What is swine flu l.jpg

What is Swine Flu

  • Swine influenza virus (referred to as SIV) refers to influenza cases that are caused by Orthomyxovirus endemic to pig populations. SIV strains isolated to date have been classified either as Influenza(virus C or one of the various subtypes of the genus Influenza virus A)

  • In the United States the H1N1 subtype was exclusively prevalent among swine populations before 1998; however, since late August 1998, H3N2 subtypes have been isolated from pigs. As of 2004, H3N2 virus isolates in US swine and turkey stocks were triple reassortants, containing genes from human (HA, NA, and PB1), swine (NS, NP, and M), and avian (PB2 and PA) lineages.

Swine influenza flu l.jpg

Swine Influenza (Flu)

  • Swine Influenza (swine flu) is a respiratory disease of pigs caused by type A influenza that regularly cause outbreaks of influenza among pigs. Swine flu viruses do not normally infect humans, however, human infections with swine flu do occur, and cases of human-to-human spread of swine flu viruses has been documented.

Swine flu present status l.jpg

Swine Flu-Present Status

  • From December 2005 through February 2009, a total of 12 human infections with swine influenza were reported from 10 states in the United States. Since March 2009, a number of confirmed human cases of a new strain of swine influenza A (H1N1) virus infection in the U.S. and internationally have been identified. An investigation into these cases is ongoing.

Swine Flu 2009

  • In late March and early April 2009, cases of human infection with swine influenza A (H1N1) viruses were first reported in Southern California and near San Antonio, Texas. Other U.S. states have reported cases of swine flu infection in humans and cases have been reported internationally as well.


Update status swine flu l.jpg

Update - Status Swine Flu

  • The United States Government has reported seven confirmed human cases of Swine Influenza A/H1N1 in the USA (five in California and two in Texas) and nine suspect cases. All seven confirmed cases had mild Influenza-Like Illness (ILI), with only one requiring brief hospitalization. No deaths have been reported.

Swine Flu in Mexico

  • In the Federal District of Mexico, surveillance began picking up cases of ILI starting 18 March. The number of cases has risen steadily through April and as of 23 April there are now more than 854 cases of pneumonia from the capital. Of those, 59 have died. In San Luis Potosi, in central Mexico, 24 cases of ILI, with three deaths, have been reported.


Swine flu and virus l.jpg

Swine Flu and Virus

  • Swine Influenza (swine flu) is a respiratory disease of pigs caused by type A influenza virus that regularly causes outbreaks of influenza in pigs. Swine flu viruses cause high levels of illness and low death rates in pigs. Swine influenza viruses may circulate among swine throughout the year, but most outbreaks occur during the late fall and winter months similar to outbreaks in humans. The classical swine flu virus (an influenza type A H1N1 virus) was first isolated from a pig in 1930.


Cause by reassortment of different strains l.jpg

Cause by Reassortment of different strains

  • Like all influenza viruses, swine flu viruses change constantly. Pigs can be infected by avian influenza and human influenza viruses as well as swine influenza viruses. When influenza viruses from different species infect pigs, the viruses can reassort (i.e. swap genes) and new viruses that are a mix of swine, human and/or avian influenza viruses can emerge


Swine flu differs from human flu l.jpg

Swine Flu differs from Human Flu

  • The H1N1 swine flu viruses are antigenically very different from human H1N1 viruses and, therefore, vaccines for human seasonal flu would not provide protection from H1N1 swine flu viruses


Out breaks among pigs l.jpg

Out breaks among Pigs

  • Outbreaks among pigs normally occur in colder weather months (late fall and winter) and sometimes with the introduction of new pigs into susceptible herds. Studies have shown that the swine flu H1N1 is common throughout pig populations worldwide, with 25 percent of animals showing antibody evidence of infection.


Present swine flu strains l.jpg

Present Swine Flu strains

  • At this time, there are four main influenza type A virus subtypes that have been isolated in pigs: H1N1, H1N2, H3N2, and H3N1. However, most of the recently isolated influenza viruses from pigs have been H1N1 viruses.


How man is exposed l.jpg

How man is exposed

  • Most commonly, these cases occur in persons with direct exposure to pigs (e.g. children near pigs at a fair or workers in the swine industry). In addition, there have been documented cases of one person spreading swine flu to others.


