Swine Flu alert!

With the Swine flu threatening to attain a larger scale in India, it is very important for us to stay ever alert. The death rate has increased enormously in the last few days and people are literally panic stricken.

Check this link on wikipedia. It shows the toll on a world map!

In this respect I also came across this site:
Please go through it. It has a rich resource of information of dos and don'ts.

In any case, I share with you all of these and hope that this would benefit you and your near and dear ones.
Main symptoms:

How to prevent the spread of H1N1 Flu?

Wash Your Hands:

  • Before eating or preparing food

  • After coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose

  • After using the washroom

Hand washing technique:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. Rinse well, with hands held downward.

  • Dry with a paper towel, then use the towel to turn off the faucet

  • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand cleanser. Alcohol-based hand cleansers significantly reduce the number of germs

Spread of germs:

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs often spread when a person touches something contaminated and then touches their eyes, nose or mouth

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick

  • Attempt to keep at least three (3) feet or one (1) meter away from ill individuals

When sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick.

  • Practice respiratory etiquette.

  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, use tissues and dispose them properly.

  • Wash your hands afterwards.

The more I think of it, the more it seems to attain a gigantic hold on this billion population.

Friends, take care, stay healthy, keep fit, practice safety norms and hope for the best!
