Introduction

Tanya Y. 6/9/09 Discuss The Measures We Can Take to Prevent the Spread of the H1N1 Virus And How We Can Protect Ourselves From Getting Infected By It As we all know, and are aware that, the H1N1 influenza, or the more commonly used name, Swine Flu, has been attacking various citizens throughout the world.

This may seem like a lot of effort but to protect our health, and possibly our lives, these measures are extremely essential.
