Swine Flu  
Swine Flu
The H1N1 swine flu virus first appeared in the U.S. in April 2009. H1N1 was originally called "swine flu" because the virus that causes the disease spread to humans from the live pigs in which it evolved. The virus has a mix of genes from swine, bird, and human flu viruses. To distinguish it from flu viruses that infect mainly pigs and from the seasonal influenza, the CDC calls the virus "2009 H1N1 virus." Other names include "novel H1N1" or nH1N1, "quadruple assortant H1N1," and "2009 pandemic H1N1."
