However, the figures may be high since from rural and semi-urban areas the swine flu cases go unreported. This Friday, six cases were officially reported as new cases of infected day in a single day.
The Rajasthan Health Department has issued a swine flu alert advisory to people and hospitals urging people to consult doctors if they had flu like symptoms and undergo the test for swine flu so the proper treatment could be given.
Swine influenza or swine flu infection is caused by any one of several types of swine influenza viruses known as H1N1, H1N2, H2N1, H3N1, H3N2, and H2N3. As we know that H1N2 influenza virus was found in pigs around 2000 and among humans it is marked by symptoms like chills, fever, sore throat, muscle pains, severe headache, coughing, weakness and general discomfort.
Around the mid-20th century, identification of influenza subtypes became possible, allowing accurate diagnosis of transmission to humans. One may recall that it was the year 2010 that the infection had spread in many countries.
