Could Swine Flu Be The Next Pandemic-ca1871

UnCategorized The very first death from swine flu happened on April 13th, 2009 when a woman from Oaxaca (who was also a diabetic) died from respiratory .plications. Mexican fatalities have grown as the virus has spread, now known as the H1N1 (or Influenza A) as well as others have worldwide. A U.S. toddler has been reported recently as one of the first to die from the virus, as has a woman from Texas who was pregnant (but also had other health .plications that were not disclosed.) A lot of people who have been injected with a flu shot many times over in the past may actually have a better chance at not getting this type or dying from it. Many factors play a role in whether it can kill or be killed. There are multiple reasons why some people get the virus and survive and others do not. The signs and symptoms are similar to the typical flu in humans and include cough, fever, sore throat, headache, body aches, fatigue and chills. Some have reported diarrhea and vomiting as well. Pneumonia and respiratory failure are two prevalent causes of death that are associated with this type of flu. Regular seasonal flu as well as this strain can cause a worsening of other chronic medical conditions that pre-exist. This flu spreads just like the usual strains, by person to person or item to person contact. Coughing and sneezing are two main ways people spread it to one another. Other times, people get infected by touching something that has the germ on it, and then touch their mouth or nose. To stop this potentially lethal killer, everyone should keep washing their hands. They should also get plenty of sleep, drink lots of water, and try their best to stay in generally good health. Be physically active, eat the right foods and manage your stress. Avoid places and people that have been associated with this virus. Recently, several countries including China, Serbia and Russia banned the import of any pork products from North America. The Egyptian government has even killed off 300,000 pigs in Egypt as a response. Afghanistan’s only pig- which is kept at the Kabul zoo, was quarantined amidst fears on May 5th, 2009. Swine survival is looking rather grim in other countries as a result of this horrible disease spreading globally. In Mexico, young adults from the ages of 25-45 were affected the hardest. This age grouping is indicative of a possible flu pandemic. Millions of people could eventually get sick with this strain as well as thousands could potentially die. A swine vaccine is being worked on by scientists and will be given to people once it is .pleted to stop the death toll from rising. Predictions of the size and severity of outbreaks of influenza isn’t an exact science. In fact, in 1976 the U.S. government predicted a swine flu pandemic inaccurately and nobody ever fell prey to it. Will there be a pandemic outbreak from this particular virus? We will have to just wait and see to find out. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
