Swine flu vs Bird flu differences

A common discussion now is what are the differences between swine flu and bird flu virus?

Swine flu is a type of influenza virus usually found in pigs. The most common version is H1N1, and the current virus causing concern is a new variation of an H1N1 virus.

Swine flu does not typically pass to humans directly, but such transmission can occur. The current swine flu virus is concerning to health experts because it has shown the ability to pass from human to human.

The difference between bird flu and swine flu is that swine flu is less deadly, with a lower proportion of fatalities.

The bird flu virus affects all systems of human body, but the swine virus affects only the respiratory system.


  1. Yes, this is serious quiet killer we have to be cautious now, to prevent this, we have to ensure we are always clean such as clean our hands, do not cough openly, wear mask when in many people area, everyone is responsible to protect themself and other people.

  2. Swine Flu spread over Asia? There is one suspect case found in South Korea this morning, hope this is not real case.

  3. i went to the hospital and did test and was diagnosed with pig flu, not swine flu. so what does that mean?
