2009 H1N1 influenza outbreak - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A article about the recent outbreak of Swine Flu.

Has anyone had it? Do you know anyone who's had it?

It seems really serious, I never want to get it.

I justheard about it on the radio 15 minutes ago and it sounds really scary.:(

B.C. is on major lookout for the flu, a LOT of people went to Mexico on spring break. My English teachers wife has a flu, and he's keeping a very strict eye on it. My grandparents also were very, very sick, so I really hope it isn't that.

I read that the Swine Flu was made of bird,human and pig viruses!!Anyone else heard or read that?What do you think??I think it has to be man made!

Virgo, read the articles Catlover shared. That's just ridiculous to even think of; it's known that the different flu viruses can mix with others and form new ones. Don't EVER dare say that a virus is manmade, because that's just ridiculous. The flu has been around for probably eternity now; humans can't change it, only influence it with vaccines.

Agreed; please don't post wild rumours unless you have a link to back it up. The fact is, weird hybrids of that kind just don't happen in nature. The chances of there ever being a combination of bird, human and pig flu virus are as likely as there ever being a cabbit.

i've heard this...my grandma just had it :(

Is swine flu 'the big one' or a flu that fizzles?

In this article it says that it is mixed between human,bird and pig viruses.

Catlover642 04-26-2009 10:17 PM

H1N1 is in pigs, but no where did it state in the Wikipedia it was a hybrid virus.

Yes but anyone can edit Wikipedia and if you read the article I linked the CDC said it was a mix.
