Swine Flu: What it is and what it isn't

· Despite its name, there is no evidence to date that this particular virus originated in pigs or is spread from pigs to people.

· Even though there is no evidence this new virus is found in pigs, swine practitioners have stepped up their surveillance.

· There is no reason to question the safety of your food.

o While there is no evidence this virus has been found in pigs, even if it were, proper preparation would kill the virus.

o As always, practice proper food hygiene when preparing meals.

· This virus is spread from person to person.

· The incubation period is estimated at 1 to 8 days, typically about 48 hours.

· Be vigilant. Visit your physician if you experience flu-like symptoms.
