    Swine flu - do's & don'ts

    Dear All,

    As you are aware, there have been several cases of H1N1 detected in India in the past few days. I therefore would urge you to take cognizance of the following and take the necessary precautions:

    1. Basic Measures
    Use a tissue/handkerchief when you cough or sneeze.
    Wash your hands thoroughly and often, especially after sneezing or coughing, using soap and water.
    Wipe surfaces like door-knobs using a regular cleaner.
    If you're sick with flu-like symptoms, even if you don't feel sick enough, go to the doctor.
    Whenever possible, rather than relying on the use of face-masks or respirators, avoid close contact with people who might be ill and being in crowded settings.
    Respirators should be considered for use by individuals for whom close contact with an infectious person is unavoidable. This can include selected individuals who must care for a sick person (e.g., family member with a respiratory infection) at home.
    Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.

    Symptoms To Watch Out For

    1. Fever
    2. Fatigue
    3. Lack of appetite
    4. Coughing
    5. Sore throat
    6. Vomiting
    7. Diarrhea
    8. Mild respiratory illness (nasal congestion, rhinorrhea)
    9. Myalgia (muscle pain)
    10. Headache
    11. Chills
    12. Dyspnea (sensation of breathlessness or inadequate breathing)
    13. Conjunctivitis
    14. Nausea

    Hello Deepak Thakur,

    Thank you for such an useful information. Swine flu is very dangerous unless we act wisely. This is a flu which can be prevented and even can be treated but only the essential thing is one has to admit himself before it becomes severe.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Hi friend
    Thank you for such an important information.

    Common people get benifits from it. I also requested people to take care as mentioned above and go to doctors for check-up.

    With regards!
