New Video Educates Kids on How to Prevent Spreading H1N1 Virus

HARRISBURG, Pa., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Kids can learn the five things that they can do to prevent the spread of the H1N1 flu virus by watching "These Five Things," a new music video released today by the Department of Health.

"This video is groundbreaking because it educates children on the simple ways to prevent H1N1 flu in a manner that is fresh, fun and engaging," said Secretary Everette James. "Because children are extremely vulnerable to the H1N1 flu virus, it is important that schools, youth organizations and parents use interactive and appealing educational tools--such as this new video--to reach kids."

The video features students from Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter School in Midland, Beaver County. The video targets children between the ages of six and 12 and focuses on five steps to take to prevent getting or spreading the H1N1 virus:

  1. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and discard the tissue in the wastebasket. If you don't have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your sleeve, but not into your hands or onto bare skin.
  2. Keep your hands away from your face and don't touch your mouth, nose or eyes.
  3. Wash your hands with soap often. An alcohol-based hand sanitizer will work as well.
  4. Keep frequently used surfaces clean, such as knobs, countertops and desks.
  5. Stay home from school if you are sick.

"These Five Things," which is available for download, will be distributed to the state's elementary and middle schools for use in classroom settings, during morning announcements or student assemblies. It will also be available for community youth organizations.

"By learning these five simple prevention methods, kids can play a huge role in slowing or stopping the spread of the H1N1 flu," James added.
