What is Swine Flu?

swine fluSwine Flu as the name suggests is supposed to bother swines and not humans in the first place. It isn’t really as big a devil as it is conceived to be. It just so happened that people working closely or in contact with pigs (mostly in Mexico) picked up the disease and it started spreading soon after.

Now it really isn’t that simple. The virus has mutated enough to be able to inoculate humans and can now be considered a different strain altogether. Swine flu affects the respiratory system and is caused by the H1N1 virus or Type A influenza virus.

Not all are vulnerable. People with minor chest/respiratory infections are more susceptible to H1N1 infections. Medications prescribed are usually the usual flu medicines, though Tamiflu is being recommended now. Therapeutical challenges are presented because the virus is a state of mutation and keeps evolving.

It’s always better to avoid getting inoculated rather than trying to fight it. A healthy immune system along with appropriate prevention measures like face masks, avoidance of contact with the disease, proper disposal of items used by the diseased can help you keep the disease at bay.

There’s no point in trying to infect the world with your infection. If you’ve got the symptoms make sure you get in touch with your doctor immediately and prevent the spread of the disease to others.
