Just thought I would post one statistic that will help us all understand the effect of swine flu better.

The WHO has reported that there were 162380 cases of swine flu across the world, as of July 31 2009.

The same report says that 1154 of them died.

The survival rate, if you calculate it, is 99.29%

Based on media reports, we seem to be seeing the same high swine flu survival rates in India also.

Hope this helps,

It doesn't look that bad if you compare it with the accidents, and other illness we have in India, death factor is almost same. But still why panic...?

Media responsible for hype??

Yup. Just talked with a Pediactrician mommy friend and she said the same thing and was really calm.

Oh, that's encouraging. Came across some info about a homeopathic preventive for Swine Flu but my paediatrician denied any existence of preventives.

Hello Guys...Some Info I got on Swine Flu
Indian herbs
    Tulsi can help keep swine flu away: Ayurvedic experts
  Lucknow, May 27: Wonder herb Tulsi can not only keep the dreaded swine flu at bay but also help in fast recovery of an afflicted person, Ayurvedic practitioners claim.


"The anti-flu property of Tulsi has been discovered by medical experts across the world quite recently. Tulsi improves the body's overall defence mechanism including its ability to fight viral diseases. It was successfully used in combating Japanese Encephalitis and the same theory applies to swine flu," Dr U K Tiwari, a herbal medicine practitioner says.

Apart from acting as a preventive medicine in case of swine flu, Tulsi can help the patient recover faster.

"Even when a person has already contracted swine flu, Tulsi can help in speeding up the recovery process and also help in strengthening the immune system of the body," he claims.

Dr Bhupesh Patel, a lecturer at Gujarat Ayurved University, Jamnagar is also of the view that Tulsi can play an important role in controlling swine flu.

"Tulsi can control swine flu and it should be taken in fresh form. Juice or paste of at least 20-25 medium sized leaves should be consumed twice a day on an empty stomach."

This increases the resistance of the body and, thereby, reduces the chances of inviting swine flu," believes Patel.
