Q Has swine flu infected humans before?

A: Yes. There have been rare cases since the 1950s, mostly in people such as farmers who work directly with pigs. In Europe, 17 cases have been reported since 1958. In the US, an outbreak at a military camp in New Jersey in 1976, infected over 200 soldiers, of which 12 were hospitalised and one died.


I found this on a medical website today. I thought it might help to ease some peoples minds.

Unfortunately, that is not comparing "appled to apples".

The fact is, that this flu is not an actual "swine" flu, but a conglomeration of several animal strains, including avian.

That's what has health experts concerned, the complexity of it. They were not prepared for this. It is not like other flu strains.

There is currently no known vaccine for it. The possibility of mutation is high, due to it's composition...and it attacks the healthy.

Still, this is not a reason to panic and live in fear, but all should to stay informed.
