|Influenza A virus, of the family Orthomyxoviridae, carries an RNA genome. This genome encodes one or two non-structural proteins and nine structural proteins, which, together with a host cell?derived lipid envelope, comprise the influenza virus particle. Influenza virus causes widespread morbidity and mortality among human populations worldwide. Swine influenza is known to be caused by influenza A subtypes H1N1, H1N2, H3N1, H3N2, and H2N3. In pigs, three influenza A virus subtypes (H1N1, H3N2, and H1N2) are the most common strains worldwide. The symptoms of swine flu are cough, fever, sore throat, fatigue, decreased appetite, less commonly vomiting and diarrhoea.
