Will You Be Denied The Swine Flu Shot?


Nobody enjoys going to get a flu shot, but we do expect that if we want one, getting in line for it should simply be a matter of showing up for the event. But what if that was not the case? What if you discovered that you were actually turned away from an inoculation center because you did not fit a predefined "profile" for who is eligible to receive a shot?

Ironically, in a year in which a pandemic strain is circling the globe, this is a very real possibility. Right now we know for certain that swine flu vaccines will be in short supply until sometime in 2010. That means not everyone can be vaccinated against the new pandemic virus.

In fact, vaccine manufacturers let it be known in mid August that instead of the initial 120 million doses of swine flu vaccine that they had projected would be made available for distribution to the U.S. population, only 45 million doses are likely to materialize.

Not only is this not great news, we still have no idea yet whether the new vaccine will even offer significant protection - the 2008 seasonal flu vaccine protected only 44 percent of those who received the shot. So the availability and efficacy of swine flu vaccine is still very much up in the air.

Right now this is not a huge concern, because the virus has not claimed a large number of lives. In fact, it has so far caused no more misery than the seasonal flu, which claims up to a half million lives across the globe every year. But that could change quickly, and if the new swine flu strain suddenly proves to be significantly more lethal than it has been, people will want to be vaccinated, and finding themselves denied the shot could be very worrisome.

So who *will* be allowed to get the shot when it first becomes available? First responders to emergencies need to remain healthy, as do doctors and other health workers who will take care of the sick. Members of the military are also likely to go into the line, as are children, who have shown a higher tendency to fall sick, pregnant women, and anyone with cardiac problems, high blood pressure, or other underlying health problems than can cause a lowered immune response.

If you are otherwise healthy, and you are an adult, then you will likely have to go to the back of the line and wait until early 2010 before you can be vaccinated. Given that the U.S. will get its hands on an estimated 45 million doses of the new vaccine by late October, and depending on whether one or two shots are required to invoke an antibody response to the new swine flu, about one seventh (more likely), to one third of the population of the United States could be vaccinated during the first round.

But if you are NOT one of the lucky first to be vaccinated, and the virus does turn significantly worse, all is not lost. There are still antiviral drugs that can be administered to break an infection that has got started in your body. To learn more about your options I recommend that you check out Survive Pandemic Flu, which was written in response to the emergence of the new pandemic. It goes into great detail about pandemic influenza, and what you can do to protect both yourself and your family from the threat.

Drug-resistant Swine Influenza virus transmit via human in Japan

There is many drug-resistant cases of Human swine influenza (H1N1) all over the world, Japan has recently discovered the first cases of swine influenza drug-resistant human transmission. The girl has never taken Tamiflu, but infected ”Tamiflu” resistant swine flu virus.

Health and Welfare Ministry said a girl in Sapporo of Hokkaido, had never taken ”Tamiflu”, she admitted to hospital of fever last month, it is confirmed she was affected by swine flu resistance virus. The girl recovered next day after being prescribed ” Relenza” from the hospital.

However, the Ministry of Health and Welfare refused to confirm the girl were infected by drug-resistant-to-human transmission of swine influenza, but they do not deny this possibility. They claimed that she only infected with a variant of swine flu, and there is no evidence to show that the Infective power of this virus is strong and the toxicity is become stronger.

Tanning Protects Against The Swine Flu?


[Post by Jessica L. Flint, College student major Physics] I would like to bring to your attention a subject that the media is saying will soon be affecting us again, the Swine Flu (H1N1 virus.) As a college student majoring in Physics, I feel the need to shed light on a study I have recently become a huge supporter of, Indoor tanning as a precaution against the H1N1 virus.

Not only is indoor tanning giving us all a bit of color and a boost of confidence, a study which started out focusing on the positive effects Vitamin D has against battling the seasonal flu has taken a turn on how Vitamin D can help protect against the H1N1 Virus, commonly known as the Swine Flu Virus.

