Who's at Risk?
The speed that Simian Flu symptoms manifest depends on your health, level of exposure and age. If you see someone who shows signs of illness, it's best to stay away.
Could We Contain an Outbreak?
We are working for an international policy to defend against an outbreak. Studies suggest population density, distance from airports, infection control practises and geography all affect the spread of infectious diseases. These and other factors need to be addressed by governments globally.
Know the Symptoms
Speed of symptoms can differ, but generally 48 hours after infection a person will experience severe headache, sore throat, weakness, fever, joint pain. After 96 hours the symptoms include nausea, vomiting, red eyes, raised rash, chest pain and cough. After 7 days symptoms escalate quickly to stomach pain, severe weight loss and bleeding from nose, mouth and eyes.
OPHA is committed to controlling and reducing the spread of Simian Flu. We offer the general public information, registration for vaccines and emergency contacts for those who suspect they have come in contact with Simian Flu.
