How does swine flu spread?

It spreads in the same way as seasonal influenza – through direct contact (being within one metre of an infected person) or indirect contact (touching a contaminated surface).

People usually get swine influenza from infected pigs, however, some human cases lack contact history with pigs or environments where pigs have been located.

Human-to-human transmission has occurred in some instances but was limited to close contacts and closed groups of people