It is estimated that over 95% of U.S. senior citizens suffer from Vitamin D deficiency, along with an alarming 85% of the general U.S. public (these numbers are at their highest during the Winter months.) Unless you are getting regular UV exposure to a large portion of your body, it is imperative that you get your Vitamin D levels checked on a regular basis. Experts recommend getting in at least 2,000 IU (International Units) per pound of body weight per day of Vitamin D. It is suggested to jump into a safe tanning bed to raise Vitamin D levels, one tanning session provides 4,000 – 5,000 IU’s (International Units) per tanning session, which contains more IU’s than a glass of milk.

Not only is the intake of Vitamin D going to help combat off the Swine Flu, but studies have shown Vitamin D is responsible for lowering rates of disease, helping fight against respiratory infections and a lower death rate. Those lacking sufficient Vitamin D levels can suffer from brittle, thin bones. Not too mention Vitamin D is the happy vitamin, releasing endorphins into the blood stream. Endorphins give sudden bursts of energy and a general feeling of pleasure, who doesn’t love a vitamin that will increase happiness.

I feel this alternative is a far better solution than the mandatory Swine Flu vaccine which is in talks at the moment.

The aforementioned vaccine will be mandatory for the elderly and pregnant. As a woman, there is absolutely no way I would inject a virus into my body and into the blood stream of my unborn child. Nor would I ever suggest injecting this into someone who is elderly and naturally has a weakened immune system.

Swine influenza virus could go into lungs


Human swine influenza (H1N1 influenza) outbreak, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reiterated many times swine flu is less lethal than seasonal influenza, people should not be too fightened.
But H1N1 influenza virus are not only not afraid of hot weather,
New research also shows it is much more harmful than expected, also large infiltration in the lungs of infected persons before a large number of breeding.


Adhesion nose and throat

The University of Wisconsin-Madison virologist Yoshihiro Kawaoka, the Professor, experiment on rats, monkeys and ferrets made them infected with swine influenza and seasonal influenza.
He found that seasonal influenza virus was found only in animal adhesion of the nose and other upper respiratory System. But the swine influenza virus can be found in-depth lung cells, and then a large-scale breeding, and made the infected person's lungs in severely damaged as well as pneumonia, and even death.
Kawaoka pointed out that the special attack of swine influenza infection in the lungs, was similiar as the Spanish flu pandemic which killed more than 6,000 million people in 1918.
The people whom born in 1918 was natural with antibody swine influenza, reflected the two viruses were similar.

Is Swine Flu virus derived from laboratory to make fast evolution?




Human Swine Influenza is a combination of swine flu, avian flu and human flu virus, but it has always been a mystery that no one can answer how this virus is form.

Australian plant virologist Gibbs (Adrian Gibbs) believed that the swine flu was not from nature, but the development of human vaccines in the laboratory, which accidentally allow a virus to escape and affected by the human.

WHO did not agree the theory of the 75-year-old Gibbs, after he analysis the swine influenza gene of Mexico and the United States, he found that the evolution of swine influenza viruses is much faster than the general body of the influenza virus in pigs, so it should not like spread out by pig. In his view, the virus may be from another host, such as birds or fish, who spent a period of time evolution; or researchers in the laboratory to develop vaccines using an egg, the birth of the virus in eggs, was escape from the laboratory and then proliferate in the community.

Gibbs said: "The virus may be caused by human error, the sooner we know the virus come from, the more security." He had written the report of the findings, but not published. However, he conceded that it is not enough evidence to show swine influenza virus is transmitted by the laboratory, "escaped" over the weekend, therefore he reported the case to WHO, the WHO would like to investigate.

WHO had contacted the world's human and animal influenza laboratories, research Gibbs arguments are true. Acting Assistant Director-General of WHO Keiji Fukuda said that at present all the evidence do not support the theory of Gibbs. U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Department of influenza tester Dramix (Nancy Cox), did not agree with Gibbs because he did not got South American and African swine flu virus samples and the new type of swine influenza virus was evolutes in these two countries, and also "no evidence that the virus originated from an egg."

