Sorry to sound harsh but how on earth can a tip be: stay healthy? You don't have enough influence on your health to give that as a tip i'd say. Advising people to stay away from crowded places only make them panicky instead of wary for the flu. Neither would I advice washing hands with antiseptics regularly as doing this too frequently will actually damage the protective layer of your skin. Overall the advices you give are not only aimed at the prevention of getting swine flu. Btw, instead of staying at home you could better see a doctor if your body temperature stays above 38.5 degrees Celsius for approximately 3 or 4 days in combination with cough, colds and returning from countries where an outbreak has occurred.
