On April 26, 2009 the United States declared a public health emergency due to a potential swine flu pandemic caused by a new strain of virus which can be treated only with Tamiflu and Relenza.
Here are several steps to prevent the spread of the swine flu virus:
There is no vaccine against swine flu, but the CDCs (Center for Disease Control) around the world are working to produce one. More cases surfaced from Canada to New Zealand, and Mexico, the outbreak's epicenter, raised the number of deaths to 149, and the number of cases to more than 1,995.
If you have flu symptoms, stay home from work or school to avoid spreading the disease. Do not return until two days after your symptoms are gone.
Go to the hospital if you have severe symptoms such as difficulty breathing. If your symptoms are mild, stay home to avoid spreading the virus to others at the hospital.
Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze, and wash your hands frequently.
Masks may be recommended for health care workers, family members and others who come in close contact with swine flu patients, but there is no need for the general public to wear masks.
It is safe to eat properly handled pork. Cook it to an internal temperature of at least 160 degrees.
