Swine Flu Symptoms
Looks like Swine Flu is the newest virus threatening North America. After killing 61 people in Mexico and sickening another thousand, swine or “Pig Flu” is making its way to the United States. So far only 7 cases have been reported in California and Texas, but the World Health Organization believes this could be more than just a passing flu. Although usually rare in humans, this strain seems to be different. The symptoms of swine flu are similar to the regular flu including fever, cough, fatigue and lack of appetite.
The White House and President Obama have been notified of the 7 cases and are monitoring any other possible outbreaks. The WHO reminds the general public to stay away from large crowded events and busy areas. Also, informing your children about washing there hands and if possible, getting them vaccinated.
