Abstract

Swine flu is an infectious disease of the respiratory tract caused by the swine influenza virus (H1N1, H3N2, and H3N1) causing millions of deaths across the world. People show symptoms of high-grade fever, aching muscles, decreased thirst, anorexia, rapid breathing, sore throat, dry cough. It may manifest mild illness or in some people it may result in life-threatening conditions like pneumonia, acute bronchitis, worsening of chronic conditions, respiratory failure, and death. The severity of effects depends on individual factors such as the specific strain of the swine flu, age, general health status, and presence of co-existing conditions such as cancer or diabetes. The five most affected nations were the United States, Russia, Turkey, China, and India. The first swine flu virus in India was reported in May 2009.
