Be Proactive About Swine Flu
One of the reasons that the flu spreads more quickly than a disease like SARS, and the level has been raised from a level 3 (containment) to a level 4 (mitigation) is because the flu virus is often contagious before the carrier shows any symptoms. Because of this it is virtually impossible to use containment measure in battling the flu virus. The best bet is to assume that anyone and everyone could have the flu, and use proactive measures such as limiting proximity, using hand washing and basic sanitation procedures, and not touching your face. This will help limit the spread of the virus proactively.
