After Bird Flue it’s Swine Flue: India issues advisory
After the fast spread Bird Flue, and the earlier Mad Cow disease, it is now the turn of pigs; Swine Flue is sweeping the continents.
After holding high-level ministerial meeting on swine flu outbreak, the Government of India (GoI) issued a travel advisory, asking Indians to restrict visits to Mexico, US, Canada, New Zealand and France.
The health ministry called experts from National Institute of Communicable Diseases and Indian Council of Medical Research in the meeting to chalk out preliminary containment measures if the virus springs up in Asian countries.
To ensure public safety, all travellers flying into India from Mexico, US, Canada, New Zealand and France would be individually checked for flu symptoms, like fever and upper respiratory tract infection.
