Swine flu is caused by the H1N1 virus, which causes symptoms similar to those produced by other influenza viruses. Symptoms for swine flu include high fever, cough, sore throat, headache, muscle pain, diarrhoea, vomiting, respiratory problems, stomach pain and internal and external bleeding.

It is transmitted to people primarily from ticks and livestock animals with an incubation period of up to 9-days. Human-to-human transmission takes about 2-weeks.
