Author: UPLOADED BY-ADMIN, N. A. SINGHAL, S. M. VIJAYENDRA SWAMY
Abstract: Swine flu is more dangerous than terrorist because it can affect the life of general people and kill more people in period of last three month than those who can affected by terrorists attack. So in order to define Swine flu the word “BIO TERRORIST” is most appropriate for it. On 11th June 2009, World Health Organization (WHO) declared influenza A (H1N1), also known as swine flu, as a pandemic. As per WHO report, there are more than 177457cases of infection, including 1462 deaths till 6th August-2009 across the world. In India, till 16th August 2009, about 1556 positive cases of H1N1 with Twenty Five deaths were recorded, was still in the early days of the outbreak. Like other influenza, Swine flu virus also able to produce human to human transmissions and as a result WHO predicted that, the swine flu virus will infect a third of the world's population if it continues to spread at its current rate. As a pharmacist, we know that people who have contracted the new A (H1N1) virus have experienced influenza-like symptoms (such as sore throat, cough, runny nose, fever, malaise, headache, joint/muscle pain) and recovered by using antiviral drugs. An antiviral drug for influenza is inhibitor of neuraminidase such as Oseltamivir and Zanamivir. Proper use of drugs and to prevent development of resistance towards virus is in hand of pharmacist. Pharmacist knows that Vaccine is the useful tool to fight against such an infectious disease, even though till dates no vaccine available in market. Other preventive measures include drugs; social distancing and personal hygiene can also help to control such disease.
Keyword: Influenza A (H1N1), human-to-human transmission, antiviral, vaccine.
