Default Swine Flu - 04-26-2009, 02:01 PM

New U.S. swine flu cases spread pandemic fears - Infectious diseases- msnbc.com

20 cases have been confirmed in the United States and 81 people have been killed in Mexico.

Swine influenza - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A article about what swine flu is and why it is classified differently from regular flu.

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.

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.

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.



I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!

You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!

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.

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.

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.
