I have one.

If you are easily scared with diseases like the swine flu and such, don't look down!


Scientists are fearing that the bird flu, and the Swine flu will combine, making a super virus. The bird flu is much more deadly than the swine flu, but the bird flu doesn't spread as easily as the swine flu!

If the two viruses meet, they can combine, getting the deadliness of the bird flu, and the easily spread ability from the swine flu.

This is not a joke, even though the name of the two viruses would be fun, when, and IF they combine. It's not certain that they will combine, but scientist are thinking it could happen, in the future.

The birswidne flu! ;O


Post Potter depression.

I do fear the Swine Flu, but people need to understand something.
 You need to be sanitary. Washing your hands, covering your mouth when you cough/sneeze, don't be around others when you are sick.

That's how things spread. People are ignorant of that. They don't always wash their hands and sneeze on things like their desks and stuff.

I don't see this as the end of the world, but what do I know? I believe the end of the world is when Jesus comes, so....yeah.

It's probably good to try to build up your immune system though. Like taking supplements or getting enough sleep.

I get enough sleep thanks to my parents. lol China! Stop sniffing for food. (China is my aunt and uncle's dog we are taking care of often, she looking for food.) I do that stuff yet, I get sick. People need to eat more veggies and fruit and less junk food! And take your vitamins.

What does eating good food have to do with the Swine Flu?  Sorry, but I had to ask...

I'm not worried about the swine flu ending the world or anything.  I think it will be devastating, but we'll carry on.  That is, if it's part of God's plan.  It will be like the smallpox in the 1900's... at least that's what I think...

That's what I thought, but when I first read it, I totally gapped!  :P

I just sleep and wash my hands for protection!

I totally agree! I ate healthy, got a reasonable amount of sleep (most of the time), washed my hands and all that before any of this ever happened! It's like they're reminding us about the obvious!

Swine flu was originally called "swine flu" because it resembles influenza virus infecting pigs. The tribe of concern at present is a mutant form known as swine flu being transmitted from human to human.

Swine flu is an infection caused by a virus. It is a general term for influenza viruses adapted to pigs, causing a respiratory disease in the animals. The virus is contagious and can spread from human to human.

As per my knownledge, Human swine flu was originally called 'swine flu' because it is similar to influenza viruses that infect pigs. The strain presently causing concern is a mutated form called Influenzavirus A  or human swine influenza which can be spread from human to human.
