Swine flu: Clean hands protect against human influenza H1N1 infection

By Syed Akbar
Here are some of the suggestions by the World Health Organisation on prevention of the pandemic flu virus.

To protect yourself:

* Clean your hands regularly.
* Wash your hands with soap and water, and dry them thoroughly.
* Use alcohol-based handrub if you don’t have immediate access to soap and water.

You may ask, "how do I wash my hands properly?"

Washing your hands properly takes about as long as singing "Happy Birthday" twice,
using the images below.
