Swine flu cases have been confirmed in Italy, Australia, Japan, South Korea, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, Germany, France, Ireland, and many more countries. This way Swine flu is capturing whole world. Even large numbers of cases are being reported in the European countries. The virus first spread in the Colombia and then captured other nations in South America. Swine flu is just spreading like the normal winter flu and that is the real problem of concern. Around 19 deaths are being reported due to the Swine flu. In US alone 244 cases of the Swine flu were reported in 35 states. So, please take the vaccination for the swine flue today to stay away from it.

Swine flu is basically an influenza observed in pigs. Transmission of the swine flu from pigs to human is very uncommon, but when come in contact with pigs suffering with the Swine flu on daily basis. Then, the chances of person getting infected with the Swine flu increases. If suppose a person suffering with the common cold or flu comes in contact with the pigs then because of his weak resistance power, he gets infected by the Swine flu. Swine flu is spreading worldwide according to the latest reports from the news sources all over the world. This illness is really making the scientist all over the world to think, to control it from the spreading. Swine flu is reported to be spread all over the North and South America.

Swine flue is a very old predator that took the life of nearly half a million Americans in 1918. That time the pigs were killed considerably to stop the outburst of the disease because no medicine was found on it. The next time Swine flu was noted in 1976, during this phase due to the medical advances the vaccine was introduced and the spread of the disease was stop. Later on the flu was noted in America again in around 2009. This year the Swine flu showed its signs again and some cases of it are noted in US. The 2009 flu outbreak in humans, known as “swine flu”, is due to a new strain of influenza A virus subtype H1N1 that contains genes closely related to swine influenza. People who work in poultry and especially with the pigs get infected initially with the swine flu. Then when these persons come in contact with the other person, the Swine flu starts spreading.

Symptoms of Swine flu in humans include body aches, sore throat, headache, fever, fatigue, and chills. Even diarrhea and vomiting are reported in some cases. Please consult the doctor immediately if you are facing any of these symptoms. Prevention is always better than cure. So, the first thing I would ask everybody is to stop coming in contact with the pigs directly. The person who works in the poultry should wear the masks whenever they come in contact with the infected pigs. This will help to safeguard the infection from the influenza. Even the vaccination against the Swine flu should be done by everybody so that it can not spread from pigs to the humans. Coughing or sneezing and people touching something with the virus on it and then touching their own nose or mouth are the main reasons how Swine flu spreads in humans.

Swine flu is never fatal in pigs, but in humans swine flu can be fatal if not treated at the initial stage. Relenza and Tamiflu antiviral drugs can be used to treat the Swine flu. Some countries that are still not affected by the Swine flu have started taking the precautions. This includes medical check up of the person whoever comes from North or South America, Europe, Africa, and Australia. Only 1 or 2 cases of Swine flu are noted in Asian countries. But, there are high chances of spreading Swine flu here. So, it would be better that they follow certain precautionary measures. In Egypt, the orders are issued to kill all the pigs so that no Swine flu can exist. Many countries are following this same style to get rid of Swine flu. I think this action is bit rude, but everything is fare to save the human race.
