And then they took me to the (Anna Regina Police) Station. And when I reach there, they told me to get up and come out de vehicle, but I couldn’t ah get up; so they drag me into the station and put me on a bench to sit down,” Courtman detailed.He said the Police took away all of his belongings and were about to place him in the lockups.

first_imgAccording to the Department of Health, swine flu is an airborne disease that spreads in the same way as seasonal flu, through coughing and sneezing. It cannot be caught by eating pork. Anyone with moderate or severe symptoms should also seek medical attention immediately. People who are suffering from the symptoms should see their doctor. 19 August 2009 South Africa has set up a hotline, as well as a dedicated e-mail address, for public queries about H1N1 influenza, or swine flu.The hotline number is 0861 364 232 (or 0861 DOH CDC)The e-mail address is: The hotline will be operated by trained personnel on communicable diseases, supported by experts from the Department of Health. As of 19 August 2009, South Africa had over 3 400 confirmed cases of swine flu, while the number of deaths in the country related to the pandemic stood at six. The provinces with the most infections were Gauteng, with over 1 800 cases, followed by the Western Cape with over 800 cases and KwaZulu-Natal with over 350 cases. Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi announced last week that South Africa would be stepping up its response to the swine flu pandemic with the launch of major awareness campaigns countrywide.What is swine flu? The World Health Organisation (WHO) says illnesses such as existing cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, diabetes and cancer are considered risk factors for swine flu. Source: BuaNews “Asthma and other forms of respiratory disease have been consistently reported as underlying conditions associated with an augmented risk of severe pandemic disease in several countries,” the WHO said in a recent statement. Symptoms can be divided into “mild”, “moderate” and “severe”. Mild symptoms include a runny or blocked nose, fever, muscular aches and pains, a general feeling of unwellness and coughing. “The overwhelming majority of people have mild symptoms and will not need any specialised medical care, and we believe nothing should happen to them,” Health Minister Motsoaledi said last week. “Such symptoms should be treated as with other influenza-like symptoms.” It is treatable with antiviral medication, which is available in South Africa but may only be used under a medical doctor’s direction. However, people with chronic heart or lung disease, pregnant women, or people living with HIV/Aids, should seek medical care immediately if they develop even mild symptoms. Transmission can be avoided by coughing or sneezing into a tissue or hanky; by washing one’s hands regularly; and by avoiding crowded areas, especially if people have symptoms of the flu. Moderate symptoms include mild symptoms as well as shortness of breath, chest pain, persistent vomiting and diarrhoea and signs of dehydration. Swine flu: ‘don’t over-react’ Risk factors According to the WHO, recent reports suggest obesity may be another risk factor for severe H1N1 infection. Pregnant women also seem to be at higher risk of contracting the disease. Severe symptoms include mild and moderate symptoms as well as signs of respiratory distress, blue lips and other parts of the body, and severe drowsiness and loss of consciousness.last_img read more
