H1N1 virus found in pigs cause swine flu. Due to the human body not being immune to the virus, it becomes dangerous when it gets transferred onto humans.
Previous and this winter, the effects of the H1N1 pandemic have been visible across the globe.
Swine flu can spread from a person to person as it is a respiratory track infection.
There are various symptoms of swine flu like diarrhea, headaches, high fever, tiredness or fatigue, body aches, vomiting and runny nose and cough.
People, especially kids, can be badly affected by the virus as they do not have immunity to the virus and some adults also fall in this category.
Once a person is diagnosed, they can be treated with special drugs and most sufferers do experience very severe symptoms.
People who are infected should stay away from others as the disease gets transferred from person to person and others should make an attempt not to come in contact with infected people.
People think that pork consumption will get swine flu but it is not so rather people who are in contact with pigs might get the flu.
