Swine flu is a respiratory disease of pigs first described in the 1930s and while historic transmissions to people have been \"sporadic\", the human infection rate is rising.

Before the current spate of cases, there were 12 known transmissions of swine flu to humans across the United States from 2005 to February this year.

This was up from just one person contracting swine flu \"every one or two years\" across the US up to 2005.

\"Swine flu viruses do not normally infect humans, however, sporadic human infections with swine flu have occurred,\" says the United States\' Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The cases commonly involved pig industry workers, the CDC says, or people who came into close contact with infected pigs at country fairs.

One upon a time there was a swine. Once upon a time there was a flu. once the flu attacked the swine and the swine carried it. Later on more people saw the plight of the swine and agree to share the burden of this swine sufferring from flu. And lo more and more people are now sharing so that others burden carrying this flu is reduced. That is History.
