International and local health authorities warned yesterday that it is not appropriate, nor prudent, to assert that two of those killed in Ciudad Juarez for the influenza A/H1N1 virus contracted in Odessa and El Paso, Texas cities.

Dr. Luis G. Castellanos, an epidemiologist at the Pan American Health Organization and World Health Organization in the United States-Mexico border, agreed that "it is time to work together" to take on this new phase of influenza.

He said authorities should work hard on community education, prevention, immunization of individuals, and ensuring compliance with sanitary measures established for such conditions.

He recalled that the H1N1 is a type more in the range of viral respiratory diseases, "is transmitted by respiratory tract and can get anywhere, in any area."

"Right now the H1N1 may be in Ciudad Juárez, El Paso and elsewhere in the world because it appears climate change with the season," he said.

According to the doctor, the exact moment of contagion is not always possible to specify with certainty: "It can happen on a bridge in a mall, a bus in the street, without the person realizing."

And he reiterated: "The flu is everywhere, whether seasonal or H1N1 (which currently is seasonal)."

But how the virus is passed?

Castellanos said that only three factors must match "(1) an infected person, (2) otherwise healthy person, and (3) that both coincide at the same time so that the patient will pass the virus to her healthy."

He argued that the main route of infection is aerosol droplets expelled with secretions of patients with H1N1 to the healthy person, "a handshake, a sneeze, a laugh, among others."

Therefore emphasized in the familiar routine, "exiled sneeze with your elbow, or cover your nose and mouth with a tissue (and then dispose of it), wash your hands often with soap and water, apply antibacterial", among other measures.

"Do you know why do not we pay attention to the flu?, Lack of seriousness. In Mexico say they got sick here, what good is that? Do they want people not to fear grip come here? "He said, Lupe Martinez of the Segundo Barrio.

Martinez called attention to the level of access to vaccines, costs, and said he was unaware "if I should re-vaccinated."

"Those who suffered infection (H1N1) or been vaccinated, not contract the disease again in your life," he said, Dr. Castellanos. And he revealed: "This minimizes the occurrence of cases in the present, the risk of infection is lower."

He explained that there is a significant difference between what was experienced two years ago (2009) during the pandemic, since at the time had a higher risk of infection because they were less vaccinated.

"The H1N1 vaccine is incorporated into the bulb that is being implemented in seasonal influenza." He insisted "it is increasingly dangerous as the virus exposure becomes less able to hurt people," he added.

The pandemic H1n1 is "seasonal" is more disinformation. The H1N1 in Mexico appears to be SIGNIFICANTLY different than the H1N1 which appeared in 2009, and if so, calling it "seasonal" is utter nonsense at all levels. the flu season is ENDING in Mexico, and this season was dominated by H3N2. The timing of teh current outbreak is almost identical to the 2009 pandemic, which did NOT follow a seasonal patten. It peaked in the late spring and then peaked again in early fall, before the vaccine was available.
