Today, As you know influenza is spreading over the world. Many people are infected it and killed by it.
After all people who infected it are appeared in Japan. They are high school students around OSAKA.
In OSAKA, almost all junior high school and high school are closed and some University and college are closed too. But, All University and college are not closed.
In store, masks were sold out everywhere. In restaurant, gests are fewer and fewer.

I think it is absurd that all University and college are not closed. But, even if University and college are closed, students will go out to play with friends.

What should we do? What can we do?

Come on!
Just get on with your life.
You can't hide in a sterilised closet every time the media start forecasting gloom and doom; they do it every day.
Influenza has been around for a very long time. This latest one is pretty mild and has killed hardly anybody compared to "regular" 'flu. Most healthy people have an immune system that can deal effectively with any type of 'flu. It's only the weak and sick that succumb to it. It's nature's way of thinning out the herd, since we have killed off all the real predators.
