With the increasing number of H1N1 cases in Malaysia, it appears that the virus is fast becoming a buzzword. Some call it the swine flu, others just H1N1. Of late, some even call it the hinny virus, though it has got nothing to do with that equine hybrid.
It looks like the flu is fast developing into a mania, a craze that has engulfed us, in the same scale as scandalous political dealings and state by-elections. What hasn't caught on it the awareness to keep it in check. Sad...but then again, we tend to only act when the situation is beyond control.
