Several patients have walked into the clinic this morning asking about the implications of the H1N1 flu in Singapore.
At this point in time, do not panic. This H1N1 strain does not seem to be deadly and the three people are doing well. In terms of severity, it is like the normal seasonal flu that we experience year round.
So just go about your normal life, keep a good level of hygiene, eat plenty of fruits like Kiwifruit, oranges and papaya which are high in Vitamin C to keep your body's immune system in good shape.
Of course if you just came back from US, Mexico or other affected countries and you are experiencing flu symptoms of high fever, cough, runny nose and sorethroat then seek medical advise immediately.
