Swine flu, also known as 2009 H1N1 type A influenza, is a human disease. People get the disease from other people, not from pigs.
The disease originally was nicknamed swine flu because the virus that causes the disease originally jumped to humans from the live pigs in which it evolved. The virus is a "reassortant" -- a mix of genes from swine, bird, and human flu viruses. Scientists are still arguing about what the virus should be called, but most people know it as the H1N1 swine flu virus.
The swine flu viruses that usually spread among pigs aren't the same as human flu viruses. Swine flu doesn't often infect people, and the rare human cases that have occurred in the past have mainly affected people who had direct contact with pigs. But the current "swine flu" outbreak is different. It's caused by a new swine flu virus that has changed in ways that allow it to spread from person to person -- among people who haven't had any contact with pigs.
Swine influenza, also called pig influenza, swine flu, hog flu and pig flu, is an infection caused by any one of several types of swine influenza viruses. Swine influenza virus (SIV) or swine-origin influenza virus (S-OIV) is any strain of the influenza family of viruses that is endemic in pigs.

Due to the nature of the Influenza virus, there is no guarantee that you will not get the flu, regardless of what precautions you take. And as such, no warranty is made that the techniques described in this app will keep you disease free. This instructional app merely provides information on how to minimize that risk. Again, there are no guarantees. This app provides no medical advice; it is for informational purposes only.
Should you get the flu or exhibit symptoms of flu or any disease, you should immediately see a qualified medical practitioner.

* Interactively observe flu trends worldwide or in a specific region as far back as 10 years ago.

* Identify causative mechanisms and suggest locale-specific improvements in prevention and treatment strategies.
This app was developed to demonstrate two concepts.
The first is that simple, modular solutions can sometimes produce great yields (think nuclear energy). Consider also that this app can easily be altered to suit any data set, yet was published solely in the interest of Flu awareness.
The second concept is a novel one. The ever-expanding wealth of information available on the internet has yet to be parsed for correlations between media events and consumer health. Tools such as this one seek to turn medical research into an on-the-go, interactive experience that can take place anywhere, anytime, and by anyone."
Graph: Displays Flu activity levels for the given region and given date range. Place two fingers on the screen to select a date range and then double-tap to zoom in. (alternatively use the manual Date Range Button)
Country Button: Select a country from the drop-down list to graph its activity.
Region Button: Select a state / province from the drop-down list to graph its activity.
Date Range Button: Select a start date and an end date for the graph to display.
Max Range Button: Zoom out to the maximum available data for the currently selected region.
Media Buttons: Click a media icon on the bottom of the screen to open a web page displaying Flu-related media regarding the selected date range and region (if appropriate). Note that Twitter information has only been indexed from 1/1/2011 and on at the time this app was published.
Try it yourself: select a region and a date range that might correspond to a known event, narrow your date range to the time period preceding the spike, and see how quickly you can gather causative information."
