The Ministry of Health have set up a hotline to deal with possible Dubai Swine Flu cases
So far, we seem to have escaped the Swine Flu pandemic sweeping the world, but The UAE Ministry of Health are planning ahead.
Officials have set up a hotline for anyone who is worried they might be suffering from the disease to call.
Symptoms of swine flu infections can include: • fever, which is usually high, but unlike seasonal flu, is sometimes absent • cough • runny nose or stuffy nose • sore throat • body aches • headache • chills • fatigue or tiredness, which can be extreme • diarrhea and vomiting, sometimes, but more commonly seen than with seasonal flu
Signs of a more serious swine flu infection might include pneumonia and respiratory failure.
Anyone with concerns should call the Ministry of Health on 04 396 6000 and ask to be put through to the Swine Flu hotline

I totally do not agree with you, I have to travel to US and my family had great concer about my visit, I called almost 10 times to get detailed information, and everytime I got a response.
Did you try again or did you think once is the end of the world to put your coment against an out standing effort of the UAE government?
