IMCR Alerts On H3n2 Virus

In the past several days, more hospitals around the county have reported an increase in flu

cases. The H3N2 subtype of the influenza virus has been widely spread for the past two to three

months, according to recent data from the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). It

claimed that the illness normally lasts from five to seven days, the IMA said in a statement,

When influenza viruses that typically infect pigs are discovered in humans, they are referred to

as viruses. Influenza In terms of fever, leukopenia, and C-reactive protein, an H3N2

infection was more severe than an A H1N1 or B illness. Most H3N2v infections have been linked

to extended contact to pigs during agricultural shows. Although there has sometimes been a

small amount of human-to-human transmission of this virus in the past, H3N2v has not yet

been linked to any persistent or widespread community transmission. Its probable that

persons harbouring this virus may continue to have occasional illnesses and perhaps small




 Fever.

 Chills.

 Cough.

 Nausea.

 Vomiting.

 Throat pain.

 Body and muscle pains.

 Diarrhoea.


Antibiotics like Atreycin and Amoxiclav, among others, should not be consumed regularly

according to the IMA. Resistance to antibiotics develops as a result of overusing them.

Antibiotics wont work anytime there will be an actual use of them according to the IMA.


Whether its the H3N2 virus or another strain, treating a simple case of seasonal flu entails

controlling symptoms until you get well. How to accomplish this includes:

 Obtaining lots of sleep

 Consuming enough liquids

 The use of over-the-counter drugs to treat symptoms including fever, headaches, and

aches and pains

 In some instances, doctors may recommend an antiviral drug like oseltamivir (Tamiflu).

 Antiviral medications can help minimize the length of sickness and avoid complications if

used within 48 hours after the onset of flu symptoms.
