So WHO has declared a novel flu (swine flu) pandemic, but this doesn't mean you're going to start suddenly getting sick. Simple things to take care of yourselves to prevent swine flu apply just as they do for the flu.
Since it's also flu season in a lot of countries, please do, with the permission of your general practitioner, get your flu shots, wash hands with soap and water frequently, and cover your mouth when you cough and/or sneeze. Ya know, the basics.
I include an article on the WHO announcement below. Take care everyone!http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/un_un_swine_flu
