The first case of swine flu was detected in a small town in Mexico around March 2009.Since then, the rate of infection and deaths has been steadily rising. In June 2009, the World Health Organization announced that the disease had reached global pandemic level. In July, the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention predicted that if a vaccine is not made available soon, forty percent of the world population could contract swine flu and several hundred thousands would die of it. Of course, effective treatment for swine flu is available.
This flu is a lethal combination of swine, avian and human influenza viruses. It has never been seen before in humans and it is expected to hit the world even harder in the coming winter months. It is possible that the current flu virus could mutate into a deadlier virus. As of now, the symptoms visible in people suffering from this flu are the same as seasonal flu, like fever, running nose, cough, body ache, headache, chills and fatigue.
Vomiting and diarrhea can also be noticed in some cases. A throat or nose culture can determine the virus but only at government approved laboratories. Those who have underlying conditions like asthma or heart problems are at a higher risk of contracting swine flu. Very young children, pregnant women and elderly people also comprise of the high risk group.
There is no single effective treatment for swine flu, except symptomatic treatment. Some over the counter medication is available which is effective in shortening the duration and severity of swine flu. These are available only by prescription and everybody doesn’t have access to these drugs because of limited supply. If one member of a family gets swine flu, he should be kept in isolation and every other member should take care to wash hands regularly. The surfaces which are touched many times by different members of the family should be cleaned with a disinfectant.
Here is where Smittstopp comes to our rescue. It is a unique disinfectant available in a spray form. It is formulated with the latest Swedish invention, cationic polymers. These polymers are positively charged and adhere to all surfaces. Bacteria, virus and micro organisms are negatively charged. They are attracted to the positively charged polymer only to die. Smittstopp serves the dual function of cleaning and degreasing surfaces and also killing virus and bacteria. The polymer layer formed by spraying Smittstopp is invisible and water resistant also.
It would be wise to use Smittstopp in clinics, hospitals and other public places like public transport, public toilets, theatres, malls and schools. All surfaces like door handles, toilet flushes, office desks and other surfaces which come in contact with many people everyday should be treated with Smittstop. It can prove to be the best preventive measure against swine flu.
It is a good idea to avoid people who are coughing or sneezing and maintain utmost personal hygiene. When people with the flu cough or sneeze, the cough drops released can pass on to others and can infect their respiratory tracts also. So it is also advised to wear face masks to avoid breathing infected air. If we spray Smittstopp on the masks, the protective quotient of the masks increases considerably and also makes the mask good enough to be used more than once. Prevention is always better than cure. So instead of looking for an effective treatment for swine flu, it will be better to start using Smittstop.
