Swine Flu Q&A

According to the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), swine flu is a respiratory disease typically found in pigs that is caused by Type A Influenza (H1N1) virus. While it is not typical for humans to contract swine flu, human infections occasionally do happen.

According to the CDC, human infections with swine flu were first reported in late March, early April 2009, in Southern California and San Antonio, Texas. Numerous cases have appeared in Sacramento, Carmichael, and Woodland as of the date of this blog.

The swine flu is contagious according to the CDC and can spread from one human to the next. It is not known for sure how the swine flu is spreading, but flu like viruses are normally spread through two different mechanisms:

1). Air transmission via droplets expelled from the mouth when an infected person talks, coughs, or sneezes. These droplets remain airborne for some time and can then be inhaled by another person.

2). Droplets from an infected person will eventually make contact with environmental surfaces (such as kitchen countertops, tile floors, computer keyboards, tile showers to name a few). The virus can then be spread from those surfaces if another person touches the contaminated surface and then touches his or her own eyes, mouth, or nose before washing his or her hands.

How Can Your Protect Yourself Against Swine Flu?

1). Wash your hands. Thoroughly wash your hands throughout the day with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, making sure to scrub underneath the finger nails and the back of the hands. If soap is not readily available, use and alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

2). Disinfect surfaces regularly with a disinfectant. Liberty Floor Solutions can properly clean your hard surface areas with solutions that will kill the Type A (H1N1) virus.

3). Avoid close contact with people who are sick. And if you yourself are ill, stay at home to avoid spreading germs to those around you.
