How long after swine flu infection do symptoms start?
How long after you get exposed to swine flu do you start getting the symptoms? Also does anyone know when the epidemic started in Mexico?

Steve C
After a weeeeeeek you break out in rashers.

The flu started like two weeks ago I think.
The symptoms occur probably after a day or so. You won't immediately know it though.

about 48 hours

You might want to check out:

My mother told me that your most likely to spread the sickness when you dont even realize that you have them, so bascilly you'd be spreading it and not even know it until about 2 or 3 days later symptoms show

Also its Hitting other countries too like Austraila,New Zeland for sure, and in Paris/France ect.

Cera Nicole
just watch extra tonight cause they r doing a big thing about it and they r gonna have doctors on

6-10 days

Sara K
I was worried too but felt much better after reading this article: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/04/29/Swine-Flu.aspx

Washing your hands is a good idea. Surprisingly, eating garlic does have antibiotic effects. Oh, and you can't get swine flu from eating pork products. I hope this helps!

Swine Flu Q&A
What you need to know and how to protect yourself from infection:



watch abc news or channel 7 or 9... well the symptons that i heard of are like getting a regular flu muscle aches, fever thats over 100 is soooo bad, headache, the symptons you get with a regular flu but i hope we stay safe and healthy:)

I read it might have started as soon as February/March, supposedly a lot of people died in Mexico because of Pneumonia but I believe some cases were identified as swine flu.
I'm not sure though..

Jon J

It like a normal flu just ride it out like any sickness, The media have nothing better to report on of late, so next it will be dog flu then cat flu and then chicken flu. come on bird flu is just as much of a joke.

R.I.P. Marley Dusty, & Cosmo =`(

apparently this is the list of where swine flu has hit i found on the website. they said if symptoms occur get medical help. but you know what people die from cancer, being hit by cars and buses, as long as you keep aware and stay clean hehe just look after yourself and dont let the media make it seem worse they are always so stupid:)

just recently on MSN and the World Health Organization, they say that the swine flu virus can last up to seven days on a human, and they will not experience symptoms, and still pass the virus on. so about 2-7 days after a person is infected, will they experience symptoms

1 .........
The incubation time for swine flu is believed to be pretty short - 48-72 hours, and the virus seems to spread easily between people.

The first confirmed death involved a woman who succumbed from swine flu April 13 in southern Oaxaca state.

i got the swine flu and its been 2 days since i had it should i go to a hospital and im 14

my mom is a nurse and she says it starts in a day there is no cure for it besides time no americans have died only mexicans and there is a medication that makes you feel better but it does not cure it.

Mutat Ed
It varies. The problem is knowing when you were exposed. You could be exposed to the virus and never know it. When do you start counting days. Here is a helpful article, it looks like around 1-5 days.

its just like any other flu..dont worry about it

What is swine flu?
It is a respiratory disease affecting pigs that is caused by type A influenza virus. Most outbreaks occur during the late fall and winter months, similar to influenza outbreaks in humans.

Does it affect humans?
Swine flu viruses very rarely affect humans. However, sporadic human infections with swine flu have occurred. These cases commonly occur in people with direct exposure to pigs.

How does it spread to humans?
It spreads to humans mainly through contact with infected pigs.

Can people catch swine flu from eating pork?
There is currently no evidence to suggest that swine flu can be transmitted to humans from eating pork or pork products that have been thoroughly cooked.

What are the symptoms?
The symptoms of swine flu are similar to the symptoms of regular influenza. An early symptom is high fever, and this is followed by cough, sore throat, runny nose, and sometimes breathlessness a few days later.

How can the infections be diagnosed?
A respiratory specimen would be collected within the first four to five days of illness, when the infected person is most likely to be shedding the virus. However, some, especially children, may shed the virus for 10 days or longer.

What medications are available to treat the infection?
There are four different antiviral drugs that are licensed for use in Singapore: amantadine, rimantadine, oseltamivir and zanamivir.
While most swine flu viruses have been susceptible to all four drugs, the most recent swine flu viruses isolated from humans are resistant to amantadine and rimantadine. At this time, the US CDC recommends the use of oseltamivir (Tamiflu) or zanamivir (Relenza) for the treatment and/or prevention of infection with swine flu viruses.

I think it takes seven to ten days. The students in NY contacted the disease while on Spring Break in Mexico. The vacation ended March 21, or there abouts.

With in 24 Hrs.

The symptoms of swine flu in people are similar to the symptoms of regular human flu and include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some people have reported diarrhea and vomiting associated with swine flu. In the past, severe illness (pneumonia and respiratory failure) and deaths have been reported with swine flu infection in people. Like seasonal flu, swine flu may cause a worsening of underlying chronic medical conditions.

State # of laboratory
confirmed cases
California 7 cases
Kansas 2 cases
New York City 8 cases
Ohio 1 case
Texas 2 cases
TOTAL COUNT 20 cases
