Swine flu grips Poland in October
13th October 2010

Three times the number of cases and suspected cases of flu were recorded in the first week of October in Poland than in the same period last year. The majority of reported cases were diagnosed as swine flu.

Between October 1-7, 15,750 cases or suspected cases of flu were registered in Poland, up from 12,500 in the last week of September. Statistically, nearly five in every 100,000 Poles caught the flu every day in the first week of this month.

Meanwhile, in the same period last year, when the swine flu epidemic reached Poland, only 5,887 cases and suspected cases of infection were recorded.

“The number of cases is great, much greater than last year,” epidemiology professor Andrzej Zieliński told TVN 24.

“The A/H1N1 virus is dominant. The increase [in recorded cases] was maintained also throughout September. At the moment it is hard to foresee whether an epidemic will develop,” Mr Zieliński said.

The Chief Sanitary Inspectorate (GIS) says an epidemic is the worse-case scenario.

“We are monitoring the cases of illness. We recommend vaccinations. It is also a necessity to keep up hygiene practices and wash your hands regularly,” said Tomasz Misztal of GIS.

Last year, flu levels peaked in the last week of November, when 134,000 cases were recorded.

"The number of cases is large, much larger than last year. The dominant virus is H1N1. The increase was maintained during the whole of September. At this time, yet it is difficult to predict how the disease situation develops. It is not known yet whether the peak incidence occurs - just like last year - autumn - or winter. More will be said at the end of October, "- said in an interview with PAP national epidemiology consultant, Professor. Andrzej Zielinski.

"We must also remember that at the September onset may have affected that started the school year and children have returned from vacation. Also, doctors are more sensitive to the reporting of disease" - he added.

Panic is never wise, but the silence in the media and the medical community strongly disturbs me - says the "Policy" by Dr. Paul Grzesiowski, an expert in infectious diseases at the National Institute of Medicines.

Paul Grzesiowski Head of Infection Prevention and Infection ...According to Dr. Grzesiowskiego, compared with data for the last year in October this year fell ill with flu in Poland as much as two times more people. Flu came so earlier - it usually falls on the peak January-February. The Poles did not want to be vaccinated, perhaps as a result of last year's dispute about the effectiveness of a vaccine against the virus or the flu or so, or H1N1 swine.

Meanwhile, soon, late autumn and winter, there may be a second wave epidemic of swine flu. Particularly at risk are obese, diabetics, pregnant women and children. It is these risk groups should be covered by the first vaccination.

No more than a week will be one thousand infected people, as stated on the newspaper. As explained by Dr. Janice Mroczkowska from the clinic from the Jagiellonian University in Warsaw, Now we are dealing only with the common cold, soon will be a flu .

The clinics in Poland have already banding together before the onset of flu . Doctors are reporting that in early December will start attack of dangerous influenza viruses. Clinics are bursting at the seams, and the patients complain about the heat and unbearable pain. Not everyone, however, distrust vaccinations, and ask whether they are effective.

Patients often underestimate the flu. Do not think about complications. Among the complications are pneumonia, myocardial infarction, or inflammation of the ear, which in children may even lead to deafness.
