Pigs At Fowlerville Fair Test Positive For Swine Flu
Health officials have confirmed that pigs at the Fowlerville Fair last week tested positive for swine flu. According to the Livingston Post, the infected pigs began showing symptoms in the evening hours of Thursday, July 26th, and laboratory results were confirmed late Friday afternoon for swine flu.
For those people that were at the fair last week and have concerns, the human symptoms of swine flu are similar to those of seasonal flu. Symptoms of swine flu can include fever, cough, runny nose, and sometimes body aches, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. Symptoms usually appear within three days of exposure but can occur up to 10 days. So far, there have been no reports of any humans infected with the illness.
