Baba Ramdev is not only who suggests the yoga and ayurvedic medicine for preventing the effect of Swine flu. Swine flu patients and survivors are also taking on the virus by networking on the web, updating each other on their fight against Influenza A (H1N1) and advising others on how to avoid it.
TOI reported: Shanku Das, one of the netizens on the social networking site Orkut, wrote: "Washing your hands frequently helps in avoiding H1N1. Don't keep touching your nose or mouth, use a handkerchief when you cough or sneeze and observe basic hygiene practices."
Besides the Internet, SMSes are also doing rounds among students and others on precautionary measures to be adopted to avoid swine flu.
"Use a face mask, use alcohol based sanitizers to wash hands, drink boiled water, have citrus fruits and vitamin C rich food and try avoiding public toilets," read one of the SMSes being circulated.
The 2009 Flu outbreak is a new strain of H1N1-type influenza, commonly referred to as "swine flu". This strain mutated out of other strains of swine flu and other influenza viruses.
Swine influenza (H1N1 flu, swine flu, hog flu) is an infection by any one of several types of swine influenza virus. These strains of swine flu rarely pass from human to human. http://www.newsanalysisindia.com/post/Swine-flu-of-hereditary-democracy.aspx
Symptoms of zoonotic swine flu in humans are similar to those of influenza and of influenza-like illness in general, namely chills, fever, sore throat, muscle pains, severe headache, coughing, weakness and general discomfort.
Declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO), over 1,000 people have tested positive for Influenza A(H1N1) in India. It has claimed 15 lives in the country, 11 of which have been in Maharashtra alone.
