How to fight Swine Flu

August 11, 2009 at 3:55 pm 3 comments

As much as we hear today all over the threat of “Swine Flu”. I found it’s symptoms and treatment available at this point.

Hope it will be helpful to take early precautions for to be away from this nasty disease.

Symptoms and treatment:

The basic symptoms for swine flu are similar to the seasonal flu – fever, sore throat, cough, stuffy nose, headache, body aches and fatigue.

H1N1 strain is a mutated form of the swine virus. It is communicable only through human-to-human contact.

Swine flu is not a food-borne disease and does not spread through pork.

Tamiflu, Relenza are prescription drugs effective against these strains of Swine Flu.

There is no vaccine for swine flu as yet.

The incubation period is one to seven days.

If an antiviral agent is warranted, it should ideally be initiated with 48 hours from the onset of symptoms.

Precautions:

Here are a few simple dos and don’ts that will help prevent spreading the infection.

Maintain hygiene, wash hands frequently.

Avoid contact with those who cough and sneeze.

Avoid crowded places and social gatherings.

If there are any symptoms, contact the doctor immediately as the treatment drugs are not available in the open market.

If infected, stay home and avoid travelling.

Always cover mouth while coughing or sneezing, to avoid the disease from spreading.

    its quite bad. UK is hit pretty hard, to the point where they are selling tamiflu without a perscription to anyone that asks for it, symptomatic or not. I will def be getting my shots this year.

    This virus was originally referred to as “swine flu” because laboratory testing showed that many of the genes in this new virus were very similar to influenza viruses that normally occur in pigs in North America. But further study has shown that this new virus is very different from what normally circulates in North American pigs.

    WHO had a global stockpile of approximately 5 million adult treatment courses of oseltamivir – that’s the antiviral drug that they’re currently distributing worldwide.

    BUT antiviral drugs should NEVER be taken without a prescription.

    ~ Thank You, for putting up the light on this post with so valuable information. Many will get the idea now about this rapidly growing disease. May Allah save us all from this disease, Aameen.

House in Paradise!

Narrated AbuUmamah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: I guarantee a house in the surroundings of Paradise for a man who avoids quarrelling even if he were in the right, a house in the middle of Paradise for a man who avoids lying even if he were joking, and a house in the upper part of Paradise for a man who made his character good.(Sunan Abu Dawood,Book 41, Number 4782)