How to differentiate swine flu or pig flu from the common flu?


The Human Swine H1N1 Type A influenza (also called swine flu, hog flu, and pig flu) epidemic worldwide and confirmed across the globe. Seems it is not easy to avoid it. Once if you got flu symptoms, how can you know you got affected Swine flu or not?

Symptoms of swine and seasonal flu include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills, and fatigue. Both symptoms are almost the same. Dr. Ng Hee Liang (M.B., B.S. Singapore) mention that, even the symptoms is similar, you can still identify if affected within 2-3 days.

If you got common flu or seasonal flu, it can be recovered within first 2-3 days. Take Prescription medicine is a common way to cure. You don’t need to worry about if there is no more symptoms in 4-5 days.

However, the chance of affect Swine Flu is high if your symptoms get worse over 4 days or last long time (even take prescription medicine). In some cases, after feeling a little better, it show signs of a more serious problem. Some of these signs are a sick-to-your-stomach feeling, vomiting, high fever, shaking, chills, chest pain, or coughing with thick, yellow-green mucus.
Some Patients do seem to be reporting diarrhoea and vomiting more often with swine flu than is the case for "normal" flu. Some of the patient’s body temperature even rise to 39 degree or even more.

In another way, Dr. Bermal of Manila (Philippines) explains that flu viruses commonly circulate in the human and animal environment. Seasonal flu is caused by flu viruses that change to spread in humans; whereas swine flu is caused by those that affect pigs. She notes that the mixing of human and animal flu viruses can lead to the development of new viruses in which the human population has little or no immunity against.

Secondly, Swine Flu virus is more active than the common flu, it can spread from human to pig and vice versa. If it spread from pig to human, it also can spread between human to human. For common flu, it can only spread between human to human. Common flu will have chance to spread over after the patient affected in first 2-3 days. For the incubation period, Swine flu virus may only have symptoms 7 days after affected, while common flu virus only has maximum 4 days. The death rate of H1N1 virus is relatively higher than common flu. It is about 6.77% compare to less than 1% of common flu. Age around 20 – 45 is easy to affect H1N1 virus and many of them is teenagers, while common flu is not only affected by young people.

Finally, uunless you have access to a virology laboratory, you probably can't distinguish the two viruses in exact way. In practice the two forms are probably indistinguishable.

P.S. Wash hand frequently and wearing face masks in crowd place is the only way to prevent swine flu.

Swine flu influenza turn to mainstream


Strong army siege swine flu, the latest CHP data show that swine flu thriving Influenza A total of 78% of cases. Community outbreak of the past "flu Hutch" Brisbane-based routed H1 and H3 are respectively 2% and 19% respectively. Microbiologists bound to further expand their territory for Swine Flu, the rate of approximate 90%.

40% patients with full recovery

Dr. Ho, Director of Infection and infectious diseases Centre of University of Hong Kong explain that, in accordance with such a rapid upward trend in the ratio of swine influenza is expected next week, it will rise to 80% to 90% and promoting public hospitals by patients and shorten the days to enable them to discharge home confinement to free up beds to cope with serious cases.

China has succeeded in producing the first batch of H1N1 Influenza vaccine


According to China Central Television reported that China has successfully produced the first batch of
H1N1 influenza
vaccine.

The report said that the company officially announced the biological Westlands has successfully produced the first batch of H1N1 Influenza A domestic vaccine, expected in July to conduct clinical trials.

It has been reported that the adoption of the vaccine after the pre-clinical experiments, but also a further 40-50 days to conduct clinical trials, so the real use of vaccines, but also the need two months time.

According to expert explaination, H1N1 influenza vaccines and seasonal influenza vaccine can not be vaccinated at the same time.

Up to now, China has reported a total of 414 confirmed cases of influenza A H1N1.

WHO Raised the Swine Flu Pandemic Alert to Level 6

As the death toll climbs, the World Health Organization is set to declare a swine flu pandemic, a move that could prompt fast-track production of preventive vaccines.

