Dubai Swine flu hotline

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
