Although social distancing and the use of antiviral medicines can be partially effective at slowing pandemic flu spread, vaccination remains the most effective means of pandemic influenza control, the authors conclude.
Every individual is equally exposed to swine flu when it spreads in the air, but some people may have a high degree of risk towards this virus.
This high-risk group includes; heart, liver, and kidney disease patients, neurological disease patients, pregnant women, and the people over the age of 60.
There have been reported numerous fatalities due to swine influenza.
The biggest reason which has made it so dangerous is the carelessness of humans while they closely interact with pigs.
Present Situation: The most recent swine flu of 2009 that infected the humans in several regions was not a virus transmission from pigs to humans; but from humans to humans.
In August 2010, the World Health Organization (WHO) officially announced that swine flu has been completely subjugated and will not affect humans in any part of the World.They are part of the federal government’s Models of Infectious Disease Agent Study Network, an effort funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences at the National Institutes of Health.Funding for the study came from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.Vaccination increases population-level immunity and lowers the effective reproductive number of the virus, which results in two main effects: slowing the spread of infection and reducing the height of the pandemic peak; and reducing the overall illness attack rate, hospitalizations and mortality.Other key findings in the study: Longini and colleagues are considered among the world’s leading disease modeling experts. Ira Longini and colleagues emphasize that a combination of factors—the availability of an effective vaccine to protect people against pandemic H1N1, coupled with the timing of the outbreak—will determine how quickly the pandemic can be slowed.An aggressive vaccination program that first targets children and ultimately reaches 70 percent of the U. population would mitigate pandemic H1N1 influenza that is expected this fall, according to computer modeling and analysis of observational studies conducted by researchers at the Hutchinson Center's Vaccine and Infectious Disease Institute. 11 issue of Science Express, the early online edition of the journal Science, the study—which includes the first estimate of the transmissibility of pandemic H1N1 "swine" flu in schools—recommends vaccination first for: These groups include health care and emergency services personnel and those at risk for medical complications from pandemic H1N1 illness such as persons with chronic health disorders and compromised immune systems.The biggest victim of Swine Flu -- Youngsters: Swine flu does not infect every age group with the same sternness, severity, and complexity; its biggest victims have always been the young adults.This thing can be evidenced from the fact that most of the fatalities caused by swine flu in Mexico, Northern Ireland, Philippines, Japan, Taiwan, U. A, and many European countries were of youngsters (Tanaka, Niki, & Kokaze, 121).Diagnostics for Swine Flu infected humans: As swine flu has very common and minor symptoms, it is diagnosed just as the way a common fever and respiratory tract infections are treated and diagnosed.First of all, the infected individual is asked to have some lab tests.
