Swine Flu

*ahem*

Recently, if you guys don’t already know,  there has been a lot of a talk, about an illness that is spreading all over : Swine Flu. Swine Flu is a disease that comes from pigs.
It is contagious, if one person has it, it could eventually get to another person. Swine flu is very serious, it has sickened many people, and unfortunately, some people have died because of Swine Flu.
What are your opinions on Swine Flu?
What do you think we should do in our school to make sure we don’t get infected? Should we start wearing masks?

  1. I think we have to be more aware of where we are putting our hands and constantly be aware that we should wash our hands before and after we eat. We need to take care and make sure things stay clean and make sure we are taking care of ourselves. If we notice something is wrong we should immediately go to a Dr, and see what is going on so we do not make ourselves worse or get anyone else sick.

    Swine Flu is a very scary thing. It is amazing how quick something like this can spread and cause widespread fear in everyone. We should all look into taking better care of ourselves in The U.S. otherwise we can be like the poor people in Mexico who do not have the good medical care.

    Wearing masks might not be a issue if we take care of ourselves and do not cough anyone and go home and get the proper care we need if any of the symptoms pop up.

  3. manavi swine flu is contagius, do u think anybody in the school has swine flu? my brothers friend’s friend has it! O.o

  4. swine flu is contagius, do u think anybody in the school has swine flu? my brothers friend’s friend has it! O.o

  5. I think the PS130 should have test on the swine flu because you might not no you have the swine flu. After you sneeze you should wash your hands really fast but count up to 25 seconds first then your done

  6. i think we should just wash our hands
    frequently and we should cover our
    mouths when coughing or sneezing.
    keep away from antibacterial products
    cause they kill good germs too. stick
    to soap and and water.

  7. I think that the swine flu is very dangerous, and that we should wash our hands before doing anything. I also think that putting a mask on as you said would be a great idea.

  8. I think that the swine flu is very dangerous and you should wash your hands several times a day. We should be careful what we touch because there so many germs around you, and you don’t know if that thing has germs or not.

  9. I think that US should have tests on the swine flu because you might not know you have the swine flu. After you sneeze you should wash your hands really, but count up to 25 seconds first then your done.

  10. I think the swine flu is really serious it’s killed many people. Cover your mouth when you sneeze, and also wash your hands often.

  11. Manavi the flu seems very dangerous, we should be careful and make sure to be clean at all times in order not to catch the flu.

  12. I think for the Swine flu we should wear masks just in case when someone sneezes. So the other person next to him/her doesn’t get sick or to make sure the person who sneezes covers there mouth and wash there hands right away.

  13. What I think about the Swine Flu is that you have to try not to get next to anyone that has the swine flu and always wash your hands and to cover your cough with your sleeve not your hands.

  14. I think that all schools should have constant tests every month to see if you are infected or not because you might not think having a sore throat, a headache, or a fever is a big deal, but those are the symptoms of the serious and deadly Swine Flu. We should wear masks just to be safe.

  15. manavi i think we should be clean at all times in order not to catch the flu,
    what do you think we should do in order to not catch the swine flu?

  16. I think that the swine flu is very dangerous, and we should wash our hands often. I think we should wear the masks if we go to places like Queens were they have a lot of infected people.

  17. I think that the swine flu is incredibly dangerous to certain people it has
    spread too close for comfort towards my area it has came to queens
    i’m worried for the country that we live in one day there might be a
    pandemic swine flu or other sicknesses.

  18. Swine Flu is not a good thing to have so you should not touch things that your not supposed to touch. You already know that it might have germs on it so you step back from it and there so many germs around you.

  19. My opinion about Swine Flu is that it is a very big surprise and it sounds dangerous. Our school should give children more information
    about the Swine Flu so we could understand it even better than we do now. When someone is sick, they should stay home until they feel better and are cured so that the children at school don’t get sick by staying around you. We should not wear masks unless someone in our school has Swine Flu.

    • I agree farha we should watch what we do and the way we teat it or try to be more carfule were we sneeze, colf, and that will help this world be a better place. By being carful and more consiterate at the way we treat our Planet Earth.

  20. I agree with you, Mr. Stegman that we shoud wash our hand before eating. swine flu is a very scary flu that can kill lots of people. Yesterday I saw seven countries had swine flu.

  21. I agree we should really watch were we put our hands and before eating or putting something in our mouth we should wash our hands then too. If you got the symptoms you should report to the doctor right away. There are already 51 cases confirmed of the Swine flu. We should not wear masks unless someone in this school has Swine Flu and so far none of us have it.

  22. Dear Manavi,
    I think the swine flu is very serious an infant in Texas has died i heard it on the news, me and my mother were devastated at that. We
    should wash our hands very frequently, in order not to catch the swine flu. We sure do have a bunch of cases in the United States, we have a few in the N.Y. Are you scared that you might get? I am!
    Scared, I think I do wash my hands enough and my friend, (I’m not mentioning names) after we had arts connection we had glue all over our hands and didn’t bother to wash her hands.

  23. I think the swine flu is VERY DANGEROUS, it has came from pigs(thanks alot!) and now there are some school closed, because a person is sick or so on. In order for us to not get sick we have to wash our hands, because everything you touch you don;t know how many germs are on it! So do anything to NOT GET SICK!

  24. You guys are all correct.
    We DO need to be very cautious and make sure to wash our hands and do everything so we will not get infected.

  25. I think the Swine Flu is a very advanced “nothing like we’ve ever seen” disease… as Manavi said, many people have died from it… I researched and figured out, ways to make sure you don’t get yourself or anyone else diseased. 1) wash your hands before and after every meal (kinda funny huh. most people should already be doing this though I feel I should list it.) 2) Cover your noses when you sneeze (another obvious tip). 3) When you go to a farm make sure you look at where you are touching them.

  26. I think that PS.130 should do a heath check to see if anybody has Swine Flu. Everyday wash your hand to 20 to 30 seconds.

  27. I also know about the swine flu. It can cause you to die so people should wash their hands 2 times a day.
