Swine flu is a respiratory illness in pigs caused by a virus. The swine flu virus routinely causes outbreaks in pigs but doesn't usually kill many of them.!!
(ONE report>>) no not curable but treated with only 2 types of medication that cures the flu strain. and anti virals are used but doesnt always work becuase this is a new strain and no cure for it and u have a higher risk of not getting cured if u have medical problems or if ur very fragile!!
two drugs GlaxoSmithKline and Roche are working closely with WHO, and hopefully this problem can be contained
