It's not just swine, it has bird flu mixed in maybe others as well.
It's not really been identified yet, and may still mutate.
Evidently pigs are abnle to mix diseases by eating...ummm

More hype Mock. Millions upon millions of people smoke everyday and we're suppose to worry about a pig flu?

I dunno. It's not a normal type A flu.
Ask Baja, Ha!. He's probably allready riding it out!

But the cerveza is cheaper!
They are being careful with this one because, unlike the bird flu, it can be transmitted from humans to humans.

This is the basis of pandemic flu. There are 152 people dead in Mexico and this is the fastest anything like this has covered the globe. I am four hours away from some of the worst flu in the nation. I am not worried about this and expect to see much worst in my lifetime.

The outbreak occurred near a farm run by Granjas Carroll de Mexico, which is partly owned by Virginia-based Smithfield Foods. The company, the largest producer of hogs in the United States, issued a statement saying it "has found no clinical signs or symptoms of the presence of swine influenza in the company's swine herd or its employees at its joint ventures in Mexico."
"Smithfield has no reason to believe that the virus is in any way connected to its operations in Mexico," the company said.
Residents in Perote have long been unhappy with the pig-breeding farms and have regularly claimed they have become sick from the pollution emanating from the farms.
The mayor of Perote, Guillermo Franco Vázquez, said in a phone interview that around March 20, about 800 people became ill. Twenty-five people with more serious cases were later tested, and only one, the young boy, tested positive for swine flu.
Vázquez said that starting Tuesday, municipal authorities plan a house-to-house monitoring program that will include testing anyone with even the slightest flu symptoms.
"The mayor's office is monitoring things constantly," he said, adding that results will be sent to federal authorities tracking the outbreak.

In 6 months this will go down as another SARS. Huge media coverage, huge income potential for big pharma and the death toll is still not going to get anywhere close to how many people get killed in traffic in the States annualy
