SWINE FLU What Is Swine Flu? Swine flu is a highly contagious (spreads from person to person) infection caused by a virus. The name ‘Swine Flu” is however a misnomer as the infection has also been detected in people who were never in contact with pigs. Thus the World Health Organization has changed its name to a more appropriate and scientific one- Influenza a (H1N1) How Does Influenza A (H1N1) Flu Spread? It spreads just like any other flu through: Coughing Sneezing Touching infected surfaces Signs and Symptoms: Symptoms are similar to the symptoms of a regular human flu and include: Fever Cough Sore throat Running nose Burning eyes Body aches Headache Chills Fatigue Severe illness like Pneumonia and Respiratory failure has also been reported
What Should We Do? Avoid travelling to flu prone countries as far as possible. Maintain good personal hygiene. Cover your sneeze and cough well with a disposable tissue. Adhere to good hand washing/cleaning procedures especially after coughing, sneezing and before meals. Avoid close contact with wild birds or animals. Avoid close contact with people who appear unwell and who have fever cough or cold.
