What are the symptoms of swine flu ?

The symptoms of swine flu in people are expected to be similar to the symptoms of regular human seasonal influenza and include fever, lethargy, snorting, cravings for slop and coughing. Some people with swine flu also have reported runny snout, sore throat, curly tails, achy hooves .       strange cravings for corn on the cob. 



Can people catch swine flu from eating pork?


Yes. Swine influenza viruses can be transmitted by food. You can get swine influenza from eating pork, pork chops, barbeque pork, bacon, ham, sausage and pork rinds.   Eating properly handled and cooked beef and chicken products are your best bet. Cooking pork to an internal temperature of  995°F kills the swine flu virus as it does other bacteria and viruses and pretty much anything else. 

How does swine flu spread?


Influenza viruses can be directly transmitted from pigs to people and from people to pigs and from pigs to pigs and from pig stye to people. Human infection with flu viruses from pigs are most likely to occur when people are in close proximity to infected pigs, such as in pig barns, pig pens     and livestock exhibits housing pigs at fairs. Human-to-human transmission of swine flu can also occur. This is thought to occur in the same way as seasonal flu occurs in people, which is mainly person-to-person transmission through coughing or sneezing of people infected with the influenza virus. People may become infected by touching something with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or snout 

There have also been unsubstantiated reports that watching old Porky Pig cartoons and or Charlottes' Web can help ease the symptoms of swine flu.

Sheila- Be sure that before you send them back, their snouts and pig tails have disappeared completely or they will get no end of teasing from the other kids.  -Dwight
