    Although the name 'swine flu' brings up a lot of extra fear and worry, it is important to note that swine flu is just an influenza A H1N1 virus. The big difference is that the current swine influenza A (H1N1) virus has components of pig and bird influenza viruses in it, so that humans don't have any immunity to it. That is what made it more likely that it would
    become a pandemic virus (have the ability to cause a global outbreak) because it could easily spread from person-to-person. The Swine flu has been compared to other similar types of influenza virus in terms of mortality: "in the US it appears that for every 1000 people who get infected, about 40 people need admission to hospital and about oneperson dies".

    Precautions to keep swine flu at bay -

    The deadly Swine Flu has reached the Indian shores following the
    global outbreak and now, claimed one life. However, Swine Flu is
    certainly one of those diseased where an ounce of prevention is
    worth a pound of cure. Here are five tips for you to keep away
    from the pandemic.

    1. Wash your hands frequently

    Use the antibacterial soaps to cleanse your hands. Wash them
    often, for at least 15 seconds and rinse with running water.

    2. Get enough sleep

    Try to get 8 hours of good sleep every night to keep your immune
    system in top flu-fighting shape.

    3. Drink sufficient water

    Drink 8 to10 glasses of water each day to flush toxins from your
    system and maintain good moisture and mucous production in
    your sinuses.

    4. Boost your immune system

    Keeping your body strong, nourished, and ready to fight infection
    is important in flu prevention. So stick with whole grains, colorful
    vegetables, and vitamin-rich fruits.

    5. Keep informed

    The government is taking necessary steps to prevent the pandemic
    and periodically release guidelines to keep the pandemic away.
    Please make sure to keep up to date on the information and act in a
    calm manner.

    Treatment -

    If a person becomes sick with swine flu, antiviral drugs can make the
    illness milder and make the patient feel better quicker. For treatment,
    antiviral drugs work best if started soon after getting sick (within 2 days
    of symptoms). The U.S. CDC recommends the use of Tamiflu (oseltamivir)
    or Relenza (zanamivir) for the treatment and/or prevention of infection
    with swine influenza viruses; however, the majority of people infected
    with the virus make a full recovery without requiring medical attention
    or antiviral drugs.

    Vaccination -

    WHO does not expect the swine flu vaccine to be widely available
    until the end of 2009, noting that current production "yield" was only
    about half as much as expected and would cause timeline delays.
    There is also concern that countries which produce vaccines, 70
    percent of which are in Europe, may delay sending swine flu vaccines
    to other countries as they may come under "tremendous pressure to
    protect their own citizens first," note some experts.

    Many countries are planning full blown large scale vaccination camps
    by the end of the year.
