The term swine flu is wrong.
The World Organization for Animal Health said the virus is of swine, avian and human components… in fact, a cocktail of four different strains.
“The virus has not been isolated in animals to date. Therefore, it is not justified to name this disease swine flu.
“The avian strain is of American origin, and of the two swine strains, one is American origin and the other appears to be Asian. The human strain is American.
“There is no proof that this virus, currently circulating among humans, really is of animal origin. There is no element to support this.”
The strain may further mutate as it is transmitted among humans, and, in addition, humans may infect pigs rather than the other way round.