The declaration of a global epidemic was expected Thursday as WHO officials huddled in an emergency session in Geneva in the wake of 141 swine flu deaths worldwide.

Pigs infected with the same symptoms


Human swine influenza (H1N1 Type A influenza) epidemic worldwide. In order to have deep understanding of swine influenza virus, Thailand Chulalongkorn University scientists make new born piglets inflect human swine flu, they found that the symptons were same as human and none of them were die.



Damage the lungs when coughing fever

When 22 pigs infected with swine influenza virus, they have flu symptom such as fever, coughing, sneezing, runny nose and conjunctivitis within the four days, their lung damage very significant and covering 1 of 3 lung.

However, the virus only appear in the respiratory adhesion, the did not penetrate into the blood or tissue, even though pigs are also infected with H3N2 influenza virus, but they do not die.

Researcher refers to the results of this study indicate that swine flu just make the pigs weaned flu-like symptoms, as well as lung damage. This situation make them have a better understanding, and also prevent the swine flu virus reach the Thailand.

Since the outbreak of swine flu, many country denied North America pork products import. But the WHO Secretary-General Dr Margaret Chan mention that there is no evidence to show pork can cause disease, she appeal people continue to eat pork.

Cabin Toilet, the most high-risk to spread Swine Flu



China's outbreak of swine flu cases came from other countries, the public concerned about the epidemic passenger plane once again, and the spread of the virus problem in the cabin.

The outbreak of swine flu in humans has no travel warning, where is the most saftey position inside the plane?

LO Wing-lok, a specialist of infectious diseases in Hong Kong pointed out that although the cabin ventilation system to operate independently from the top to bottom, but if patients move around, the virus will continue to spread, and the toilet is the most high-risk areas, "Passengers are cough and sneeze inside the toilet without any protection, there must be full of germs, and then other passengers get caught easily. "

Lo Wing-lok also pointed out several rows of seats before and after patients is high-risk areas also. "There have been documented reported that patients with ordinary flu transmission area can be up to as much as before and after the five-row. A class from Hong Kong to Beijing flight during SARS, more patients with infections as far as seven rows of passengers. "Therefore, he suspected if trace only three rows of passengers before and after patients with the controversial area. Should we seat facing the wall?

Lo Wing-lok means that it may not be the most secure, because "If patients sitting behind you, it is easy being affected, unless if you go with your family and occupy a few rows of seats, and it will be more cautious when you sit facing the wall andnext to baby seat. "

1/4 patient's towel with vomit defecate can also spread disease

The world's medical profession has been disintegration of the characteristics of swine influenza virus and the power of spread, the United States Center for Disease Control warned that when the virus broke out in some areas of avian influenza, there may be genetic variants of the mixtures. They found that most of the United States is the young people infected, only 5% of patients over 51 years old, a quarter of patients vomit defecate; In addition to the spread of droplets, the contact with used towels, blankets are the risks of infection. U.S. CDC National Center for Immunization and respiratory Anne Schuchat concern that the swine flu in the United States has not the mainstream of influenza virus, but may be related to the popular H3, and alpha-alpha to gene shuffling H1N1 influenza virus variants after Treatment of drug resistance may occur because of the general type of the H1N1 virus resistant to Tamiflu over 90%. She also warned that once the swine flu outbreak in the avian flu region and become active, there may be associated with the avian flu virus H5N1, although the avian flu is not an effective person to person, but its high toxicity, together with the influenza virus mixtures, it can not ignore the two variants of the problem that may arise.

Only 5% of patients over 51-year-old

After the outbreak of H5N1 avian influenza in Hong Kong 1997, there is an only bird infected case in recent years. But the Mainland, Vietnam and Indonesia, while human still been infected. In addition, the "New England Journal of Medicine" published about United States a total of 41 patients with data analysis of 642 patients from three months up to 81-year-old range, over 40% is young people of aged 10-18, only 5% patients aged over 51 years of age. In addition to their symptoms of fever and cough, the one quarter who were suffered from diarrhea and vomiting symptoms, so in addition to prevent the spread of droplets, the virus can also spread through the feces, the patient used towels, sheets and blankets will be droplets and fecal contamination with a virus. Recent data showed that the spread of swine flu can be symptoms from the illness to illness the day before the seventh day, but the researchers pointed out that the young, people with low immunity, and seriously ill patients, and its broadcast time may be longer affected, at present, experts are still studying the spread of the virus in patients and there is no conclusion right now.

