I have been watching the news, and it is getting really scary,with all the talk of the Swine Flu .It is confirmed to be in the States and also in Canada,although it is a milder version at the moment but they are saying it could get worse.I have decided to stay home more and not go to big gatherings.Are you all taking precautions as well? Or are you not really worried about it?

It appears that it is arriving here in Europe now too I work in an hoteland we have visitors from all over the world so I guess it could even arrive there too. I can only hope that none will be bringing it with them but there is nothing I can do to avoid it if that happens I fear. This is certainly a scary thing happening right now.

We have 3 suspected here where I am so it is spreading all over.hopefully it will stay mild and will die out before it becomes a deadly virus itn the rest of the world.I feel very bad for the people in Mexico and hope they can get it under control there soon.

I am very worried about it especially if it keeps spreading because I work at a supermarket wich I have to interact with people every day and im affraid there could be some people that got infected that would go there. But hopefully this thing wont spread a lot and die away.

I hope you can wash your hands often and get a little bottle of hand wash.

I am pretty worried about because we live in South Texas and it is originating from Mexico. A large majority of the population here is of Mexican descent. There is a town very close to here that has basically shut down because 3 students have been confirmed to have the swine flu. They have closed all the schools, government buildings, churces, etc. It is pretty scary! I am even wondering if I should let my boys stay home from school until this settles down. Tonight we will be talking about how to protect ourselves. I am pretty worried!

I can understand your concerns,I guess the best we can do is stay out of public places as much as possible and wash our hands often,I carry a spray with me, so I can clean my hands and things before I touch them.Hopefully this will help.
