Swine Flu viruses do not normally infect humans, however, human infections with swine flu do occur, and cases of human to human spread of swine flu viruses has been documented. Pigs can harbor influenza viruses can be adapted to Human : 5/4/2009 4 Pigs can harbor influenza viruses can be adapted to Human Facts & Symptoms of Swine Influenza : 5/4/2009 5 Facts & Symptoms of Swine Influenza Caused by a reassortant swine influenza A (H1N1) virus with gene segments from swine, avian and human strains. Clinical illness range from mild flu symptoms to severe viral pneumonia. Deaths have occurred in Mexican cases. 24 hours presymptomaic infections period. Peak infections period at start of development of symptoms. Upto 1/3rd cases are asymptomatic SWINE FLU 2009 : 5/4/2009 6 SWINE FLU 2009 In late March and early April 2009, cases of human infections with Swine Influenza A (H1N1) viruses were first reported in southern California and near San Anthonio,Texas.

Pandemic Alert Gaps in knowledge of clinical features, epidemiology and virology. Source: Ministry of Health Singapore Update 29th April 2009 The Director-General raised the level of influenza pandemic alert from the current phase 3 to phase 4. The change to a higher phase of pandemic alert indicates that the likelihood of the pandemic has increased, but not that a pandemic in inevitable.

Source: Ministry of Health Singapore Update 29th April 2009 Swine Flu differs from Human Flu : 5/4/2009 10 Swine Flu differs from Human Flu The H1N1 swine flu viruses are antigenically very different from human H1N1 virus and, therefore, vaccines for human seasonal flu would not provide protection from H1N1 swine flu viruses. Out breaks amongst Pigs : 5/4/2009 11 Out breaks amongst Pigs Outbreaks amongst pigs normally occur in colder whether months and sometimes with the introduction of new pigs into susceptible herds. Studies have shown the swine flu H1N1 is common throughout pig populations worldwide, with 25% of animals showing antibodies evidence of infections. How Humans are exposed : 5/4/2009 12 How Humans are exposed Most commonly, these cases occur in persons with direct exposure to pigs. Symptoms of Swine Flu : 5/4/2009 13 Symptoms of Swine Flu Fever Lethargy Lack of appetite Coughing Running nose Vomiting Diarrhea Sore Throat How long can an infected person spread swine flu to others? : 5/4/2009 14 How long can an infected person spread swine flu to others? People with swine influenza virus infection should be considered potentially contagious as long as they are symptomatic and possible for up to 7 days following illness onset. Children, especially younger children, might potentially be contagious for longer period. How long can the virus live outside the body? : 5/4/2009 15 How long can the virus live outside the body? Virus or bacteria can live up to 2 hours or longer on surfaces like cafeteria tables, doorknobs and desks.
