Philippines not quite prepared for flu attack

The latest figures of flu attack and the number of dreadful deaths clearly show that Philippines is not quite prepared to face such attacks and natural calamities. It is no secret that in the recent years it has withstood attacks of many flu strains and the most dreadful of them were the attacks of H5N1 avian flu in 2005 followed by H1N1 in 2009.

And since the virus keeps circulating in the air all through the year, it is evident that questions on the effectiveness of the administration and the, system has been asked many a times. Some people within the system have answered this query in a cautious 'yes' and have also predicted that the virus will soon mutate itself.

But accurate prediction of the same is not possible. Moreover, because many of the Filipino’s are indifferent to the whole idea, it makes the matters even more dangerous. They have many a times connected it to common cold while the symptoms are quite different.

Common cold is quite mild as compared to flu attacks and can be managed through proper sleep and intake of fluids. Flu on the other hand takes more than two weeks to attack properly.
