Things to keep in mind regarding H1N1 (swine) flu:
If you’re in close proximity to H1N1, you have a 1 in 2 chance of actually coming down with it if you don’t follow the prevention strategies recommended by the Centers for Disease Control.
H1N1 is spread through droplet secretion, so it’s a very big drop. If someone coughs or sneezes on you, you have an opportunity to get it, especially if it comes in contact with your mucus membranes, like your eyes or nose.
H1N1 can live outside the body for up to 17 days on things like paper money. So wash your hands well or us hand sanitizer before touching your face.
