INTRODUCTION TO INFLUENZA A/H1N1
What is Influenza A/H1N1 Virus?
Influenza A/H1N1 is a respiratory disease of
pigs caused by Type A Influenza Viruses that
causes regular outbreaks in pigs. These viruses
do not normally infect humans, however, human
infections can and do happen. Most commonly,
these cases occur in persons with direct exposure
to pigs.

INTRODUCTION TO INFLUENZA A/H1N1
How does Influenza A/H1N1 spread?
  • Influenza viruses can be directly transmitted
    from pigs to people and from people to pigs such
    as in pig barns and livestock facilities.
  • Flu viruses are spread from person to person
    through coughing or sneezing of people with
    influenza (by droplets)
  • Sometimes people may become infected by
    touching something with flu viruses on it from
    droplets and then touching their mouth or nose.

You can not get swine flu from eating pork or
pork products as long as they are properly
handled and cooked.

INTRODUCTION TO INFLUENZA A/H1N1
What surfaces are most likely to be sources of
contamination?
  • Germs can spread when a person touches
    respiratory droplets from another person or
    surfaces (ie. Desk, chair, wall) and then touches
    their own eyes, mouth or nose before washing
    their hands.
  • Droplets from a cough or sneeze of an infected
    person also move through the air, and may
    possibly be inhaled.

INTRODUCTION TO INFLUENZA A/H1N1
How long can viruses live outside the body?
Some viruses and bacteria can live 2 hours or
longer on surfaces like cafeteria tables,
doorknobs, and desks.
Frequent hand washing will help reduce the
chance of getting contamination from these
common surfaces.

INTRODUCTION TO INFLUENZA A/H1N1
Are there any medicines to treat Influenza A/H1N1?
Yes. Antiviral drug Oseltamivir (Tamiflu) for
the treatment and/or prevention of infection with
swine influenza viruses, which should be by
prescription by a doctor. Medical consultation
must be done immediately after appearance of any
symptoms of flu as the medicines are most
effective if started within 48 hours of the
symptoms.
