It is a virus (microscopic organism) that generally infects pigs and can in some cases infect humans. The recent outbreak classed epidemic because of transmission from person to person.
Viruses keep mutating, once you catch the flu, your body reacts to fight it, once resistant, you never catch it again. But people get the flu every year because of it's mutations that the body is not resistant to. Seasonal outbreaks to which bodies do not become resistant are treated with vaccines (like any other virus), whereby a dead or weak form of the virus is injected (to uninfected persons) to get the body use to it.
The H1N1 Strand of influenza A , termed 'swineflu' has never infected humans before and the vaccine could take up to 6 months to make.
NB: There is no evidence to prove that handling pork can result in contamination.
- I reckon that deserves best answer, how about you?
