“Prevention is better than cure – Influenza Awarenes”
Babies grow up fast, soon my little one will be joining play school. Like all moms, I have my share of fears and anxieties pertaining to the new start; for my baby getting affected by contagious diseases like cold, flu etc.
I recently happened to attend an Influenza Awareness program which put a lot of my doubts and worries at rest. The meet was an eye-opener for all the mothers present there. The session was interactive and informative with experienced doctors like Dr.Mukesh Gupta (Gynecologist/ Obstetrician) and Dr. Uday Ananth Pai (Pediatrician). Also in the meet was Celebrity Mom Genelia Dsouza and she shared experiences from her motherhood journey as a mom of two.
Influenza and flu are common terms used interchangeably and often confused with common cold.
While both (the common cold and influenza/flu) are viral in nature affecting the respiratory system of our body they are JUST NOT the same.
