Press Release (ePRNews.com) - MOHALI, India - Nov 04, 2016 - India’s first certified, branded & authoritative multi-city travel health clinic – TravelSafe Clinic writes about the risks that are attached with the breakout of the Avian Flu in India.
Few people know that Avian flu is also known as, ‘Bird flu, which is an infectious type of influenza that spreads among birds. In rare cases, it can affect humans. There are many different strains of bird flu virus, most of which don’t infect humans’. Though the chances of humans being affected by this disease are not common, but it is not like it is impossible. According to medical research evidence, ‘The majority of human cases of A(H5N1) and A(H7N9) infection have been associated with direct or indirect contact with infected live or dead poultry’.
Cough, diarrhea, respiratory difficulties, fever (over 100.4°F), headache, muscle aches, malaise, and runny nose – these are a few symptoms to be taken seriously during the breakout of this disease because the mortality rate is about 60% when anyone gets infected by this disease. People catch bird flu by close contact with birds or bird droppings, there is a misconception that People catch the virus from eating fully cooked chicken or eggs, which is not true – so eating fully cooked chicken and eggs during an outbreak of Avian flu is not at all dangerous.
The good thing is that, according Patrick Wilson, University of Chicago, “It’s clear that seasonal flu vaccination provides defense against more than just common strains. Everyone should be vaccinated”.
Thus, measures to stop this disease must be taken in India right now– especially in the areas where this disease has not reached by now, in order to reduce the risks attached to it. So, in order to spread more awareness about this infectious disease, more content regarding its risks has to be published because ‘Controlling the disease in animals is the first step in decreasing risks to human’.
