Although the name 'swine flu' brings up a lot of extra fear and worry, it is important to note that
swine flu is just an influenza A H1N1 virus. The big difference is that the current swine influenza A
Forever (H1N1) virus has components of pig and bird influenza viruses in it, so that humans don't have any
Login immunity to it. That is what made it more likely that it would become a pandemic virus (have the
ability to cause a global outbreak) because it could easily spread from person-to-person.

The deadly Swine Flu has reached the Indian shores following the global outbreak and now, claimed
one life. However, Swine Flu is certainly one of those diseased where an ounce of prevention is
worth a pound of cure. Here are five tips for you to keep away from the pandemic.

1. W ash your hands frequently

Use the antibacterial soaps to cleanse your hands. W ash them often, for at least 15 seconds and
rinse with running water.

2. Get enough sleep

Try to get 8 hours of good sleep every night to keep your immune system in top flu-fighting shape.

3. Drink sufficient water

Drink 8 to10 glasses of water each day to flush toxins from your system and maintain good moisture
and mucous production in your sinuses.

4. Boost your immune system

Keeping your body strong, nourished, and ready to fight infection is important in flu prevention. So

stick with whole grains, colorful vegetables, and vitamin-rich fruits.

5. Keep informed

The government is taking necessary steps to prevent the pandemic and periodically release
guidelines to keep the pandemic away. Please make sure to keep up to date on the information and
act in a calm manner.

Treatment -

If a person becomes sick with swine flu, antiviral drugs can make the illness milder and make the
patient feel better quicker. For treatment, antiviral drugs work best if started soon after getting sick
(within 2 days of symptoms). The U.S. CDC recommends the use of Tamiflu (oseltamivir) or Relenza
(zanamivir) for the treatment and/or prevention of infection with swine influenza viruses; however,
the majority of people infected with the virus make a full recovery without requiring medical
attention or antiviral drugs.

Vaccination -

WHO does not expect the swine flu vaccine to be widely available until the end of 2009, noting that
current production "yield" was only about half as much as expected and would cause timeline delays.
There is also concern that countries which produce vaccines, 70 percent of which are in Europe,
may delay sending swine flu vaccines to other countries as they may come under "tremendous
pressure to protect their own citizens first," note some experts.

Many countries are planning full blown large scale vaccination camps by the end of the year.
