Are you a fifth columnist?

We got our government Swine Flu leaflet through the post today. I wasn't feeling nervous about pig flu til I read it. I will be very miffed if I get porcine flu as we had human flu over Christmas so having it twice in 12 months would be most unfair.

Anyway, the leaflet is full of obvious common sense stuff like use a clean tissue if you sneeze or cough and wash your hands often. It's not rocket science, however after observing a new mother on the bus to the hospital sneezing into her hand then holding the bus pole I've trying not to touch my face when out and about.

Public health scares are nothing new. I've been looking at old public health ads and found some classics from WW2.
