Good hygiene can prevent the spread of germs in a most effective way to slow the spread of diseases.

  • Ensure everyone washes hands regularly with soap and water
  • Clean surfaces regularly to get rid of germs
  • Use tissues to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze
  • Place used tissues in a bin as soon as possible

Those who are likely to become seriously ill are:

  • Chronic (long-term) lung disease, including people who have had drug treatment for their asthma within the past three years,
  • Chronic heart disease,
  • Chronic kidney disease,
  • Chronic liver disease,
  • Chronic neurological disease (neurological disorders include motor neurone disease, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis),
  • Suppressed immune systems (whether caused by disease or treatment),
  • Diabetes,
  • Pregnant women,
  • People aged 65 or older, and
  • Young children under five

Common Symptoms

The symptoms of swine flu are expected to be similar to the symptoms of regular human seasonal flu and include fever (a high body temperature of 38°C/100.4°F or over), fatigue, lack of appetite and coughing. Some people may also suffer due to runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.

Antiviral drugs are prescription medicines (pills, liquid or an inhaler) that fight against the flu by keeping flu viruses from reproducing in your body.

If you get sick, antiviral drugs can make your illness milder and make you feel better faster. They may also prevent serious flu complications. For treatment, antiviral drugs work best if started soon after getting sick (within two days of symptoms).
