Influenza in Korea

How's everyone doing? I hope everyone is fine and is safe from the pandemic disease called H1N1 (influenza). Here in Korea, it's getting worse everyday. There are lots of people specially students who get the disease. It's really contagious that no one can avoid. They say you can avoid it by frequently washing your hands and covering your mouth when you sneeze. It could help I think but not a 100% specially when you're in public places. Students and parents are worried now that the second semester started and the number of students who get flu increased to 3 digits everyday. As of now, there are more than 7,500 people who have H1N1 and there three or more people died here in Korea. It scares me that I can't even take the bus, go to the supermarket or go to any places where there are crowds. I'm also worried at work so I go out every hour to wash my hands.

How about in your country? Is it worse than here or getting better?
