Swine Flu in the Philippines

It is very alarming! there are now 14 confirmed cases of influenza A(HINI) here in the Philippines. Children are now going to school starting this first week of June. From the local news, it is reported that our government has already stocks around one million anti-swine flu drugs for future needs. Well this is good! at least the department are ready in case of epidemic but how i wish and pray that the gradual spread of swine flu is totally eradicated all over the world.
It is now time for us mothers to be always keep on educating our children how to avoid this swine flu disease.
*Keep away from classmates who have cough or fever and report immediately to their teacher. Tell them to cover also their mouth when coughing and consult to their parents if they do not not feeling well.
*Always eat nutritious food and foods high in vitamin C as well to increase their resistance against any diseases.
*Always wash their hands before eating and after defecation with soap and water.
*Advised children avoid buying snacks from street vendors.
