How has H1N1 impacted your life?
WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE!
...one day, but I don't think this virus is going to get us all yet.
H1N1 Virus (Swine Flu) is here, and perhaps it's here to stay, but we shouldn't panic. I am definitely concerned, but now that I've done my research I am not freaking out any more!
I think many of us are quite scared, so I've put together three crucial facts about this "imminent pandemic."
- The virus is treatable
- There are enough drugs
- You can protect yourself
The World Health Organization seems to have a lot of confidence in the ability of our governments to protect us and keep us healthy, and I share this confidence.
*Update: Mexico is planning to shut down part of its economy (non-essential government offices, cinemas, restaurants) in order to quell the spread of the virus. Important steps are being taken!
