...pandemic or not, the question that to ask... A few years back, massive panic spread throughout the world especially in Asia when the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome or SARS scare broke out. Massive panic buying of masks was rampant on the streets of major cities. While other protective measures were enforced as an epidemic was feared to ensue. Today, all the hooplas over and the dread have subsided. But are we correct in our complacency. If the Avian flu hits, are we prepared or has everyone gone lax and assumed that it will not reach the threat that scientists has warned us of the previous years' There is an argument that it is not anymore a question of whether it will proliferate into a worldwide pan...

...Pandemic Flu al affiliation Pandemic Flu There is a big gap between the lifestyle of early 20th century and 21st century. The Nation’s Health website reveals that the life expectancy in early 20th century was short. Perhaps this was attributed to communicable diseases that were spreading easily from one person to another. For example, pneumonia, tuberculosis, influenza, and diarrhoea are some communicable diseases that were spreading and killing people. Non-communicable diseases and accidents also contributed to a significant number of deaths. Diseases such as heart attack and cancer are some communicable diseases that killed people in early 20th century. Accidents resulted from unregulated... ...

...Pandemic Flu Pandemic flu is a global decease outbreak which spreads mainly among people who have little immunity. There are many dangerous viruses which can be the source of pandemic flu, but the most dangerous one is virus A the proteins of which have transformed into H5N1 virus which is known today as avian flu or bird flu. The virus is carried by wild birds and can be rather dangerous for domestic poultry which can in turn affect humans. H5N1 don't currently infect humans, but the virus is constantly changing, and in some cases it can make people sick. About half of infected humans died: as the virus doesn't always cause humans sickness there is no vaccine which could be able to struggle... ...

The impact was huge in very short time interval; 8000 people became sick and 700 died across the globe. The rapid spread of the viruses is favoured by the established modes of transmission, which are droplet and contact. As no drug of choice is still available therefore, symptomatic treatment is provided to the patients, which consists of antibiotics, antiviral, corticosteroids, supplemental oxygen and immunoglobulons.

Influenza viruses are highly unstable, genetically adaptable, and well prepared to elude host defenses. The disease spreads easily from person-to-person, causing serious illness, and can encompass the whole country and even the world in very short time. Avian (bird) flu is caused by influenza A viruses that occur naturally among birds.
