Hands, Foot And Mouth Disease Infections Philippines

The infections surfaced, Philippines was infection confimed

No, it's not pig's, it is hand, foot and mouth disease and not foot and mouth disease.

"Ang sa tao ay hand-foot-and-mouth disease. Ang sa baboy ay foot-and-mouth disease," clarified Dr. Eric Tayag, director of the Department of Health's National Epidemiology Center.

Just to prove that the two disease are not the same is that pigs don't have hands, it's all foot. Corny joke but true.

HFMD, according to experts is caused by viruses that belong to the enterovirus genus (group). This group of viruses includes polioviruses, coxsackieviruses, echoviruses, and enteroviruses.

Anyways, this disease surfaced as the "queen of all media", youngest sister of president Benigno 'Noynoy, PNoy' Aquino III, Kris Aquino told to her twitter updates that her two sons were infected with hands, foot and mouth disease.

Kris also is having a fever but is not infected with the disease. The three are currently in isolation until the next week.

Doctors said that the disease is highly contagious as it can spread even on unsuspicious infected vapors.

The season for this disease is summer, which the country is having right now.

Whatever happens to Kris Aquino, it became a national issue. Now, everyone's aware of this infection. Well, at least we knew that it's not the pig's isn't it?

I hope Kris especially the kids get well soon.
