Once dreaded, swine flu is now considered to be the part of seasonal influenza, thanks to its vaccine which has reduced its status from ‘pandemic creating flu’ to ‘normal flu’.
In 2009, the world, and especially Southeast-Asian countries got shook due to the flu, as it originated there, and later spread in the world. In Australia, almost 200 people lost their lives due to this ghastly virus, and even now also Health Authorities have predicted that swine fly would remain dominant throughout the winter, and therefore, Australians should be ready to tackle it.
With the vaccine, influenza strand has become an everyday type of flu virus, according to SA's Chief Medical Officer Professor Paddy Phillips, though it could be a serious influenza strand. She further asserted earlier when this influenza came, they did not have vaccine for it, but now they have a vaccine, and are ready to face any severity.
Prof. Phillips said the common house of swine flu is the schools and childcare centres, and it is difficult to keep children immune from it. The main reason of spread in schools is due to running noses, poor hand hygiene and coughing and sneezing. But now, parents can get their children a dose of swine flu vaccine, but she also said the increase or decrease in the number of cases depends on the effectiveness of the vaccine.
