Swine flu panic grips Rajasthan
With a few reported deaths due to the spread of swine flu in Rajasthan, panic has gripped the populace. People in general and school children in particular are being made aware of the safety precautions to mitigate the spread of the disease. According to WHO, if precautions are not taken, the danger of the global outbreak of the disease increases.

It is pertinent to note that swine flu is just an influenza A H1N1 virus, which now has components of pig and bird influenza viruses to which humans hardly have any immunity to it. Therefore, it is all the more important to stop it from becoming a pandemic virus to lead to global outbreak since could easily spread from person-to-person travelling from place to place.

The precautions to be taken are the avoidance of crowded places; usage of medicated facemask; distancing oneself from sneezing people; and frequent use of a sanitizer to clean hands after visiting public places. Moreover, one should consult a doctor immediately if fever, cough and cold persist despite common medicines.

Keeping the foregoing in view, there is a need to stress and follow the safety measures to mitigate the spread of the disease.
