The H1N1 flu is a contagious respiratory disease caused by a new type of A influenza virus not seen in humans before this year.

Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing of people with flu. Sometimes people become infected by touching something with flu viruses on it and then touching their eyes, nose or mouth. Infected people may be able to infect others beginning one day before symptoms develop and up to seven or more days after becoming sick. You cannot get this flu from eating pork or pork products.


The most important precaution that you can take to avoid getting the flu is by following proper hygiene practices:

Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Wash your hands with soap and water frequently and especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.
Avoid close contact with sick people. ...more
