I have some questions about the swine flu.
1. How long does it take for the swine flu to get into your body? Like by germs.
2. How did the swine flu start, and Where?
Please and thank you for answering my questions also if there is anything else that you know of please let me.

around 7 days the symtoms will start appearing/attacking your body
Started in Mexico by a gene of a sick pig going to another. Then farm workers started touching these pigs and they got it, and spread it.
Wash your hands and sanitize then every hour. Also wash your hands after you cough/sneeze.

Don't panic, for G*d's sake! Just be informed and take the same precautions you would use to keep yourself healthy during a regular flu season.
Here is the CDC (Center for Disease Control) website:
Here are some practical ways to stay healthy:
What You Can Do to Stay Healthy
There are everyday actions people can take to stay healthy.
*Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. *Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
*Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze, before you touch your eyes, nose or mouth. Alcohol-based hands cleaners are also effective.
*Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way. *Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
Influenza is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through coughing or sneezing of infected people.
If you get sick, CDC recommends that you stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.

Honestly. The Swine flu is just a case of Influenza. It's just a magnified version of the same thing.
Take some Tamiflu and it'll be gone. The reason their making a big deal is because 1.) People died in Mexico of poor health and lack of medication, and 2.) The news wants to keep their ratings up.
Don't freak out, and be "terrified" like one of the first people said. Calm your nerves. This is the same thing that happened with the Bird Flu and Mad Cow disease. It'll pass.

the swine flu is past by the pigs poo and spit. if u work on a hog farm and like for example working with a boar they use their spit to get the sows and guilt's in the mood (if u know what i mean). and u get that spit on ur hands and then go and cough in ur hand u can get it. so on.. its crazy i used to work on the hog farms in my town
it took me and my hubby and most of the workers over night. we have been getting facts sheets and question-airs from the main office asking if we are all sick.. kinda crazy. like we felt great. then went to bed work up feeling like crap.. but not sure if its swine flu its under investigation
live in a town in missouri that has Smith-field hog farms. Which smith-field half owns the hog farm in Mexico that's being investigated. i think most of the people here have it. kiddy schools are being closed they think some of the kids have it. i think my hubby and myself have it n' i got a 6month old. plus everyone that works on the farms have all the symptoms. the hospital wont let no body in the doors unless they have the symptoms everyone else has to go to the health clinic.. but no word on if its the swine flu
