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.

What is the type of pathogen that causes Swine Flu?

It is the similar virus like flu virus that causes swine flu. Only thing that this virus has evolved in swine. It affects the human accidentally. Human to human spread is uncommon. ( A dental student stayed in the room of contributor for about a week. Contributor did not get the infection. Though no mask was used by him.) This virus has affinity for lower respiratory tract.

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.

No. The flu is caused by a virus, not bacteria.

Can Swine Flu mix with another virus?

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.

Pictures of Swine Flu?

Just go to a image search engine like Google Images and type in Swine Flu or Swine Flu Virus.

Why did they rename Swine Flu?

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.

How are Swine Flu and H1N1 different?

There are many different flu viruses called both H1N1 and swine flu, and this is very confusing because the same names are used for different things. In the type of swine flu that pigs get (the original "swine flu"), they are usually referring to the same virus, just called by different names. But there are H1N1 flu viruses that pigs do not get, and/or that are not the same virus. For the "swine flu" that caused the pandemic of 2009, the names are interchanged often in common use, and that adds to confusion. To be specific and more correct in referring to this type of flu virus, it is best to not call it simply H1N1 or simply swine flu. To be more specific, it is called the A-H1N1/09 influenza virus and the pandemic swine flu. Please see the related question below that will help clarify the terminology and names for the 2009 pandemic "swine" flu.

What type of virus is swine flu?

It is a Type A Influenza virus.

What is a H1N1 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.

Does antibacterial gel work on Swine Flu?

I would guess not since Swine Flu is a VIRUS and not BACTERIA

Does the current Novel H1N1 Swine Flu contain elements of avian flu?

Yes. It does contain genetic material of Avian Flu in addition to three types of swine flu and also human flu viruses. (Avian flu is also called "Bird Flu"). When a virus mutates like this one did in pigs with five different genomes in the virus, it is called a quintuple reassortant (also known as reassortment) virus.The three types of swine flu genetic material in the A-H1N1/09 pandemic flu are American swine flu, Asian swine flu, and European swine flu.

What fungi causes Swine Flu?

Swine Flu A-H1N1/09 is caused by a virus, not by a fungus. The virus is a Type A Influenza strain named A-H1N1/09 or also called the Pandemic Swine Flu virus among other names around the world.

Will amoxicillin treat Swine Flu?

No, swine flu is a virus and amoxicillin is an antibiotic which means it only fights bacteria. The effects of Swine flu can lead to infections that may or may not require the use of an antibiotic like amoxilin. However the amoxilin does not fight the Swine flu virus it fights the infection that is caused by the original presence of the virus. Your immune system takes care of the virus.

What type of virus is the H1N1 classified as?

It is a Type A Influenza virus with RNA genome.Also called Swine Flu, the 2009 Pandemic Flu, 2009 Swine Flu, and A-H1N1/09.
