Symptoms of Swine Flu

Jun 04, 2009

What is swine flu?


The so-called swine flu represents a modified type of the common seasonal flu H1N1 type A. Every year the virus of the flu undergoes insignificant gene mutations. However, most people usually develop immunity against this virus, which helps them fight it.

This time, though, it seems that a stronger mutation of the virus had taken place. Apparently, swine flu first appeared in the organism of swine in Mexico. This new type, apart from the usual set of genes H1N1, also has a genetic animal material, unknown to people. That's why this disease has caught the scientists' attention.

Besides, it was proved that the virus can be transmitted from humans to humans, which makes it even more dangerous. More than that, it is continuously being modified, which makes it harder to create a swine flu vaccine.

What are the symptoms of swine flu?


The symptoms of swine flu don't differ much from common seasonal flu, they include:
  • fever (up to 100-104 degrees Fahrenheit)

  • strong headaches

  • cough

  • pain in the throat and in the muscles

  • sore throat

  • chills

  • general weakness

It must also be mentioned that swine flu is usually associated with diarrhea and vomiting too.

In some cases the swine flu can have such typical symptom as runny nose or stuffy nose, while in other cases often there is a distinct sensation of dryness in the nose and in the throat. Usually, a patient with a swine flu has a dry, intense cough, associated with pain behind in the chest.

What are the complications of swine flu?


Swine flu can lead to the following complications: vascular collapse, cerebral edema, the hemorrhagic syndrome or secondary bacterial infections. Serious complications might develop especially in children, old people or patients with a low immunity. The infectious period of a confirmed case of a swine flu begins from the day the manifestation of the disease and lasts up to 7 days. Children, and especially small ones, can be potentially contagious during a longer period. In the most severe cases, swine flu can even cause death.

If I suspect I have swine flu, I should


The only advice for people who suspect they have swine flu is to see a doctor as soon as possible. It is important to contact your doctor and say about your symptoms before going to the clinic, specialists report.

На самом деле ничего сложного в этом нет.Its легко запомнить, как отдельное слово, по аналогии с I- my, he his, she her, it its, we our, you your, they their, рассматривая its как вариант her или his по отношению к предметам, животным, птицам и т.п. Например: This bird is known for its inability to fly. Эта птица известна своей неспособностью летать.В варианте it's апостроф указывает на то, что это сокращение, соединяющее два слова it is = it's или it has = it's. На самом деле многое становится понятно из контекста и слов следующих за данным сокращением. Например: It's a bird. (It is a bird.) It's been a<a href="http://uummrie.com"> lelovy</a> party! (It has been a<a href="http://uummrie.com"> lelovy</a> party! )Слова then и than звучат похоже, но пишутся по разному и отличаются по значению, их нужно просто запомнить, как два разных слова.Then затем, после этого. Например: She won the first and then the second game. (Она выиграла первый, а затем и второй гейм.)Than чем. Например: He's older than you. (Он старше, чем ты.)

tso222What you guys do is brilliant. You're cnhngiag something. You don't realize it yet, but you have a kindred spirit in this society that makes someone like Jon Stewart inherently more human than Stephen Colbert, but that doesn't mean that Stephen Colbert isn't equally as good. They balance each other well. But you know deep down that it's about Stewart, the same way deep down you know it's about McCartney. Partnerships elevate us.PS: Wouldn't it be nice if YouTube encouraged me to write long
