Take Extra Precautions
As with any natural disaster or pandemic, people start to panic. There is all of a sudden a rush of people that all crowd into grocery stores looking for supplies to help prepare them for the flu. Many people feel as though if they are prepared then they can avoid the flu all together.
While planning ahead is crucial; it is only half the battle. There needs to be an overall awareness of the dangers that will still persist even if you are prepared. You need to take precautions when going into public, you need to upkeep your personal hygiene, and you need to be aware that there is no known vaccine yet. Yes, be prepared, but still continue to take proper precautions.
