What is the Swine Influenza anyway?

Swine influenza, or "swine flu", is a highly contagious severe respiratory disease of pigs, caused by one of several swine influenza A viruses. The virus is spread among pigs by direct and indirect contact, and asymptomatic carrier pigs. These outbreaks in pigs can occur year round, with an increased incidence in the autumn and winter in milder temperature zones. Many countries routinely vaccinate the swine populations against swine influenza.

What are the implications for humans?

Outbreaks and human infection with swine influenza have been reported. Often the symptoms are similar to seasonal flu, but reported cases range from mild, asymptomatic infection to severe pneumonia, resulting in death.
