According to sources, 8 cases of H1N1 have been registered so far. There are three types of total influenza. H1N1, H3N2 and influenza B. India currently has two types of influenza viruses H1N1 and H3N2.
It is being told that this is the subtype H3N2 virus of influenza A, about which the Indian Medical Association (IMA) has also issued an advisory. In this disease, people have problems like high fever, high headache, body ache, throat pain, severe cough, cold, lung congestion.
It is advised to stay hydrated. Do not eat outside food at all and take a fluid diet. This will give relief quickly. To avoid this, people must get the flu vaccine, as well as keep a distance from those who are infected with it. Keep the hand sanitized and follow social distance, experts said.
Dr. Rajiv Jayadevan (IMA National Task Force) explains, “Having an infected disease like influenza also causes the problem that people eat antibiotics indiscriminately, while these medicines do not work in viral diseases. One of the reasons could be that people’s cough and cold are taking time to recover.”
Dr. Sneha Chawla (Pulmonologist) says that the symptoms of H3N2 are similar to corona infection. Both of these are viral infections. They are contagious. H3N2 i.e. Hong Kong flu has a bad effect on the lungs.
