(Vocus) November 30, 2009 -- According to the most recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report, widespread H1N1 influenza activity has been reported in 48 states in the U.S. Millions of American have caught this pandemic flu since it first surfaced in April 2009 and more than 4,000 have died due to complications related to this influenza infection.

2009 H1N1 Influenza infection is thought to occur in the same way as seasonal flu, which is mainly person-to-person transmission through coughing or sneezing of people infected with the influenza virus. People may become infected by touching something with flu virus on it and then touching their eyes, mouth, or nose.

Follow four simple health habits to help keep yourself—and others healthy:

WASH YOUR HANDS: Frequent hand washing is the single most important thing you can do to keep from getting sick

AVOID CLOSE CONTACT: Particularly with people who are sick

COVER YOUR COUGH AND SNEEZE” Use a tissue and then wash your hands or cough and sneeze into your elbow to keep germs off your hands

STAY HOME WHEN YOU ARE SICK: Do not go to work, school, or travel when you’re sick. Don’t share your germs! If you do become ill , stay home for at least 24 hours after you no longer have a fever (100° F or greater), or signs of a fever, without the use of fever-reducing medicines (such as Tylenol).



“This is an important service that the Institute is offering to the community that we serve” said Abdul Sohail Rao, M.D., M.A., D.Phil., Chief Executive Officer and Chief Research Officer of the Institute. “I encourage people to take advantage of this convenient service and call or visit our affiliated campuses to schedule a visit”.
