Download the complete Swine Flu Guide with address and phone numbers of hospitals and doctors and tips on improving your immune system. Swine influenza was first proposed to be a disease related to human flu during the 1918 flu pandemic, when pigs became ill at the same time as humans. The first identification of an influenza virus as a cause of disease in pigs occurred about ten years later, in 1930. For the following 60 years, swine influenza strains were almost exclusively H1N1. Then, between 1997 and 2002, new strains of three different subtypes and five different genotypes emerged as causes of influenza among pigs in North America. In 1997–1998, H3N2 strains emerged. These strains, which include genes derived by reassortment from human, swine and avian viruses, have become a major cause of swine influenza in North America. Reassortment between H1N1 and H3N2 produced H1N2. In 1999 in Canada, a strain of H4N6 crossed the species barrier from birds to pigs, but was contained on a single farm.
As you are aware, there have been several cases of H1N1 detected in India in the past few days. We therefore would urge you to take cognizance of the following and take the necessary precautions given below the address.

Swine Flu Preventive 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.
