  • Yes, that's why we are being told to cough and sneeze into our arms and to wash hands a lot.

  • omfg...it's the flu (influenza A, another strain of it), it's just like a regular flu, of course it's contagious, just like almost any other stomach or resperitory virus or bacterial infection.

  • Swine flu is just like flu and it is highly contagious. Your doctor or child's doctor should have told you this and it has been all over the news and in newspapers for months.
