Where do I even begin? The media is taking this flu thing way out of proportion in regards to the United States. It's causing pandemic because, guess what, PEOPLE ARE MORONS. People are freaking out about a strain of the regular flu. Here is my response and how to prevent yourself from getting said flu:
1. WASH YOUR HANDS. Every single time I use the bathroom in a public place every single guy walks by me after using the restroom without washing their hands. Yeah, I'm serious, every single guy. That is first off, disgusting and second off, really unsanitary. Just take 2 minutes and help us all out who do wash your hands.
2. TAKE YOUR VITAMINS. Poor diet is also significant to said flu virus. Take a multivitamin and couple it with some extra vitamin C and zinc.
3. CALM THE HELL DOWN. If you are a normal person, you would already have decent personal hygiene, have a decent diet and are going on business as usual.
As far as travel goes, there has been a number of reports stating that if you are booked to fly to Mexico you can change your ticket by some airlines from May 6th and some great airlines giving people till May 20th. Hopefully this doesn't take a bit hit on the travel industry because they are already in dire straits.
Media, you suck. ABC has been the only station that has good coverage and isn't causing any panic in my eyes. Good for them.
