How long after a trip to Mexico would you be contagious with the swine virus?
Yes. I do not know.
SWINE flu..?? That would be a swine, dear (a pig)
You would not be contagious DUE TO the swine flu treatment, but you may still be contagious after having treatment, depending on when you were exposed to the virus or when you contracted the swine flu, what the treatment was, and how long it has lasted to date. Usually treatment does not cure the flu, only lessens the symptoms while your body is killing the invading virus. It typically takes your body 7 to 10… Read More
I would guess not since Swine Flu is a VIRUS and not BACTERIA
Yes, because antibiotics are not effective on viruses. The Swine Flu (A-H1N1/09 virus) is unaffected by antibiotics and would still be transmissable. Antibiotics are usually only given to someone with a virus if they have already gotten or are considered to be at risk of getting a secondary bacterial infection along with the viral infection. Antibiotics are used to kill bacteria and treat bacterial infections.
No, it is no one's fault. It is a highly contagious virus that is new and different strain no one has been exposed to before. That makes it very easily spread from person to person very quickly. But even if it could be blamed on a person or a location, it would not be the Mexicans or Mexico. The full results are not in yet from the teams investigating the origin of the new virus… Read More
Ive never met a virus that I didnt like
The way in which Swine flu affected china was that the number of people that went china decreased. This is because people were scared that they would get the virus.
The obvious answer is: During Russia's cold war they were trying to get the cold virus under control. Allowing the United States to enter the country would have prevented Russia ROM containing colds. Very similar to the swine flu and Mexico. Right now noone want to ge to Mexico until the swine flu gets controlled.
A disease, which I guess would also be a virus, except a disease isn't contagious and a virus is. Tuberculosis is passed down to you from a family member. It's genetically passed.
Yes you can. Over 100 people in Mexico have died. So I would highly recommend not going to high - risk areas like Mexico.
Yes and no. There are many different flu viruses called both H1N1 and swine flu, and this is very confusing because the same names are used for different things. In the type of swine flu that pigs get (the original "swine flu"), they are usually referring to the same virus, just called by different names. So in that sense, the answer to your question is: yes. But there are H1N1 flu viruses that pigs do… Read More
If Swine Flu has the ability to be transmitted in water would boiling the infected water eliminate it or could it be destroyed another way?
Can the swine flu virus be put in the citys water system even with all the cholorline in the water system?
If there were to be flu virus on foods, then it would be killed by heating to 167 to 212 degrees Fahrenheit (75 to 100 degrees Celsius). You can not get swine flu (Novel H1N1 virus) from eating pork. However you should always use safe handling techniques with raw meats of any kind.
No, silly bandz do not cause chicken pox. Chicken pox is caused by a virus (varicella zoster virus) that is spread from individuals who are "contagious," meaning that they are infected with the virus and can transmit it to other persons by coughing or sneezing or by direct contect with secretions from the chicken pox rash. Theoretically, it might be possible for silly bandz to be contaminated with the secretions if they are worn by… Read More
Wikiholism is contagious! Leprosy is not as contagious as laughter.
No because it's a respiratory disease... And if it did mutate and get on the pig... You are suppose to heat them up before eating them... ---- Not if the pork were cooked. Influenza virus is destroyed by heat [167-212°F (75-100°C)]. As always when handling raw meats, using normal precautions with hand washing would be important if there were swine flu virus on the meat. However, even though it is theoretically possible for a person… Read More
Only a case of influenza would be called swine flu. Influenza is a viral infection. There are no other diseases that are called swine flu other than various influenza viral infections. There is more than one type of influenza that has been called "swine flu". There is the one that only pigs get (or an extremely rare case for a human in very close contact with swine) and it is simply called "Swine flu" and… Read More
Hepatitis is contagious blood to blood. Normal sexual practices rarely are the culprit of passing the virus in the dormant stage I would assume it is verry unlikely as your blood would have a very low virus count. mine didnt event show up on the the tests I took for blood work. I found out yesterday I do have Hep C. I have to have it confirmed, but it would explain alot about the way… Read More
Probably not. While it is possible, you could easily just have a cold, regualr flu, allergies, or some other common virus. Well, it depends.. It could be just a cold, regular flu, allergies or some other virus, but since swine flu is very popular nowdays, it would be nice to check..
It is named after pigs. It originated in pigs and the virus mutated and formed a new strain that is infectious among humans.
Experts do not agree whether the virus is completely eliminated or reduced to undetectable levels so it's difficult to know if you would still be contagious.
Sometimes. Myalgia (pain in a muscle) itself is a symptom of various causes, such as injury, strain, many diseases, disorders, and infections, including bacterial or viral infections, which are contagious and the symptom of muscle pain could be called viral myalgia when the cause is a virus. In that case, the virus would be contagious. However if you catch the same virus that is causing another person to have symptoms of muscle pain, you may… Read More
Pandemic Flu Pandemic refers to contagious or infectious diseases that are usually worldwide or spread across several continents. Some examples of diseases that have caused past pandemics would be cholera, small pox, the bubonic plague, typhus, the Spanish flu, and the Asian flu. Flu refers to influenza. Human influenza pandemics, such as the 2009 novel swine flu (A-H1N1/09) pandemic, are caused by the influenza virus subtypes of A-H1N1. A-H1N1/09 is the subtype that caused this… Read More
The worst case may have been the first case with a death since little was known about the new virus at that time and a whole new plan of care and evaluation protocol was needed for each new case identified until more was known about the new infectious virus. The first person to die from the 2009 swine flu was Maria Adela Gutierrez, who died in March 2009 in Mexico. She was a 39-year old… Read More
Some would be: * Highly contagious, * symptomatically mild, * new, * novel, * pandemic, * widespread, * respiratory, * unusual, * North American, * Mexican, * sporadic, * rapidly spreading, * localized, * international, * lethal, * fatal,
The swine flu IS in Miami just as it is in probably almost every state. The swine flu was transmitted from Mexico and has brought into the states most likely because some of the people came here hoping they would be safe. The people who were infected most likely didn't know because the symptons probably didn't kick in. So the swine flu is in Miami and can get more serious soon.
