Beware Swine Flu

Be Happy with Swine Flu Awareness..
Pandemic (H1N1) 2009; WHO advice on face masks
Current Pandemic Phase 6

Evidence suggests that the main route of human-to-human transmission of the Pandemic (H1N1) 2009 virus is via respiratory droplets, which are expelled by speaking, sneezing or coughing.

Any person who is in close contact (approximately 1 meter) with someone who has influenza-like symptoms (fever, sneezing, coughing, running nose, chills, muscle ache etc) is at risk of being exposed to potentially infective respiratory droplets.
Mask use has been found useful for Health care workers, those caring for patients at the home and most importantly anyone who is sick and must leave home. This allows others to identify a symptomatic person, keep their distance and prevent the sick person from dispersing the respiratory droplets. Mask use should be combined with other general measures such as frequent hand washing and cough etiquette.

Stop Ragging!

Nearly a month after it launched a countrywide (india) 24x7 toll free anti-ragging helpline (18001805522), UGC has decided to rope in NGOs for monitoring to ensure ragging victims get justice.

UGC has invited applications from NGOs, which have been active in the field of monitoring activities in the social sector on a pan-India level, to take up the role of watchdog to curb ragging. Selected NGOs will be involved in providing information on non-compliance of SC’s directives to statutory bodies as well as violation of regulation of UGC and other statutory council to regulatory bodies for ragging.