When should wash you hands?

Bacteria is easy expose to Hand

If you dont' wash the hands after contact with pathogens, it is easy to spread the disease. Therefore, hand hygiene is the primary condition for the prevention of infectious diseases, wash hands with liquid soap or alcohol solution anxious hands disinfection, hand hygiene can be maintained. Under normal circumstances, such as the hands when no dirt can contain 70-80% alcohol solution anxious hand.

When hands should be clean:

1) before contact with eyes, nose and mouth
2) before eating, after using the toilet
3) hands were contaminated respiratory secretions (for example: sneezing, coughing, after)
4) have had contact with the public object (for example: escalator, lift buttons, etc.)
5) after touch with animals and poultry

Canada break H1N1 pig flu DNA gene

WHO will decide the vaccine production volume next week, they estimate States orders at least 600 millioin pieces.

Pig flu (Human H1N1 flu) threaten the whole world recently, the second wave will erupts after the autumn, all countries are hurry up to develop the vaccine.

Canada obtained the breakthrough on 6-May-2009, the leading countries to completes the new flu virus gene sorting, it was helpful to develop the vaccine.
In order to produce mass volume of this new flu vaccine, there is a need to reduce the common seasonal flu vaccine production volume. WHO will hold a meeting to discuss the decision on 14-May-2009.
The Canadian microbiology laboratory announced that, they has completed three viral samples of the complete gene sequence analysis. They already upload the gene atlas to the international gene database.

All scientist in the word can start the research at once , grasps the viral's operation mechanism and research the virus source. It is helpful on the vaccine development work and estimated that the vaccine can be produce in early November 2009.

What is the difference between seasonal influenza, avian influenza, swine influenza and an influenza pandemic?


Influenza viruses are commonly circulating in the human and animal environment. Different strains can cause illness in humans, bird and pigs.Seasonal influenza is caused by influenza viruses that are adapted to spread in humans (human influenza). Humans have some natural immunity to the strains that are in common circulation, and this immunity can be boosted by immunisation with a seasonal influenza vaccine.Avian influenza is caused by influenza viruses adapted for infection in birds. Similarly, swine influenza is caused by influenza viruses adapted for infection in pigs.These illnesses all elicit the same respiratory symptoms in their hosts. Sometimes, humans and animals can pass strains of influenza back and forth to one another, such as when humans become ill with avian or swine influenza, usually from direct contact with animals who are ill.Mixing of human and animal influenza viruses can lead to the development of changed viruses with the ability to cause infection and spread in the human population. There may be little or no immunity in the human population to these new viruses.An influenza pandemic is defined as a new or novel influenza virus that spreads easily between humans. When new influenza viruses are introduced into the environment, humans don’t have any natural immunity to protect against them. Therefore, there is a risk that that new influenza viruses could develop into a pandemic if the virus passes easily from human to human.

H1N1 Swine Flu vaccine - Tamiflu and Relenza can really cure?





As Tamiflu and Relenze is the official vaccine to cure the H1N1 virus and Swine Flu, but pharmacists warned people not to take such anti-flu drugs without a doctor's approval.


More than 450 pharmacies around Hong Kong began offering free preliminary swine flu screening yesterday. But does thos anti-flu drugs really can help?


WHO reported that the oseltamivir resistance to H1N1 influenza, especially in North America, Canada, the United States, is still very high (Over 90%).90% of the Government stockpile anti-flu drug is Tamiflu, if we believe that the statistical data stored against the so-called swine flu medicine, will it become the vacuole rounds?It is completely useless! Why our Government has never mentioned these figures?

