    Urgh.

    As does half his class. :woo:

    Is it easily 'catchable' from him?

    I sooo don't want to get it. :/
    It´s very contagious (at the same rate of ordinary flu) but don´t be a fraid cause It does not have to be dangerous If your immunologic system is working more or less fine. Just take care of your brother and, If anyone else in the family gets it, just rest, take your meds and do whatever the doctors tells you to.

    Most of the country is going to get it at some point. If you're not particularly vulnerable, it's unlikely to be overly serious. It will certainly be unpleasant, but it's not a serious threat in most cases.

    It is quite contagious because not many of us, if any, are immune to it. The chances of you getting it can be reduced by having little contact with him, and getting him to be hygienic, catch it kill it bin it, or whatever it is lol.

    If your area has been identified as a swine flu hotspot then only people diagnosed with swine flu will get the Tamiflu, not relatives/friends. It's really crap, but there's nothing we can do lol.
