    Hi,
    The symptoms of swine flu are similar to those of influenza and of influenza-like illness in general. Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. As with other flu like illnesses, Swine flu is spread as follows:Coughing ,Sneezing ,Kissing ,Touching infected objects ,Touching nose, mouth and/or eyes with infected hands. Everybody is worried about it because it is highly contagious and spreads as an epidemic causing rapid loss of lives .The best prevention against swine flu is to wear masks and keep hands washed every now and then . If an infected person is come across,he should not be touched without taking adequate precautions.Hope this helps you. Take care and regards !
