Some Useful Info on A(H1N1)

Posted by austenfan at 6/08/2009 07:31:00 PM
As we probably all know, the opening of classes (college) was moved to June 16. I imagine this caused a lot of whooping and ecstatic cries from fellow students. haha. Strangely (very much so) enough, I wasn't quite thrilled about it. Yep. Strange.

Taking aside that bout of weirdness, I too am pretty scared of catching the A(H1N1) virus. And as usual, when I get really anxious about something, I do what I always do (if possible) and looked it up on the net. :)

In case you're still in the dark when it comes to A(H1N1), here are some helpful facts:

  • Avoid touching your nose and mouth.
  • Avoid crowds as well.
  • Make sure to keep your hands thoroughly clean ALWAYS (well, as much as you can).
  • You won't be able to tell the difference between seasonal flu and A(H1N1) unless you get medical help (so if you're experiencing fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, headache and body ache, I think it's best to get medical assistance immediately!).
And here's a cute poster from the Singapore Polytechnic site:

Let's all stay safe, 'kay? :)