How swine flu presents in humans l.jpg

How Swine Flu presents inHumans

  • The symptoms of swine flu in people are expected to be similar to the symptoms of regular human seasonal influenza and include fever, lethargy, lack of appetite and coughing. Some people with swine flu also have reported runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea


Is the eating pork infects l.jpg

Is the eating Pork infects ?

  • No. Swine influenza viruses are not transmitted by food. You can not get swine influenza from eating pork or pork products. Eating properly handled and cooked pork and pork products is safe. Cooking pork to an internal temperature of 160°F kills the swine flu virus as it does other bacteria and viruses


Close proximity with pigs spread the infections l.jpg

Close proximity with PIGS spread the Infections

  • Influenza viruses can be directly transmitted from pigs to people and from people to pigs. Human infection with flu viruses from pigs are most likely to occur when people are in close proximity to infected pigs, such as in pig barns and livestock exhibits housing pigs at fairs. Human-to-human transmission of swine flu can also occur.


How swine flu spread among pigs l.jpg

How Swine flu spread among Pigs

  • Swine flu viruses are thought to be spread mostly through close contact among pigs and possibly from contaminated objects moving between infected and uninfected pigs. Herds with continuous swine flu infections and herds that are vaccinated against swine flu may have sporadic disease, or may show only mild or no symptoms of infection.


Seek emergency medical care if in children l.jpg

Seek emergency medical care.IF -in Children

  • In children emergency warning signs that need urgent medical attention include:

  • Fast breathing or trouble breathing Bluish skin color.Not drinking enough fluids

  • Not waking up or not interacting

  • Being so irritable that the child does not want to be held

  • Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough

  • Fever with a rash


Adults need attention if present with l.jpg

Adults Need attention if Present with

  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath

  • Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen

  • Sudden dizziness

  • Confusion

  • Severe or persistent vomiting


Diagnosis l.jpg

Diagnosis

  • To diagnose swine influenza A infection, a respiratory specimen would generally need to be collected within the first 4 to 5 days of illness (when an infected person is most likely to be shedding virus). However, some persons, especially children, may shed virus for 10 days or longer. Identification as a swine flu influenza A virus


Cdc helps in diagnosis l.jpg

CDC helps in Diagnosis

  • Requires sending the specimen to CDC for laboratory testing as many laboratories in Developing world do not have facilities


Drugs which are effective in swine flu l.jpg

Drugs which are effective in Swine Flu

  • There are four different antiviral drugs that are licensed for use in the US for the treatment of influenza: Amantidine, rimantadine, oseltamivir and zanamivir. While most swine influenza viruses have been susceptible to all four drugs


Drugs proved resistant at present l.jpg

Drugs proved resistant at Present

  • Most recent swine influenza viruses isolated from humans are resistant to Amantidine and Rimantadine


Cdc recommends at present l.jpg

CDC recommends at Present

  • CDC recommends the use of oseltamivir or zanamivir for the treatment and/or prevention of infection with swine influenza viruses


How long can an infected person spread swine flu to others l.jpg

How long can an infected person spread swine flu to others?

  • People with swine influenza virus infection should be considered potentially contagious as long as they are symptomatic and possible for up to 7 days following illness onset. Children, especially younger children, might potentially be contagious for longer periods.


How long can viruses live outside the body l.jpg

How long can viruses live outside the body?

  • We know that some viruses and bacteria can live 2 hours or longer on surfaces like cafeteria tables, doorknobs, and desks. Frequent hand washing will help you reduce the chance of getting contamination from these common surfaces.


No vaccines to humans but available to pigs l.jpg

No Vaccines to HumansBut available to PIGS

  • Vaccines are available to be given to pigs to prevent swine influenza. There is no vaccine to protect humans from swine flu. The seasonal influenza vaccine will likely help provide partial protection against swine H3N2, but not swine H1N1 viruses.


Avoid close contact l.jpg

Avoid close contact

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.

  • Aerosols spread the virus in any environment


Stay home when you are sick l.jpg

Stay home when you are sick.

  • If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.


Cover your mouth and nose l.jpg

Cover your mouth and nose.

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick


Clean your hands l.jpg

Clean your hands.

  • Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs.

  • Hand washing proved to be best procedure in prevention of Majority of Communicable diseases.


Avoid touching your eyes nose or mouth l.jpg

Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.

  • Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.


Practice other good health habits l.jpg

Practice other good health habits.

  • Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious.

  • Unnecessary Migration of people from epidemic and endemic areas to be reduced.
