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.

* Interactively observe flu trends worldwide or in a specific region as far back as 10 years ago.
* View web, news, blog, discussion, twitter, video, cdc web, and cdc podcasts published at the time and place of your data selection.

* 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."

After using this for just 1 night, now I know why I'm always tired! Awesome execution and interface. I LOVE how we can zoom into and move throughout the graph. This is the most valuable app ever; seriously! I've tried 3 other apps but yours beats them all... easily! Thank you!
This app just opened my eyes! Not only it records my snores but even the sounds and voices of the spirits beyond. A must have app!
Clear data on snoring with playback and analysis. No more guessing if you are improving or getting worse. Am now trying various methods to get better quieter sleep.
Never rated an app before, this definitely deserves it though. So easy to use, clear and doesn't use up battery life.

ILI, ARI and virilogic data provide different ways of measuring the level of influenza in a population. ILI stands for influenza-like illness. Public health agencies often track the percentage of doctor visits each week which are related to ILI, gathering data from a network of sentinel healthcare providers.
This Tracker won the 'Best Educational App' award for 2011 in Ireland's national Appys awards in November 2011. The app will assist the many parents living in Ireland in ensuring their new family member is protected against a range of life-threatening diseases to which infants and young children are most susceptible. The service also includes reminders for the Cervical Cancer vaccine for 12-13 year old schoolgirls.
Setting up a new child record is easy and will only take a minute or two. You can customise each record if you wish with a photo of the child and their blood group (if known) as well as recording your GP’s phone number so you can call direct from the app to set up your next appointment. The app sends timely ‘push’ reminders to your Android smartphone when vaccines are due, as well as providing lots of information on childhood diseases and the vaccines used to prevent them. A powerful exclusive feature of this app is that, in the event of a disease outbreak eg. measles or swine flu, Irishhealth.com can send an instant ‘alert’ via the app to all parents.
The app also has a ‘live’ feed of breaking child health news stories from Irishhealth.com. In addition, you can email a copy of each child’s full schedule to the address of your choice – whether this is your GP or simply to send yourself a copy for back-up purposes. The data used in this service is based on the current guidelines from the Royal College of Physicians in Ireland. It is only intended for parents of children in the Republic of Ireland, as vaccination schedules vary in other jurisdictions.
Keep Up With The Flu is two applications in one. The first part is an Android home screen widget that keeps you informed about flu activity in your area. Using the GPS capabilities of your Android device, Keep Up With The Flu automatically checks the CDC flu reports for updates wherever you are. If there are changes in flu activity, you will receive a notification in the status bar, allowing you to take appropriate action to prevent the flu.
In order to create a widget, you must long press an empty 2x1 area on one of your home screens, select Widgets, then Keep Up With The Flu. Once you create the widget, you may also launch the news reader and configuration options by clicking anywhere within the widget area.
The second part of the application is a useful news and feed reader that connects the user to the CDC's flu resources. Users can view news and updates, twitter feeds, podcasts and videos from the CDC.
In addition, you can also configure the widget from the news reader screen. This includes disabling notifications or only receiving notifications if the flu report is different than the previous report in your area. You may also choose to manually refresh the widget from this screen.
