Swine Flu !!!!! Just need to educate People

Since last month or so everyone is hearing about the spread of the disease named after swine ( Pig ) as a swine Flu , but still not everyone has got the clear message on what it is ? . Rather media is creating hype about the number of people dying due to Swine Flu.

It is rather a disease or a virus spread to Humans from pigs which is not common in India and world over and does not always lead to Human . If spread to humans its syptoms are very common like general illness namely fever, soar throat, muscle pains, headache, coughing and general discomfort. Now these days the transmision has ocurred from person to person through virus H1N1 .

In this likely epidemic as shown by the media, people needs to know how to control the spread of this virus , not to just show how many deaths has occured due Swine Flu. If somebody is found with the similar illness is not necessary that he is carrying Swine Flu , but needs to be diagnosed and than the treatment should be done. Anti viral drugs can be used to make the illness milder and than diagnos the person for Swine flu.

In the situation like this all media should not spread a message of epidemic but should send a message of educating people about the Swine Flu and help the public to understand the situation and not rather russing to take the medicines on their own.

It rather really works to bad situation in this time if people in India specially starts taking self assesed medicines like it happned In SURAT when the word , half information about the PLAGUE was spreaded before few years back. Everyone was running after the medicine and at last due to over taking of the medicine so many people were left with reaction of the medicine.

So educate peole about SWINE FLU don't just cry about that !!!
