Swine Flu

So this Swine Flu business is getting pretty serious.

Mexico is shutting down businesses for the next 5 days. Mexico is urging it's citizens to stay at home. Apparently home is the most safe place to be right now.

Swine flu has symptoms nearly identical to regular flu — fever, cough and sore throat — and spreads like regular flu, through tiny particles in the air, when people cough or sneeze. People with flu symptoms are advised to stay at home, wash their hands and cover their sneezes.

Many countries are taking drastic measures in protecting it's people. Egypt slaughtered 300,000 pigs and banned kissing.

There has been 109 cases in the United States and 1 death.

This is some serious business. I am going to start washing my hands every hour and pretty much not touching my face. I advice everyone else to do the same.

XOXO
