They say that bits of rna of this swine flu virus came from 3 different continents (as heard in the last podcast).
The swine flu was first called mexican flu, but the name has changed, perhaps because the mexican gov didn't like it?
Where was the first pig with the swine flu living? Did any pig get the H1N1 at all??

Peace

It is just a stronger version of  Flu than the normal winter flu due to Media needing a name.
