Washington (CNN) — President Obama has declared a national emergency to deal with the “rapid increase in illness” from the H1N1 influenza virus.
“The 2009 H1N1 pandemic continues to evolve. The rates of illness continue to rise rapidly within many communities across the nation, and the potential exists for the pandemic to overburden health care resources in some localities,” Obama said in a statement.

I came across very helpful tips and it will work to protect you and your love one at home or anywhere, read below.
What to take to bed with you – not a joke. Pretty neat idea. Never thought of it before. Put your car keys beside your bed at night.
Assuming that you have a vehicle that has a remote controlled alarm system. Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, the Dr’s office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across. Put your car keys beside your bed at night.
If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off, or the car battery dies.
This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and start to put your keys away, think of this:
It’s a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain.
It works if you park in your driveway or garage. If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar, or rapist won’t stick around. After a few seconds,…. all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there,…… and sure enough the criminal won’t want that.
And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there. This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.
P.S. I am sending this to everyone I know, because, I think it’s fantastic. It Would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where you can’t reach a phone.
My Mom has suggested to my Dad that he carry his car keys with him in case he falls outside, and she doesn’t hear him.. He can activate the car alarm and then she’ll know there’s a problem.
Please pass this on, even IF you’ve read it before. It’s a good reminder;
81 dead in Mexico as flu emergency goes global, and it’s hitting the united states also, at least 11 cases in the US now. Although I have not heard about this flu before, it appear to he similar to the H5N1 or so call bird flu. The killing appear to be much greater than the bird flu according to latest media news. The scary this is it spread to the US now. I have not heard president Obama reaction to this yet, however authority in Mexico is going global to let the world know to prepare for prevention and cures.
