A swine flu patient can be saved in time if the early symptoms of the disease are identified and treated in the early stages itself. Symptoms of H1N1 virus like cold-cough, sore throat, headache, fever accompanied by difficulty in breathing should not be ignored and the patient should be rushed to the hospital immediately. Complete treatment should be taken if found to be H1N1 positive. Prevention from swine flu is the treatment. A little alertness can save one from the disease.
