AH1N1 Virus Now in the Philippines (First Case)

Friday, May 22, 2009

Well sportsfans! There it goes! Our first case of the AH1N1 Influenza Virus has just been reported. I was watching the local news "BANDILA" when Henry Omaga Diaz mentioned this on his report. Funny how we thought we would never have had any case but look at this one now. We thought we were not even vulnerable since we did not have avian flu last year. Sorry folks, it was a 10 year old kid (girl) who came from Canada via US that carried this virus and eluded the thermal scanners at the airport. She never had a fever when she was in the plane but she was rushed to the hospital after complaining with the same symptoms as with the dreaded swine flu.

Every one should now take certain precaution since the DOH did not release the location of the patient who is now in the RITM in Muntinlupa. Well how about the people who were actually inside the plane when she came here? Do we also need to worry about that? How about the people at their home? If the DOH plans not to tell us, then everyone is at risk. They should at least let us know so we can stay away from the same place where she's been right? People are really not thinking much these days. Arrrrgh!

Some of you may not know the symptoms but it is quite similar to the symptoms of regular human seasonal influenza that include fever, lethargy, lack of appetite and coughing. Some people with swine flu also have reported runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

Now for Effin's sake if you feel sick with the symptoms above, get to the hospital or lock your self in a bank's vault so no one could touch you... jeeze... if you guys try self medication, you would probably die you know!

Get to the hospital quick!
