I also heard that a Somali father with his 4 doughters from sweden were caught in cairo airport yesterday after infected with swine flu virus.
In diagnosis think of the easy first.

Thanks  Dear Dr. Mahdi, for this information, me also  I heard some somalian people in kenya affected this disease, particularly in Somalia regions,  so how can we prevent it  to transmit to Somalia? I hope all health professionals  to participate their ideas for  discussion.

Dr.Hersi, thanks for your comment.

We can't tell if the disease already crossed the border but what we are capable of is to educate our readers about the symptoms & signs of the disease. (Our prevention is health education).
Because we don't have the swine flu prevention measures & even we can't control the outbreak if happens.

Check the UN's Voice: Poor nations need $1 bln to combat swine flu

Regarding the Swine Flu Education please read the following articles & print out to your community:
