Swine Flu: Test Yourself

Swine flu is also called swine influenza or pig flu. It is an infection caused by the influenza virus infecting swines. By 2009, there were several strains of influenza viruses known such as H1N1, H1N2, H3N2, etc. As the name suggests the virus primarily infects pigs. It affects the respiratory tract of the pigs causing common flu-like symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, fever, loss of appetite, etc. The pig is isolated and while proper care and rest is given to the pig, precautions are taken to avoid the spread of the flu to other animals and neighboring farms. Although the flu virus is transmitted from pigs to humans, it is never transmitted through pork-based food products.
