Swine Flu Cannot Be Contained, the WHO Says

Apr 28, 2009
The World Health Organization raised the pandemic alert level to four, as swine flu has already spread around the world. Officials say that it is too late to contain the spread of swine flu and countries should focus on prevention and treatment.

Raising an alert level to phase 4 means that swine flu now can be transmitted from human to human and the virus is able to sustain community level outbreaks. This indicates a significant risk of pandemic. If the situation becomes worse, the WHO may raise the alert level to phase 5. The declaration of phase 6 indicates the global pandemic.

Meanwhile, the outbreaks of swine flu were registered in Mexico, the US, Canada, Spain and Scotland with numerous cases suspected in other countries like New Zealand, France and Israel. Mexico is believed to be ground zero for the swine flu epidemic, with the most number of deaths from swine flu.

The WHO officials said that it may take 4 to 6 months to develop vaccines against swine flu and another several months before vaccine will be available for use.

The symptoms of swine flu resemble those of a common flue and include fever, sore throat, cough, chills, headache and joint aches, fatigue and in some cases vomiting and diarrhea.

Swine flu is transmitted through sneeze or cough, and by touching contaminated hands, or surfaces.

There are several ways you can avoid swine flu infection:
  • Wash hands frequently

  • Stay away from people who are sick

  • Cover your mouth and nose if you cough or sneeze

  • If you feel seek, stay at home and inform your health care provider

Brothers and sisters, Samuel Diego is my name, I live in Spain. I want to quickly tell everyone here on how I was cured of Spanish flu by herbal doctor Uwadia Amenifo with his herbal medicine. A year ago I suffered from high fever, and I was treated by my doctor. But I noticed that after some time my fever came back and my immune system was degenerating. So I went back to the hospital and my doctor confirmed it that I have Spanish flu he said to me that I am going to die because it cannot be cured totally. So I began to pray to God to please save my life from this Spanish flu. I was placed under watch and my sister was running up and down looking for cure. So she meant with a man who told him that he knew of a herbal doctor who is very good in preparing herbal medicine, and also he have cured him before of AIDS. So my sister quickly took the contact details of the herbal doctor and contacted him. Then the herbal doctor told my sister that he can cure Spanish flu, Black Death, Typhus, Cholera, Smallpox and AIDS. So my sister immediately made the necessary arrangement with him, and there after he prepared the herbs and sent it to me here in Spain I took it just as he instructed my sister to give it to me and behold it worked like magic. His herbs cured me, and today I am totally cured. So I am here to tell all suffering from the following disease and virus such as: Spanish flu, Black Death, Typhus, Cholera, Smallpox and AIDS that a messiah has come to save us all.

Always look at things from a <a href="http://bjkzhtp.com">difnereft</a> prospective:It may be good to get sick once in a while:Get sick so you have a chance to recalibrate your anti-bodies! Annual Training Exercise for your blood cells.Force you to take a break from your normal routine we all need that to balance our life.Get sick so you have a chance to control your diet for a while you may be eating too much. Let the digestive system rest for a little while (tune-up time)We are so busy and so tie up with our normal routine, and so focus on so-called make a good living (or making $$). A lot of times we lose focus of what is the primary objective to be on earth to live a good life, right? But we end up ruin our bodies because we don't eat right (like instant noodle); get into arguments because we lost out temper, forgot how to forgive; driving ourselves crazy/get mad for some trivial stuff with no reason; we stay up all night and doesn't allow the body to rest; keep looking back at those that we cannot changed anymore IS that something wrong here? It is good to get sick so you are being forced to slow down and think about all these while you are in bed. To allow you to slow down and look around, to appreciate and to realize, there are so many people who walk next to you, behind you, but beyond your eyesight, who care about you. You are not alone.Get well, when you are done with your thinking and get control of your life ..get sick is good sometimes .Don't we all need to be positive anyhow?
