Yes, swine 'flu is caused by a strain of the influenza virus.
What cities of Mexico has the swine flu affected?
until the affected person is dead!!
No. Swine flu (H1N1) is a subtype of the influenza A virus.
Swine flu is an RNA virus belonging to the family Orthomyxoviridae.
The way in which Swine flu affected china was that the number of people that went china decreased. This is because people were scared that they would get the virus.
SWINE flu..?? That would be a swine, dear (a pig)
Swine flu is no different in its symptoms from any other form of flu. Aches and pain are a noted symptom of flu, and the back is known to be particularly affected.
Pigs spread the original swine flu virus among themselves. The mutation, known as the 2009 Swine Flu (Influenza A, Novel H1N1 virus), that is now a human virus is spread by humans. It is a mutation of the swine flu and avian (bird flu) that has combined with a human virus.
It is caused by a virus called A-H1N1/09 influenza virus (aka swine flu).
Swine flu is caused by a virus, not bacteria. It is the Influenza Type A H1N1/09 virus that causes this type of flu.
Some people do but it is incorrect. Swine simply means pig/hog. The flu, Swine Flu, is called that because it started as a virus that only infected pigs, so it was the flu that the swine got. Since viruses mutate easily, it changed into a virus that caused flu in people as well as pigs. The name Swine Flu stuck then and also now with the virus causing the pandemic which is actually a third strain of the swine flu virus that people pass to people.
i dont think so but due to swine flu out break this year they are checking arrivals for swine flu virus no one in maldives are affected yet
weres swine flu most acure?
The swine flu is an infectious disease caused by a pathogen. The pathogen is a virus.
Neither. The H1N1/09 "Swine Flu" is caused by a virus.
No. The flu is caused by a virus, not bacteria.
Yes. In fact the way the H1N1 pandemic swine flu was formed by the mixing of a human flu virus, a bird flu virus and a swine flu virus in a pig. When two similar viruses that are infecting the same cell exchange genetic material this is known as reassortment. They go on to form a new virus.
Just go to a image search engine like Google Images and type in Swine Flu or Swine Flu Virus.
the official name for the swine flu is the H1N1 virus. At first, it was believed that the virus came from pigs, but now that we are convinced it actually does not, we refer to it as the H1N1 virus. However, it is still very commonly known as the swine flu.
It is a Type A Influenza virus.
Swine flu is a respiratory disease caused by type A influenza virus that regularly causes outbreaks of influenza in pigs. The "classical" swine flu virus (an influenza type A H1N1 virus) was first isolated from a pig in 1930. Swine flu viruses cause illness in pigs, but the death rates are low. This new virus, although it is being called "swine flu," is not the same virus.
I would guess not since Swine Flu is a VIRUS and not BACTERIA
