Say No to H1N1!

Arrrgghh.. I was busying myself updating my blog when i heard that one of the schools in Shah Alam, where mummy is staying right now is currently closing.. It is due to this H1N1 thingy that is really dangerous and can cause death! Section 9 secondary school isn't that far from Achik Liha's house at all.. Ya Allah, please keep us all safe from this dangerous disease.. Mummy is really worried about us and the whole family, that i pray real hard for our health and safetiness..

Some people might not really care about all this.. But as a person,i think it is is my responsibility too, to ensure that people are aware about this killer disease.. These are my findings:

Influenza A virus subtype H1N1:

It is also known as A(H1N1), is a subtype of influenzavirus A and the most common cause of influenza (flu) in humans. Some strains of H1N1 are endemic in humans and cause a small fraction of all influenza-like illness and a large fraction of all seasonal influenza. H1N1 strains caused roughly half of all human flu infections in 2006.[1] Other strains of H1N1 are endemic in pigs (swine influenza) and in birds (avian influenza).

In June 2009, WHO declared that flu due to a new strain of swine-origin H1N1 was responsible for the
2009 flu pandemic. This strain is commonly called "swine flu".

What You Can Do to Stay Healthy:

O Influenza is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through coughing or sneezing of infected people.
O Take everyday actions to stay healthy.
O Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
O Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hands cleaners are also effective.
O Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.
O Stay home if you get sick. It is recommended that you stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.
O Follow public health advice regarding school closures, avoiding crowds and other social distancing measures.
O Find healthy ways to deal with stress and anxiety.

Ya Allah, please protect us all. Amin.
