Swine flu is usually caused by the influenza virus. This virus affects the respiratory tract of pigs. It is highly contagious and leads to barking cough, decreased appetite, nasal secretion and listless behaviour. It can be transmitted from one person to the other through inhalation of the virus including sneeze or cough from the infected person. It can also be transmitted by ingesting the saliva of the infected person (engaging in activities such as kissing or sharing food with an infected person).
Swine flu symptoms include high fever (more than 100 degrees F), dry cough, nasal secretions, headache and a feeling of fatigue. Prolonged swine flu can lead to much severe symptoms such as seizures, shortness of breath, nausea, diarrhoea, severe body aches and chills
