What is Swine Flue?

Swine Flu is influenza A H1N1 Virus. It is just like any other common influenza virus but, the big difference is that the current swine influenza A (H1N1) virus has components of pig and bird influenza viruses in it, so that humans don’t have any immunity to it. That is what made it more likely that it would become a pandemic virus (have the ability to cause a global outbreak) because it could easily spread from person-to-person.


Symptoms of swine flu infections

  • Fever, which is usually high, but unlike seasonal flu, is sometimes absent
  • Cough
  • Runny nose or stuffy nose
  • Sore throat
  • Body aches
  • Headache
  • Chills
  • Fatigue or tiredness, which can be extreme
  • Diarrhea and vomiting, sometimes, but more commonly seen than with seasonal flu
