You will suspect it's swine flu when you notice the following symptoms:

  • A cough
  • Fever with chills
  • A sore throat
  • A runny nose
  • Weakness
  • A headache
  • Breathlessness

If any of these symptoms are present and are not subsiding after medications taken for common flu, you need to get the following tests done immediately:

1. Haemogram with platelets

2. Urine (Routine + Microscopic)

3. Throat swab

4. Chest X-ray

5. H1N1 Test 

Remember this is a communicable disease. If there are patients suffering for swine flu around you, take necessary precautions:

  • Wear a mask.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • Weak your hands thoroughly, esp with an alcohol-based hand wash.
  • Avoid contact with eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

Stay healthy and happy.
