Two Things in Your Home Can Reduce Swine Flu Infection by 30%

You may be getting concerned at the news of the swine flu virus spreading

rapidly throughout the country. There have been around 280 confirmed cases

of swine flu in India as of 17th July.



It is important to understand how swine flu or for that matter any flu

spreads. Contrary to the popular belief, swine flu is not air borne. The

two main ways it spreads: first if someone who's infected sneezes or coughs

and you come in contact with the virus in the air. The other is if you

touch an object which may have have the virus and you touch your eyes,

mouth or nose.



It's common for people to touch their nose, eyes and mouth. Most of these

actions are sub-conscious like licking your tongue for flipping pages of a

book or a magazine. As soon as you feel an itch you immediately rub or

scratch your eyes.



Remember the virus can be anywhere - a door knob, a remote control, phones,

computer keyboards, etc. The idea is not to get paranoid and stop using

them. A simple task can protect you from infection.



Two things in your home - soap and water can reduce the chance of infection

by 30%. All you need to do is keep washing your hand with soap and water

frequently. And most importantly, stop touching your face. Make it a

conscious effort to observe and stop. Another side effect of not touching

your face too often - your skin looks better!

What is Swine Flu

Swine flu is an infection caused by a virus. It's named for a virus that

pigs can affect pigs. People usually do not get swine flu, but human

infections can and do happen. The virus is contagious and can spread from

human to human. Symptoms of swine flu in people are similar to the symptoms

of regular human flu and include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches,

headache, chills and fatigue.



Swine flu also known as swine influenza, hog flu and pig flu. In 2009 the

media labeled as "swine flu" the flu caused by 2009's new strain of

swine-origin A/H1N1 pandemic virus just as it had earlier dubbed as "avian

flu" flu caused by the recent Asian-linage HPAI (High Pathogenic Avian

Influenza) H5N1 strain that is still endemic in many wild bird species in

several countries.



Swine flu is a new influenza virus causing illness in people. This new

virus was first detected in people in the United States in April 2009.

Other countries, including Mexico and Canada, have reported people sick

with this new virus. This virus is spreading from person-to-person,

probably in much the same way that regular seasonal influenza viruses

spread.



Although symptoms have generally proved mild, a small number of patients

will develop more serious illness. Many of these people have other

underlying health conditions, such as heart or lung disease, that put them

at increased risk.



On June 11, 2009, the World Health Organization (WHO) signaled that a

global pandemic of novel influenza A (H1N1) was underway by raising the

worldwide pandemic alert level to Phase 6. This action was a reflection of

the spread of the new H1N1 virus, not the severity of illness caused by the

virus. At the time, more than 70 countries had reported cases of novel

influenza A (H1N1) infection and there were ongoing community level

outbreaks of novel H1N1 in multiple parts of the world.

How to Identify Swine Flu?

Swine flu Vs Common Cold

What are the typical symptoms of Swine Flu and how do you differentiate it

from the common cold or the regular flu?

The swine flu and the flu look identical to most people. Both have similar

symptoms such as

Fever

Headache

Cough

Sore Throat

Body Aches

However in some cases the swine flu may cause more discomfort. Patients

could complain of nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea, which are not typical

symptoms of Influenza or Flu. People over 65, children under age 8 and

anyone with a chronic medical condition are more susceptible to the virus.





How Does Swine Flu Spread?

Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person through droplets

created while coughing or sneezing by a person infected with the

influenza-A (H1N1) commonly known as swine flu. Infected person may be able

to infect others beginning one day before symptoms develop and up to seven

or more days after becoming sick.



Follow simple steps as cough etiquette (covering mouth & nose with

handkerchief or tissue paper while coughing), stay at least an arm’s

length from persons coughing or sneezing, avoid gathering and wash your

hands frequently. Try to stay in good general health. Get plenty of sleep,

be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids and eat

nutritious food.



How To Protect Yourself from swine flu

Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.

Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.

Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough

or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.

Try to avoid close contact with people having respiratory illness.

If one gets sick with influenza, one must stay at home, away from

work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting

them. However, if one is having any respiratory distress, one should

report to a nearby hospital.

Prevention and Precautions for Swine Flu

Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person through droplets

created while coughing or sneezing by a person infected with swine flu.

Infected person may be able to infect others beginning one day before

symptoms develop and up to seven or more days after becoming sick.



Stay away from people who display signs of swine flu. DO NOT TOUCH YOUR

MOUTH AND NOSE WITH YOUR HANDS. YOU MAY TOUCH SURFACES ON WHICH A PERSON

MAY HAVE EARLIER SNEEZED OR COUGHED. WASH & SANITIZE YOUR HANDS FREQUENTLY



Information on the effectiveness of facemasks and respirators for

decreasing the risk of swine fluis extremely limited. Thus, it is difficult

to assess their potential effectiveness in decreasing the risk of swine flu

(H1N1) virus transmission. In the absence of clear scientific data, the

interim recommendations below have been developed on the basis of public

health judgment, the historical use of facemasks and respirators in other

settings for preventing transmission of influenza and other respiratory

viruses.

You can help prevent the spread of germs that cause respiratory

illnesses like influenza by covering your nose and mouth with a

tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after

you use it.

Washing your hands often with soap and water, especially after you

cough or sneeze. You can also use alcohol-based hand cleaners.

Avoiding touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.

Trying to avoid close contact with sick people.

Staying home from work or school if you are sick.

The impact of swine flu is becoming more severe everyday. If you suspect

you have caught it, it recommended that you stay at home to avoid infecting

others. The virus typically spreads from coughs and sneezes or by touching

contaminated surfaces and then touching the nose or mouth. Symptoms are

similar to those of seasonal flu, and may include fever, sneezes, sore

throat, coughs, headache, and muscle or joint pains



Because swine flu is a new virus, most people have no natural immunity.

People older than age 50 are getting swine flu at far lower rates than

younger people, which may be an evidence older people may have some

immunity from prior exposures to a similar virus





What should I do if I Identify Swine Flu Symptoms?

People who have traveled from the affected countries in the past ten days

and show symptoms of influenza A (H1N1, swine flu) like fever, cough, sore

throat and difficulty in breathing should immediately contact the telephone

number given below or the nearby Government Hospital.

Steps being taken by Government of India to prevent outbreak of swine flu

in India:

The strategy is basically to detect early cases among the passengers

coming from the affected countries either by air, road or ship.

The Government has launched a massive mass media campaign to inform

and educate people on dos and donts.

Sharing information with public through media.
