Swine Flu (H1N1)

Worldwide, overall H1N1 and seasonal influenza/flu activity remains low. In places where the winter season is in progress, current influenza/flu activity is at variable levels. World Health Organization (WHO) is actively monitoring the progress of the pandemic (H1N1) and is in frequent consultations with different countries.

With the monsoon season and heavy rains in several parts of the country, there have been cases of A(H1N1) viral infection detected in the second phase of the pandemic. Health experts have indicated the possibility of surge in the cases in coming days with faster transmission of the virus in this season. Hence, it is advisable that all of us follow basic health & safety measures to protect ourselves.

The symptoms of A(H1N1) are similar to normal seasonal flu. We advise to consult a general physician/ a family doctor immediately in case of any flu like symptoms. Further, A(H1N 1) confirmation tests should be done only at the advice of general physician/ family doctor. These tests are done at the designated hospitals (select government and private hospitals). The updated Pandemic Advisory and list of hospitals is available at the Channel W link given at the end of this mailer.

It is possible to protect yourself and others from A(H1N1) by observing simple hygiene measures and taking appropriate medication in case of illness.

Basic Hygiene Procedures:

Wash hands with soap and water more often and thoroughly
Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it and wash your hands. The tissue is disposable hence preferable to use over a handkerchief
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth to prevent the spread of germs
Try to avoid close contact with infected people
Drink lots of fluid and eat nutritious food
If you have flu symptoms stay home and avoid crowds to prevent spread of Infection
Do not take any medicines without consulting doctors
