The swine flu Indiana – how serious was it?

With the threat of a swine flu pandemic, one wonders about the Swine flu Indiana – how serious was it? If reports are to be believed, public health authorities saw the influenza virus affect people all across the US much later than the usual season. In Indiana, the flu virus spread rapidly and though the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in the state reported six swine flu related deaths in the US at that time, there were only four cases of hospitalizations in Indiana itself.

The majority of those who were infected in Indiana were young adults or children, and 63 out of the cases were between the ages of 5 and 24 years. There were no cases of people above the age of 65 who had the disease. The swine flu has a nature that is unpredictable and therefore it is wise for those who already have complications and other diseases like asthma and diabetes etc, pregnant women and those with less immunity to be vigilant and take all precautions against infection.

Reports and studies prove that one cannot take a chance with this flu virus. As not much is known about this disease except that this type of virus is asymptomatic during the incubation period and thus the symptoms are not detected. The incubation period lasts from 2 to 7 days.

One has to make sure that personal hygiene is maintained at a very high level. All surfaces that are most likely to get contaminated can be sprayed with the Smittstopp spray. This spray adheres tightly to any surface material and works on the principle of “electrostatic attraction”.

After the spray dries, it leaves behind a thin layer of positively charged cationic polymer that attracts the negatively charged anionic microorganisms (viruses and bacteria). These viruses get stuck to the sprayed surface like flies to flypaper, and get instantly killed. This prevents the viruses from breeding and spreading into the environment.

The Smittstopp spray can be sprayed on clothes too. Tests have proved that the effect of the spray does not wear off even after twenty washes. One can even spray the facemask inside out to double the protection against the swine flu virus. Public areas like toilets, malls, hotels, restaurants, schools and educational institutions, libraries, parks and industrial offices can be sprayed with the Smittstopp spray.

Health authorities should make the spraying of all taps, switches, railings, knobs and handles etc in places that can be easily infected to keep the people safe.

Personal items like keys, cell phones, purses and handbags etc can also be sprayed. Common cleaners or sprays should not be used over the Smittstopp sprayed surfaces because they are negatively charged and will automatically neutralize the effect. The spray is also a cleaner that cleans the surface of all dirt, fats and grease etc, and a disinfectant as well.

Reading reports on the swine flu Indiana and other states all across the US tell us that Global Authorities have taken the threat of a pandemic seriously and recommended strict precautionary measures to curb the outbreak. Symptoms of the flu virus include fever, cough and sneezing, sore throat, acute breathing and respiratory disorders, diarrhea, body ache, headache, persistent vomiting, fatigue etc. Early detection and good medical care increases chances of total recovery.
