took the early flight to cancun for vacationing, according to them its been planned and booked already and they said they will make sure they will do extra care of themselves...yeah right! honestly i dont care if they die or not as long as they wont get it and wont spread it here.....health is too precious, or i should say life itself.... but then if it isnt for them so be it.....and that should include in 1000 ways to die (i remember the tv series from spike tv).....the world health organization raises the the pandemic flu threat level to 5 now, as 5 is the second highest threat level, so it means this is serious and scary. Prevention is best than cure, this virus spreads to humans through sneezing and coughing and touching materials that has virus on it, what should we do to protect ourselves? stay out from the public, dont go to mexico for sure, grrrrr.....wash hands with soap and water frequently, use alcohol base hand sanitizer after being out in the public.....i hope if anyone is experiencing a flu-like symptoms such as fever, body aches, coughing and sneezing, pls dont go to work, avoid public area and importantly go see the doctor immediately......God bless us, i hope and pray that it will be over soon.
