Key Facts about Swine Influenza (Swine Flu)

we have received many emails from you regarding the swine flu, thank you for your support. We have collated the infomation that you have provided, and would like to share the most commonly asked questions here. you can read up more on the Swine Flu :
more info Crisis GOV SG -> here
US CDC -> here

What are the symptoms of swine flu in humans?

The symptoms of swine flu in people are similar to the symptoms of seasonal influenza. An early symptom is high fever, and this is followed by cough, sore throat, runny nose, and sometimes breathlessness a few days later.

How can human infections with swine flu be diagnosed?

To diagnose swine flu, a respiratory specimen would generally need to be collected within the first 4 to 5 days of illness (when an infected person is most likely to be shedding the virus). However, some persons, especially those who are immuno-compromised may shed the virus for 10 days or longer.

What medications are available to treat swine flu infection in humans?

There are four different antiviral drugs that are licensed for use in Singapore for the treatment of influenza: amantadine, rimantadine, oseltamivir and zanamivir. While most swine flu viruses have been susceptible to all four drugs, the most recent swine flu viruses isolated from humans are resistant to amantadine and rimantadine. At this time, the US CDC recommends the use of oseltamivir (Tamiflu®) or zanamivir (Relenza®) for the treatment of infection with swine flu viruses.

Does influenza vaccination help in preventing swine flu?

There is no vaccine yet to protect humans from swine flu. The seasonal influenza vaccine is unlikely to protect against H1N1 swine flu viruses. Tamiflu is not a vaccine, but an antiviral drug for the treatment of infection with swine flu viruses. MOH does not recommend Tamiflu prophylaxis for the public.

Protecting Yourself

What precautions can I take to protect myself and others against the flu?

Practise good personal hygiene and be socially responsible by:

a. Washing your hands regularly and thoroughly with soap and water, especially before touching your eyes, nose or mouth;
b. Turning quickly away from anyone near you if you are about to cough or sneeze, and do not cough or sneeze at him;
c. Covering your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. Dispose of the tissue properly in the dust bin after use;
d. Avoiding crowded places if you are unwell and wear a surgical mask to cover your nose and mouth;
e. Staying home from work or school when you are sick; and
f. Using a serving spoon when sharing food at meal times.

Also, leading a healthy lifestyle helps to build up your immunity and protects you against infection.

a. Eat a balanced diet, including plenty of fruit and vegetables.
b. Be active. Do 30 minutes of physical activity at least 5 days a week.
c. Learn to relax and have enough sleep and rest.
d. Do not smoke.

Members of the public who have travelled to affected places and who develop respiratory illness with fever (Temperature > 38 degree C) within seven days after their return should put on a surgical mask and seek medical consultation immediately. They should also disclose their travel histories to their doctors.
