I find that this advert has such a powerful statement! OK, it is gross, but only from the gross-ness of it that I read on the advert text. And it's quite chilling statement in fact! I wish our health ministries are doing adverts like this as well. You can also download the leaflet for more info. Excerpts from the leaflet:
HOW DOES SWINE FLU SPREAD?
Flu viruses are made up of tiny particles that can be spread through the droplets that come out of your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze.
When you cough or sneeze without covering your nose and mouth with a tissue, those droplets can spread and others will be at risk of breathing them in.
If you cough or sneeze into your hand, those droplets and the germs in them are then easily spread from your hand to any hard surfaces that you touch, and they can live on those surfaces for some time. Everyday items such as door handles, computer keyboards, mobile and ordinary phones and the TV remote control are all common surfaces where flu viruses can be found.
If other people touch these surfaces and then touch their faces, the germs can enter their systems and they can become infected. That’s how all cold and flu viruses, including swine flu, are passed on from person to person.
I find that their slogan is real catchy!