We should really think that, in order to fight against swine flu epidemic, rather than rely on government, it is better, hope for the best, do a good job in our own personal hygiene, and strengthen your body. If you do so, we dont need to afraid of H1N1 or Swine Flu!

Human Swine Influenza Background


A number of confirmed human cases of swine influenza A/H1N1 (swine flu) infection have been reported in Mexico and several other countries in earlier 2009.

Originally known to circulate among pig populations, the swine flu viruses do occasionally infect human beings. In the present international swine flu outbreak, human-to-human transmission has occured.

Injection vaccine is helpful to differentiate the pig flu

Pig flu is spreading out seriously, family doctors remind the resident to protect them, they must have seasonal flu vaccine injection. They also remind the maids employer, lets their maids have a vacation in weekdays, in order to avoid too many hirelings gather, and prevent increase infection risk.

Family doctor Dr. Kwan indicate that, although the injection seasonal flu vaccine cannot prevent the pig flu, but it can reduce the chance to infects the present flu , once pig flu spread out, it is helpful for doctors to differentiate the common flu and pig flu. The resident should wash the hands frequently, and also should wear the face mask, because “many people cough sneeze over the street”. The disinfectant rug should locate in the main entrance, and clean shoe sole before back home.

The resident must have the enough rest and proper diet, absorbs enough vitamin and the mineral substance. The employer should discuss with the maid that, lets them have a vacation in weekdays (instead of Sunday), “makes them do not gather together on Sunday, reduces the dissemination opportunity. ”

Traditional Chinese Doctor Peng indicated that, in the Chinese medicine point of view, pig flu and Sha Shitong is same diseases belongs to fever series, the symptoms including heat and the respiratory tract influence, if the resident want to prevent the infection, they must starting from build up good body immunity, by the way, many Chinese medicine decoction also has the power to protect the lung, like the "玉屏風散"and "生脈飲".

"Pig flu" the name misleading public grades


[Newspaper news] The international expert and the World Health Organisation yesterday to state, the whole world uses the pig flu now (Swine Flu) the name was not correct, because the major part case only had nothing to do with with the pig, the name misled the public to think actually this got sick from the animal infection, the request rectifies names is the H1N1 flu virus or North America flu. The online publication "ProMED" state that, this virus for armor HIN1, combined with the pig flu the gene, but the flu only infects the humanity, the patient has not contacted the pig only to catch an illness, therefore should be called the H1N1 flu virus. The World Health Organisation also mention, it still only has not temporarily separated this kind of virus in the animal like pig, therefore it is not suitable called the pig flu, so they request to take erupts the area of the name as the North America flu (North American influenza).

10 Ways to Prevent Swine Flu or Pig Flu Infection

Personal Behaviour in Public

(01) Cover mouth and nose when sneezing in order to maintain good personal hygiene.

(02) Do not kiss with your lovers, friends, strangers or animals.

(03) Do not shake hands. Wash hands immediately even you do.

(04) Wear face maskif you do or do not have respiratory infection symptoms.

(05) Do not visit crowded places with poor ventilation.

Personal Health

(06) Take proper diet, avoid smoking, having regular exercise and regular exercise to build up good body immunity.

(07) Do not touch your nose, eyes or mouth without washing your hands first with soap and water. Wiping hands with alcohol swabs can also help to kill the virus.

(08) Shower immediately after returning from public area and change into clean clothes. Remember to wash hair and the spectacles.

(09) Keep home environment clean, and cleanse furniture properly.

(10) Consult your doctor promptly if you develop respiratory symptoms, early treatment is the key.

What is Swine Flu?

Swine Flu is caused by Swine Influenza Virus(referred to as SIV). SIV refers to influenza cases that are caused by Orthomyxoviruses endemic to pig populations. SIV strains isolated to date have been classified either as Influenzavirus C or one of the various subtypes of the genus Influenzavirus A.

Swine flu infects people every year and is found typically in people who have been in contact with pigs, although there have been cases of person-to-person transmission.