If you have had a fever and sore throat, chances are that you have hand-foot-mouth disease. It is a virus that children usually get, but I think adults can get it too. It is contagious.
Not any more than it would be your fault for getting a cold and giving it to someone else. The fault, if there is to be blame assigned, lies with the virus itself. The pigs and people that get sick from the virus are not to blame when other pigs or people also get sick from the virus. I still consider pigs to be my friends.
There are so many. HIV, AIDS (they are not the same)... Syphilis. Common Cold, Swine Flu, any flu actually. Cervical cancer can be caused by a virus. The list would be very long of dieases and sicknesses caused by them. We have never been able to cure any condition caused by a virus by the way!
You could, but it is not very likely for a human to have more than one type of flu virus at the same time. Although not well understood yet, it is noted that many times there is a prevalent flu virus in a region, and for some reason, it seems to prevent another virus from getting a foothold at the same time. To be strictly correct in the answer to your question, the answer would… Read More
It would be unwise to punish the swine for having seen the fox's henhouse raid. The swine are out in the corn field again!
I recuperated from the swine flu in like 8 days.
No, he hasn't had the swine flu. If he had the swine flu it would have been all over the news since he is so popular.
On H1N1 or swine flu? Those would be 82,306 cases with 398 confirmed deaths. Considering that in the United States there were 115,378 cases with 3,433 confirmed deaths, you should be more worried to catch something in the US than in Mexico.
Yes, shingles, which is the adult version of chicken pox, is quite dangerous. Shingles is contagious to people who have not had chicken pox. They continue to be contagious until the blisters have scabbed over, having diabetes does not make it worse or more dangerous. See related links. Not to anyone who has had their bout of Chickenpox. Type your answer here... ONLY IN THE FIRST 7 DAYS WHILE THEY ARE STILL CONTAGIOUS AND YOU… Read More
Yes, swine flu (H1N1/09) is just one type of virus that gives you influenza, there are many other influenza viruses that would have the same or very similar symptoms. Other viruses that are not flu viruses can make you feel as bad as swine flu, but the way they make you feel bad and the parts of your body that are most affected by each different virus will vary. Some examples of other conditions caused… Read More
There was speculation that it may have started at an American owned pig farm in Mexico, a Smithfield Foods facility. However, the following article states that Mexico's Agriculture Department has proven it was not the original location: Press Release from the National Pork Producers Council: "Washington, May 14, 2009 - Mexico's agriculture department today said the influenza strain that now has infected almost 4,300 people in 33 countries did not originate from hogs at a… Read More
I would say swine flu because it has nothing to do with pigs,boars and others in the swine family.
Yes, discussion about the pandemic of swine flu would be a part of Social Studies.
who would even ask this. but no. no its not...
If you are asking if the government will require the body of those who die of the swine flu virus to be cremated rather than buried, then the answer is: not in the US and not in other countries that I can find through researching. The body of a victim of swine flu would be no more dangerous for handling after death than any body that succumbed of infection from other infectious organisms. You or… Read More
Contagious of what? A preserved heart is a preservative (usually formaldehyde) and human tissue. If you're thinking of pathogens, they should not be able to survive in formaldehyde. A preserved heart should not be contagious and I can't really imagine if it was, what it would be contagious with.
The best thing you can do is stay inside your house so as not to let the virus spread. Then, in the UK, you must call the NHS Swine flu phone number. REMEMBER: Catch it, bin it, kill it. In the US, call your primary care physician to find out if you should be examined by the doctor. That usually isn't necessary, though. Treat it symptomatically like you would any flu. See the related question… Read More
There is believed to possibly be some in certain demographic groups. For example, senior citizens (over 65) may have been exposed to this virus, or more likely one sufficiently similar, in the past to provide some immunity. They have seen fewer cases than they would normally have with the seasonal flu. Usually the elderly are the most affected and suffer the most deaths from influenza, but they were at much less risk than younger healthier… Read More
During the first 1-2 weeks after experiencing symptoms of mono you are contagious. Also, during the time you feel sick -- which is typically 1-2 weeks, but for some people can be more -- you are contagious. After you have mono you continue to have the virus in your body for the rest of your life. There are only rare occasions where you actually get the symptoms again. However, contrary to popular belief, mono is… Read More
I believe that would be pork.
There are several different types of the herpes virus. If located on the stomach, I would guess Chicken pox or Shingles, with Shingles being the most likely. In people that have previously had the Chicken pox virus, shingles is the reactivation of the same virus in the nerve endings under the skin. This causes a rash and blisters and is contagious to those that have not been vaccinated for Chicken pox. If it is painful… Read More
Contagious means that the infection is spread from one person to another by direct or indirect contact. This would mean that an illness you can 'catch' from some is contagious... such as influenza or an STD... but blood-poisoning or gangrene are non-contagious. List of contagious diseases: Tubercolosis Influenza Meleases Chicken pox Ring worms List of non contagious diseases: Cancer Heart disease diabetes etc.
Well, bronchitis can be a virus or a bacteria. If you have a viral version, your antibiotic will not work. So I would give yourself a couple days off of school/work to give both the puffer and the antibiotic a chance to work.
