Swine Flu Cases Confirmed in Maine

Swine Flu Cases Confirmed in Maine
 
AUGUSTA – Governor John  E. Baldacci and Maine Center for Disease Control Director Dr. Dora Anne Mills  discussed the steps that are being taken to minimize the impact of the H1N1 (swine) flu in Maine at a State House Press Conference today.  On Wednesday morning, three cases of H1N1 (swine flu) were confirmed in Maine. All three people are adults and a recovering in their homes. Two are from Kennebec County and one resides in York County.
 
“It is important for the citizens of Maine to prepare for this as they would any other emergency situation,’’ the Governor said. “We have weathered storms before, whether it be an ice storm, or a blizzard. There are important steps we can all take to minimize the impact of this virus.”
Governor Baldacci urged Mainers to become familiar with the information made available by the State and Federal Centers for Disease Control. Personal checklists are available at http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/habits.htm?s_cid=swineFlu_outbreak_003
Antiviral medication is arriving from a federal stockpile later this week. In addition, the Governor has authorized the purchased of $2.175 million of antivirals, which will provide Maine with the maximum amount of coverage if H1NI spreads.
 
Dr.  Mills re-iterated the need for citizens to practice proper respiratory hygiene, including the following steps: 
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or sleeve.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hands cleaners are also effective.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • If you get sick, stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to avoid infecting them.
“If you become sick with the symptoms of swine flu during this period, you should call your health care provider with the information about your symptoms and where you traveled,” Mills said.
The Governor has planned a meeting later today with the Emergency Response Team and members of the Cabinet to discuss the latest information available.
