EPIDEMIC OF SWINE FLU

I think everybody has already heard about swine flu which became one of the hot subjects of last discussions worldwide.

As I read (http://www.echo.msk.ru/news/588286-echo.html, no author) the pathogene of this swine flu is virus H1N1 which was exposed to mutation.

Mexico is epidemic center because the swine flu is firstly registered exactly in Mexico and for that moment the there are more deaths than elsewhere.

According to CNN News (http://edition.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/04/27/swine.flu/index.html?iref=mpstoryview), already 103 deaths registered in Mexico.

Many countries undertook some measures for protection against swine flu virus. Russia and China banned all meat imports from Mexico and Southern United States. Also, 30% of trips in Mexico were cancelled in Russia. (If you want to know more about this, I recommend you to visit the previous link.)

This is very important!!! Symptoms of swine flu include fever, lethargy, and lack of appetite, coughing, runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. (http://edition.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/04/27/swine.flu/index.html?iref=mpstoryview#cnnSTCOther1).

Meanwhile, Kazakhstan is also preparing anti-epidemic safety measures. The following quotation is from the http://eng.gazeta.kz/art.asp?aid=130901 with the link to Kazkhstan Today

“In connection with the developed adverse epidemic situation, the chief state sanitary health officer of Kazakhstan ordered to monitor the situation and strengthen anti-epidemic measures on the state frontier,” the press service informed.”

There is also interesting article about swine flu written by Juhie Bhatia on the http://globalvoicesonline.org/2009/04/27/global-health-swine-flu-threat-spreads-worldwide/
