Details about the swine flu origin tell us that there is still speculation and doubts as to how the swine flu originated. It is said that the swine flu epidemic broke out when a four year old boy was infected in an industrialized American Mexican area. The boy was one of the earliest cases of the chimera virus and the fact that he lived close to a pig farm confirmed that the disease was contracted due to the strain of swine influenza virus that caused the outbreak.
All around the world, people have contracted the swine flu on account of pig farming. But it is extremely rare for the virus to be transferred from person to person after contracting it from an animal. Results of experiments and tests that were conducted to trace the origins of the new pandemic showed that the new strain of swine flu was circulating among swine for a long time before it was transmitted to people. It has been the lack of systematic surveillance in swine that has allowed this strain to go undetected for a long time.
The new strain contained bits from the human, pig and avian strains of flu. However, studies suggest that it was the swine that were really to blame and all the segments that the virus is made up of come from them. Researchers have discovered that the proteins or antigens found in various samples are similar to one another – a fact that may make it possible to create a vaccine against the new virus. Early warning signs did not work and the virus circulated and evolved in swine long before it was detected with the infection of the first person. It is also feared that as influenza strains of different species are naturally mixed in swine, a more dangerous strain could develop and be transmitted back into humans.
The most important factor during a swine flu outbreak is to keep the environment clean and uncontaminated. The Smittstopp spray is excellent for this. When sprayed on any type of surface material it bonds tightly and leaves behind a thin coating of cationic polymer that is positively charged that in turn attracts (through “electrostatic attraction”) the negatively charged anionic microorganisms (viruses and bacteria). Once these viruses get stuck to the sprayed surface, they are instantly killed, before they get a chance to breed or spread.
The Smittstopp spray offers the user a long term protection. It can be sprayed on clothes and the effect does not wear off even after 20 washes. Furthermore, it removes all dirt, fats and grease from the surface. The spray should be used on all personal items to reduce the risk of infection, like hand bags, purses, keys, cell phones, items of jewelry etc. Government offices, public places like offices, schools and institutions, public libraries, bus and train terminals, malls, hotels and restaurants etc should be sprayed to keep the deadly microorganisms out. Places that are likely to be easily infected are taps, switches, knobs, handles, railings, table tops etc.
No common cleaner or spray should be sprayed on top of the Smittstopp spray because these cleaners are negatively charged and this would neutralize the effect of “electrostatic attraction” caused by the positively charged cationic polymer.
Details about the swine flu origin do not tell us how the new strain of virus was transmitted to people and why it is that some are more prone to it than others. The fact that the younger and healthier seem to be harder hit by the virus than the older people. This could be because the older people have developed greater immunity to the virus.
