Swine flu - helping you to manage your defences

Swine flu is everywhere…both metaphorically and physically. It’s right back at the top of the national news agenda, largely because the numbers of people being infected by the virus is growing day by day.

Estimates of how many people are likely to contract swine flu over the coming months vary wildly, but one thing is certain – a regime of sensible planning and good hygiene can help to slow its progress.

That means washing your hands regularly with soap and water or an alcohol hand rub; making sure hard surfaces such as door handles are frequently wiped clean; covering your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing; and disposing of dirty tissues promptly and carefully.
