About Influenza Pandemics:
Instances of pandemic flu, the global outbreak of a new strain of the influenza A virus, are irregular and tough to predict. Unlike seasonal flu, which occurs regularly and with readily available vaccines, a pandemic may not allow for a large supply of vaccines in its early stages. A pandemic flu also spreads more easily, as few people have immunity to the virus. Preventing transmission through standard infection control such as sanitizing, disinfecting surfaces, and preventing physical contact with those infected with the virus. This can be seen in the masks worn during the 2009 H1N1 Swine Flu pandemic, and which are still often used during seasonal flu outbreaks.
Facts About Influenza Pandemics:
- Pandemic influenza spreads like the normal flu virus: by contact with droplets made by coughing, sneezing, or talking near a person.
- Few people have immunity to pandemic influenza.
- Predicting groups at risk of complications from pandemic flu is difficult.
- Limited stockpiles of pre-pandemic flu vaccines and flu antiviral medications are maintained by the United States government.
- Public health responses are behavioral in the early stages. Social distancing, masks, and hygienic products are commonly suggested during a pandemic.
