What You Need to Know about 2009 H1N1 Influenza (1)

Dear All,

Last weekend I had hard time. On Saturday and Sunday night I could not sleep at all. My little daughter had high fever, 104.8 degree Fahrenheit. Actually she had just healed two weeks ago. My eyes could not put away from her to make sure she was fine. I never stopped praying and changed the cold small towel on her forehead. She was absent in two days and yesterday on Wednesday, she had come back already to school. I thank to God she is fine now.

Yesterday when I helped Kid Writing lesson in her class, I heard from her teacher many students were absent because they were sick.

If you live whereever you are, either in USA, Europe, Asia, Australia or Africa, etc, you must be aware as you may have heard a new influenza virus, called the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus was first identified in USA in late April 2009. The virus has caused illness ranging from mild to severe, including hospitalizations and deaths in adults and children. Many children have gotten 2009 H1N1 infection and there have been large outbreaks in some schools across the country. The Centers for Disease Control and Preventions's (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices has recommended that children and young adults aged 6 months through 24 years be vaccinated against this virus as soon as the vaccine available.


Vaccination is the best way to protect you and your child from this potentially serious disease. So, what do you know so far about this dangerous influenza??

In this post and in several upcoming posts, I will provide the important information I got from Pennsylvania Department of Health.

WHAT IS 2009 H1N1 INFLUENZA?
* It was earlier called Swine Flu, a type of flu caused by new strain of influenza virus. Because it has spread to many countries, it has been declared a pandemic influenza strain.

Like other flu viruses, it spreads from person to person through coughing, sneezing, nasal secretions, and sometimes through handling objects contaminated with the virus.

Signs of the type of this influenza can include: fatigue, chills, fever, caughing, sort throat, sneezing and muscle aches. Some poeple also have diarrhea and vomiting

Most people recover within a week but some people get pneumonia or other serious illnesses. Some people have to be hospitalized and some die.

HOW IS 2009 H1N1 DIFFERENT FROM REGULER (SEASONAL FLU)?
* Seasonal flu viruses change from year to year, but they are closely related to each other.

People who have had prior infections usually have some immunity to seasonal flu viruses.

This virus is a new virus strain. It is very different from seasonal flu viruses. Most people have little or no immunity to this new virus.
