How can you help stop the spread?

Help Stop the Spread of H1N1

I don't know if this is accurate or not but several different sources seem to be giving us this information so I thought I would pass it on... some say the HINI outbreak will peak this week...some say it will break out again in January... I am not a doctor and have no idea but the chart is interesting so I thought I would pass it on... it makes some sense... as always wash your hands and stay home if you are sick and as we do in my office LYSOL!
