Swine Flu Update: US Declares Public Health Emergency -- Gallaway Safety Offering CDC Recommended N95 Respirator Face Masks for Swine Flu Protection
Pittsburgh, PA, April 28, 2009 --(PR.com)-- The United States declared a public health emergency to deal with the increasing threat to citizens of swine influenza A (H1N1) virus infections, more commonly known as swine flu. The state of emergency was declared after detection of 40 cases across New York, California, Kansas, Texas, and Ohio.

Protection Against Swine Flu
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta recommends several ways to stay healthy and free of swine flu, including covering your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze; washing your hands frequently; and avoiding touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Note that you cannot get swine flu from eating pork or pork products.

N95 Respirator Usage
You should avoid coming within six (6) feet of any person who is or may be sick with swine flu. If you must come within close contact, the CDC recommends you wear face masks or surgical masks, preferably an N95 disposable respirator for protection against swine flu. N95 respirators snugly cover your mouth and notes to filter out small particles around the edges that other face masks cannot.

You should remove and discard N95 Respirators immediately after contact with any potential persons infected with swine flu and then wash your hands with soap and warm water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

A History of Swine Flu
Swine flu cases have been relatively rare in the United States recently, with only one case reported each year or two. The virus began spreading more rapidly beginning from December 2005 to January 2009, with the most recent outbreak occurring within the last several days. Like the more common seasonal flu, cases of swine flu can range in severity from mild to serious. The CDC cites the death of a previously healthy 32-year-old pregnant woman in Wisconsin in 1988 and an outbreak in New Jersey in 1976 that caused one death and several cases of serious illness among over 200 people infected.
