5Causes of Swine Flu:
Swine flu first appeared in a 10 year old girl in California in April 2009. Later on, it was later declared as a global pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO).
The disease generally spreads from coming in contact with an infected pig or an infected person’s bodily fluids, through sneezing, coughing, or touching a contaminated surface and putting hands in your nose, eyes or mouth.
Around 80% of people under the age of 65 are susceptible to H1N1 death, whereas 70% to 90% of deaths occur in over 65 year olds, including young children, pregnant women, adults and chronic disease sufferers. Besides, nursing home employees and people with weak immune systems are at-risk groups.
