How is the swine flu transmitted?

How is swine flu transmitted? Swine flu is transmitted just like any other flu. (Its symptoms are similar too.) So think of the usual cold/flu transmission vectors and you’re on the right path. Coughing, sneezing, touching, etc.  The best way to avoid swine flu, and I swear, my doctor said as much today when I got my annual physical, “Don’t hang out with people who have swine flu!”

Sounds like a smarmy remark, but that’s the truth. If you suspect you’re near anybody with swine flu or any flu for that matter, go somewhere else! If you must be near those with swine flu and don’t mind looking like a flu safety freak, you can try some of these measures.

  • wash your hands regularly
  • don’t rub your eyes
  • wear a surgical-type mask
  • cover your mouth when you sneeze or cough (preferably NOT with your hands!)
  • don’t shake hands
  • don’t touch doorknobs and other public items

Basically, if you want to avoid swine flu, watch a few episodes of Monk on USA and act like Mr. Monk. You don’t need to solve crimes (or do his unhealthy OCD schtick,) but his knack for cleanliness and fearing germs will prevent swine flu transmission.
