He said it is a transboundary animal disease and also zoonotic (spreading from swine to humans). He said that people of five to 45 years of age were the most affected by swine flu. He said people should wash hands with soaps frequently besides taking other preventive measures.

Prof Dr Muhammad Nawaz said that over 100 human diseases have their origin in animals and the people handling animals have to take extraordinary precautionary measures against such zoonotic diseases.

Dr Masood Akhtar Sheikh said that so far only two cases of swine flu had been reported in Pakistan while many cases of this disease had been reported in India.

He stressed that awareness should be created among the people about the disease and preventive measures were the only way to eradicate the swine flu disease.

Dr Fayyaz Ranjha assured participants that all preventive measures had been taken against swine flu and there was no need to worry about the swine flu. Dr Mahmood Mukhtar of Department of Microbiology, UVAS, spoke about "Influenza Virus Genomics".

Aulakh said the government was well aware of its responsibilities and had taken all measures to stop swine flu spread. He said education and health were the top most priorities of the Punjab government.
