Influenza A (H1N1) is a new strain of influenza virus that spreads from human to human and could spread quickly worldwide leading to a pandemic flu outbreak. The disease was known as Swine Flu because it has some elements of a virus found in pigs. But the World Health Organization now refers to as Influenza A (H1N1).
Like other flu viruses, the Influenza A (H1N1) virus spreads mainly through people with flu, coughing or sneezing. Sometimes people may become infected by touching something with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose.
Due to this, the Singapore Government and the Ministry of Health made the effort to educate its citizens and others who are living in Singapore on how to prevent the virus from spreading in case it gets here via media campaigns like the following:
