A (H1N1) Influenza is mutation of four strain; 2 strains from Pig, one starin from Human and one strain from bird(Swine). Swine Flu is higly epidemic and can tranfer from human to human and eating of Pork is not felt responsible for this disease spreading.Symptoms of this flu is similair to that of Influenza like fever,coughing,sneezing and pain in muscules and jolt.A(H1N1) is declared Pandemic by WHO on 11h june 2009.

With the swine flu taking the life of 6 people till date starting from Reeda shaikh ,a 14 yrs old girl being the first victim .Lots of allegations as been put in by the Reeda family against on health minister Mr Gulam navi azad for blaming reeda for spreading this A(H1N1) influenza to nearly 85 peoples. Despite various efforts H1N1 is spreading fast.

According to the goverment data almost 47 lakhs people had been examined at various sea ports and 21 international airports which itself a great achievement as no country in the world examined 1 lakh people till dates including USA where the deaths of people is 485 ,Argentina deaths is around 337 and Australia -85 deaths.But number of cases in india is mutliplying everyday as if 20 new cases in mumbai per day,13 for delhi and 8 for pune.

As the condition is becoming bad day by day Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh called a meeting on Monday to ensure the proper coordination between the centre and state to check the spread of highly contagious disease and to set the guidlines for doctors by the health ministry in terms if self protection and what to look for in patients.

A website has been launched on monday for more awareness among people and not to make a choas of the disease .Motive is to bring the people which have symptoms of H1N1 to various centre for diagnose as H1N1 is highly endemic.  1 Lakh Tamiflu capsules in each 8 badly effected cities and 10,000 in each district, till date the medicine is not available in the open market as it could to problem hoarding of medicine or people consuming it arbitrarily and developing short term immunity which could prove fatal if consumed and Swine flu may occur to the patient who had taken medicine before.
