Date:4/28/2009

Medical Director & Infectious Disease Expert Available to Comment on Swine Flu Outbreak and AmeriCares Response

STAMFORD, Conn., April 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AmeriCares, a nonprofit humanitarian aid organization, is sending medical and infection control supplies to help several Texas health clinics treat and prevent the swine flu. The shipments include face masks, medicines and other vital supplies. Some clinics report patients with flu symptoms while others are taking precautions to prevent the spread of the disease.

"AmeriCares is watching this outbreak very carefully," said Dr. Frank Bia, AmeriCares Medical Director and an expert in infectious disease. "As swine flu infects more people, it can adapt and become more dangerous, like a hurricane picking up strength over warm water."

In addition to Texas, AmeriCares recently sent a shipment to Mexico which included medicines, face masks for infection control and nutritional support for people who have been infected. The medicines included antibiotics to help fight the flu, fever and pain reducers to control symptoms and an inhalant to help people with breathing problems.
