What are the symptoms of swine flu in 2016

Currently, Russia has the highest peak of the swine flu epidemic, and according to the latest data, 134 people died in the country on February 1. Since the end of January-beginning of February is the peak of the epidemic, the figures cited above, unfortunately, are perhaps not final.

Fear of catching swine flu among Russians is so great that many citizens (even when they are healthy) find the pseudosymptomas of this disease in themselves, exaggerate any slight indisposition that naturally affects their psychological state. They become more disturbing, many are stressed. As you know, people who experience stress for a long time are more susceptible to various diseases, since immunity is reduced.

Psychologists are advised not to panic, but to study the first symptoms of swine flu and if they appear, then go to the hospital to diagnose the disease. Remember: in time, the detected disease is perfectly treated.

What are the first symptoms of "swine flu"

The most important symptom of "swine" flu is a rise in temperature up to 39 degrees and higher, which can not be knocked down. If this temperature is accompanied by a dry cough, nausea or vomiting, lethargy, body aches, headache, lack of appetite, then do not hesitate and consult a doctor. As you know, the negative consequence of "swine" flu is the development of pneumonia. A person simply cannot breathe normally, the lungs and bronchi are affected.

If you notice the following symptoms, immediately call an ambulance:

- incessant cough, fever, chest pain;

- deterioration of the general condition after recovery;

- chills, body aches and shortness of breath.

Remember, if your age is under 18 or you are over 65, you have chronic diseases and problems with immunity, then you will most likely be offered hospitalization. In no case do not refuse it.

"Swine flu" is contagious and spreads among people very quickly, but if you follow some simple rules, you can minimize the infection and avoid it altogether. So, first of all, try not to visit places where there is a large crowd of people, if this is not possible, be sure to wear a gauze bandage and change it every two hours. Wash your hands with soap and water as often as possible.Do not forget to do daily wet cleaning in the room where you spend most of the time, and also to air it.

What to do if you get swine flu

If you have found several of the above symptoms of the disease, then in no case do not self-medicate, immediately call a doctor. The fact is that the disease itself is not fatal, but it can be fatal if complications develop.

First of all, minimize contact with people, go outside only when absolutely necessary, and only in a gauze bandage. As often as possible, wash your hands with soap and cough and sneeze to cover with a handkerchief (it is better to use disposable, which can be discarded later). Before the arrival of the ambulance, observe bed rest, drink a lot of liquid, and especially freshly prepared fruit drinks.
