The number of Swine flu infected patients in America reached 2532
people. Infected patients with flu has also begun to appear in Japan,
China, Brazil and so on.
All over the world is threatened very much by Swine flu.
In Japan, Masks sell well. There are a lot of people taking
a measure so as not to have the flu.
I want infection to be reduced even a little.
How do you think it should be done to stop infection?
Are you taking any measure?

Usually, different strains of flu are named after the country where they start, e.g. Spanish 'flu, Hong Kong 'flu, etc.
This one started in Mexico, so it should be called Mexican 'flu.
It's robably bad for the tourist industry, though.

A friend is spreading this message:

"Scientific prevention of Swine flu using household products :

1. Inhale clove oil for one second.
2. Chew 1 clove a day.
3. Eat raw garlic, onion, ginger.
4. Drink hot milk with 2 gm of turmeric.
5. Consume plenty of vitamin C fruits.
6. Use &#...039;Nilgiri oil' on handkerchiefs.
7. Wash-scrub your hands more than five times a day. Use disinfectant soap."

Ah, the trick here is, it will keep everyone away from you, therefore reducing your chance of getting coughed on.
