Following the outbreak of swine flu the NHS has released a short film to remind everyone how easily germs can be spread through everyday contact with other people.

Preventing germs from spreading is the key health protection message from the NHS following the recent outbreak of swine flu in Mexico. Contagious viruses that spread from person to person can be kept in check by following simple hygiene steps.
