Nepal should be at high alert for Swine flu

With the World Health Organisation (WHO) designating swine influenza outbreak as a public health emergency of international concern and raising the pandemic alert to level 4,Nepal should be alert at Tribhuvan International Airport and all other entry ports for identifying persons with suspected infection who could be arriving from the affected countries including Mexico, the US, the UK, France, Canada and New Zealand.

As per WHO reports, till Monday the United States government has reported 40 laboratory confirmed human cases of swine influenza A(H1N1), with no deaths. Mexico has reported 26 confirmed human cases of infection, including seven deaths. Canada has reported six cases, with no deaths, while Spain has reported one case, with no deaths.

Not only all passengers coming from these countries should be screened but also those who have arrived in Nepal till ten days back should be tracked down and asked to report to the nearest medical center. Any person suspected to have influenza should be isolated at the airport and put on treatment.

Tribhuvan International Airport should have additional medical and paramedical staff for identifying suspected cases.

A round-the-clock call centre under the Department of Epidemiology and Disease Control, Nepal should be attending calls from the public regarding reporting of influenza-like illness.

The Nepal Government should also advice those travelling to affected areas to curtail non-essential travel.

Its a great concern for all of us . The dioherrea claimed more than 150 lives . In this situation , from jajarkot districts farwestern districts how free are they from lives risks . Constitution of Nepal has guaranteed right to health as fundamental , what should the executive goverment doing right now .
Management is Art & Science of Getting Law as Results , this process results in Sanjibalisation .

Here in Maharsthra, one school student died by swine flu on the last Monday. She was 14 years old and she was on a ventilator for the past many days at an ICU in a hospital in Pune. This is first swine flu death in India. I hope, our country is still safe but its time to take care to everyone.
Thanks N regards,

Neha Shahi
