Swine Flu Virus News – Philippines

The Department of Health (DOH) on Monday said that there are still no reported cases of swine flu among humans in the Philippines.

This after the rising death toll from the Mexican swine flu epidemic that is sending a wave of panic around the world with the United States declaring a public health emergency and other nations ordering border clampdowns.

Meanwhile, Philippine airport authorities said they are prepared to prevent the entry of swine flu in the country with the use of thermal scanning procedure for inbound passengers.

Symptoms of the swine flu virus include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, and headaches.

Here are some of the steps to take to protect yourself and other people from getting the swine flu virus:

1. Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze.
2. Wash your hands often with soap and water.
3. Avoid close contact with sick people.
4. If you have flu like symptoms, see a doctor right away and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them and avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth as germs spread this way.

    for me, ang mga lumalabas na virus na yan ay kagagawan lang naman ng mga baliw na scientist. bago pa man nila ilabas ang sakit na yan, may nagawa na silang vaccine para dito. hinihintay muna nila na kumalat ito sa buong mundo para mas maraming bumili ng kanilang vaccine na ginawa. instant yaman agad sila pag kumalat ng tuluyan ang sakit na ito. dati mad cow disease tapos bird flu naman sunod SARS at ngayon naman ay swine flu.. di magtatagal ay gagawa naman sila ng virus sa fish,gulay or dogs/cats. kung totoo nga ang naiisip ko sana makarma ang mga baliw na mga scientist na ito. anyway…sigurado naman na pagnamatay sila ay sa impyerno ang bagsak nila. dapuan nawa sila ng sakit na walang lunas na hindi nakakahawa para sila lang ang magsuffer..
