Filipino Nurses Abroad are Exposed to Swine Flu H1N1 Virus

The Philippine government is short of issuing a global advisory to Filipinos, most especially Filipino nurses and other healthworkers, to avoid travel to countries with swine flu cases to prevent the further spread of the virus in the Philippines and other parts of the globe.  However, the migration to other countries and coming back for vacation continues everyday.

The government has advised to temporarily avoid unnecessary travel more particularly to the United States and Mexico. As of this time, no reported Filipino nationals have been infected with the virus anywhere in the world. However, the Philippine government is still concerned with the possible spread of the virus that could infect thousands of Filipino nurses working abroad.

Among the precautionary measures included in the advisory are to avoid congested areas, to regularly wash hands, consultation with a general practitioner when possible symptoms of the virus starts like coughs, sore throat, headaches and muscle pain.
