Think of this person as more of a Flu Police, that is watching for people with signs of infection. The other thing is that this flu is being incorrectly called the swine flu, it is not just for swines but has transfered to humans. It is now a human to human level or type of flu virus. It has mutated, AH1N1 Virus which is a combination of Avian Flu, Swine Flu and finally Human flu. What is DUMB is thinking this is a new virus. It (swine flu) virus was first isolated in 1930. This virus has had almost 80 years to self mutate and evolve. Those working on pig farms, slaughter houses etc., over time have developed natural antibodies and immunity to the new swine flu, or AH1N1. There have been outbreaks of this virus over the years. In 1988, at a County Fair in Wisconsin reports of over 100 people became infected with the virus with one unfortunate death. The pig / swine owners tested positive for antibodies to this swine to human virus transfer. Other past cases were reported in U.S. based military bases. Where swine or pigs were not kept. Strange? You CAN NOT GET SWINE FLU from eating properly cooked pork, ham, bacon, ham hocks, etc. However you can get worms from eating undercooked pig in any form, or toxoplasmosis from eating under cooked beef. Makes you think.
