What virus is caused by bird flu?
Asked in Swine Flu (H1N1/09)
What is the origin of the name swine lu?
Swine flu was first discovered in people working with pigs. Flu is a disease that is transmitted in various forms among people, pigs, and birds. Sometimes bird flu is transmitted to pigs, and sometime pig flu is transmitted to people. What actually happens is that a pig has pig flu and catches bird flu. A chromosome from the bird flu gets mixed with the pig flu and changes it to a different type of flu. Then a person with human flu catches pig flu. A chromosome with pig and perhaps bird flu mixes with the human flu. The flu is mainly human flu but contains pig and bird flu chromosomes. It got the name swine flu because people working with pigs caught it first. Because it has the pig and bird chromosomes, people with resistance to human flu, have less resistance to swine flu.
How do you know if a bird has the flu?
What would happen if Swine Flu and bird flu mutated into each other Would you get flying pig flu?
Actually, the 2009 Swine Flu (Influenza A, Novel H1N1) is just that, a mutation of the swine flu and bird flu combined that people are able to get now as a human virus. See the answer in the related question section below for a more in depth answer to what caused the 2009 Swine flu. I believe you would get oinking bird flu instead. I think it would be flying pig flu but it would be given a scientific name. :) No the answer is ........ Pink oink flying bird flu!
