Title

Swine flu pandemic- An awareness study in Bharatur city of Rajasthan.

Abstract

Swine flu caused by a strain of Influenza A virus H1N1 is an acute respiratory disease characterized by chills, fever, sore throat, muscle pains, severe headache, coughing, weakness, shortness of breath, and general discomfort.[1] An outbreak of H1N1 infection occured in Mexico in March 2009 which spread to all parts of the world in a very short period of time. WHO, in June 2009, raised its pandemic alert to Phase 6 which means that the disease had spread to more than two continents.[2] The Centre for Disease Control, USA estimated the death toll from swine flu at more than 284,000 cases worldwide. Severity of illness and fatality was more among healthy young adults.[3][4] Direct transmission of a swine flu virus from pigs to humans is occasionally possible (zoonotic swine flu). All 50 cases of zoonotic swine flu known to have occurred since the first report in medical literature in 1958, have resulted in a total of six deaths. Transmission of the disease is now human to human. Prevalence of the disease in India both in 2009 and 2010 shows that the disease peaked out in the months of August-September and November–December, 2009. The gender-wise distribution of cases has shown a male predominance [11]. Prompt action taken by the health authorities of Govt. Of India led to the containment of swine flu in the country. The infected persons were isolated, patients were categorized in A, B and C categories and treatment was given accordingly. Oseltamivir, commonly known as Tamiflu was the antiviral drug used. Laboratory testing by RTPCR method was undertaken for category C patients. Rest of the management was symptomatic. Mass awareness campaign regarding sign and symptoms and preventive measures was launched by the government.
