As someone who many suspect may be responsible for the spread of the swine flu, I wanted to bring you several tips from msn.com.
- "Slowing the spread of a swine flu epidemic in the United States could well depend on how quickly communities can empty schools, close day care centers and shut down public gathering spots — and on whether ordinary people are willing to stay away from their neighbors." I don't know about y'all, but I'm more worried about the UNordinary people and hoping they avoid people ;) I tend to avoid my neighbors 365 days/year, so I'm all over this. If I'm spreading swine flu, I'm spreading it to the people I love most!
- "In some cases, people could be advised to stay 6 feet away from others in public, said Longini, who has built elaborate computer models that demonstrate how infection slows when such plans are implemented." Longini has a cool job. I have this visual of being at the mall and walking around with a personal-space perimeter... better yet, a bubble!!!
- "In severe situations, people may be told to stay 3 feet apart to avoid the infectious spray of droplets when someone coughs or sneezes, Currie said." Wait... in "some" cases we would require 6 feet of space, but in SEVERE situations, we only need 3. This is some fuzzy math!
