  • Today, we will be discussing what H1N1 Virus is, what causes the sickness, how it is affecting our society (especially in schools), and the prevention of catching the Swine Flu.
  • Why is it important to become educated about the H1N1 Virus and Swine Flu? By becoming educated about this current issue, parents and children will ultimately be able to defer death. Yes, H1N1 can and has caused deaths. The goal is for parents and students to become more aware of the sickness, to embark better health priorities. If a student or parent is more health conscious, it will defer missing school, work, and other extracurricular activities. It is important for anyone feeling sick to stay home to prevent the spread of the flu. eSchool News has reported last spring more than 700 schools from twenty-five states had to shut their doors temporarily, to stop the spread of the Swine Flu (eSchoolNews).
  • The H1N1 Virus/Swine flu is a respiratory infection, caused by an influenza virus (Mayo Clinic). The virus contains genetics from human, avian, and swine flu viruses (Mayo Clinic). In June of 2009, the epidemic had been verified worldwide (Mayo Clinic).
  • Symptoms of the H1N1 Virus/Swine Flu are: sore throat, coughing, body aches, high fevers, chills, feeling tired, diarrhea, and vomiting. If you have any of these symptoms, stay home until you are feeling better. This will prevent the spread of the flu.
  • To avoid H1N1 Virus/Swine Flu stay home if you are feeling sick, wash you’re hands thoroughly and constantly, steer clear of large crowds of people, and sick ones. These small steps will make a huge difference in the likeability of catching H1N1 Virus/Swine Flu.
  • Doctors may prescribe extra medication to relieve inflammation, open airways, and stop lung secretions (Mayo Clinic). Antiviral drugs are only prescribed for at risk patients because one’s body can build a resistance to the drug. People at risk for antiviral drugs are hospitalized patients, people with shortness of breath and flu symptoms, children under the age of five, adults sixty-five and older, and pregnant women (Mayo Clinic).
  • Many schools have been forced to close their doors, until the health of their students returns. With so many students sick and not coming to school (thankfully to stop the spread of germs), the education door is on hold. Teachers and parents fear the sickness for themselves and loved ones. The cleaning frenzy has begun, with extra hand washing and Lysol bottles ready to defeat the germs.
  • Microsoft Corp and other technology bound companies are helping education survive by providing online services for students and teachers to access. Sick students at home are able to log onto an Office Live site, where their teachers and classmates have posted notes, assignments, and other educational things. The sick students can communicate with their teacher and fellow classmates, while posting homework assignments and blogs (eSchool News).
  • Schools are discussing hosting vaccinations for the H1N1 Virus/Swine Flu at actual schools (eSchool News). Schools are discussing in depth strategies to take if students are out of school for sickness for long periods of time. These strategies include websites for at home learning, podcasts with lectures, educational DVDs, and twelve week learning packets to be sent home with students to accomplish (eSchool News).
  • To prevent further outbreaks of the H1N1 Virus/Swine Flu be prepared to get flu shots. Stay home when you’re not feeling well to prevent further outbreaks. Steer clear from sick ones, until they are healthy. Wash your hands many times a day, and keep your room disinfected and clean.
  • Now that you are aware what the H1N1 Virus/Swine Flu is, you can prevent sickness. If your not feeling well, stay home to prevent the spread of germs. Take precautions, meaning wash your hands frequently and keep your house and classroom clean. To further prevent H1N1 get the flu shot and if forced to miss school be aware of online technology learning opportunities. Most important, stay healthy and clean!
